Water and Energy Efficient Showers Project Report (2007)

This report summarises the findings of an interdisciplinary study, which examined the factors influencing water use of domestic showering. Sponsored by United Utilities, it analysed the physical performance of 20 showerheads or flow restrictors through laboratory work, customer experiences associated with installations of water-saving devices in 18 homes, and water-related energy use through a comparison of shower and bath tube performance. The findings were used to identify and reinforce potential strategies to encourage efficient use of water and energy of showers in homes.
