Water is precious. Globally, some 0.3% is drinkable.

If your mains pressure shower flow is [b]too high[/b], then you may be wasting, on average, 12,000 litres of water a year in shower water alone. On a national scale, that amounts to nearly 80 billion litres of water wasted annually, or 312,000 Olympic sized swimming pools and 6,000,000 tonnes of CO2 generated in heating it.

The eaga ShowerSmart unit is designed to reduce and regulate the flow - where it is currently higher than 7.7 litres per minute, to that level.

The criteria for a shower to be appropriate to take the eaga ShowerSmart is that it has mains pressure fed water - i.e. non electric.

There are already installed in the country approximately 10million appropriate bath/shower mixer taps, with mains pressure, and therefore appropriate for use with the eaga ShowerSmart.

According to a number of data sources, including the UK Shower Report 2007 and the Office of National Statistics, this number will continue to grow up to 2010, and will be taking the market share from electric and power showers (where the shower is independent from the water supply). Therefore the number of suitable shower types with the correct configuration for the product is increasing.

If we all do our bit, we can help to save the equivalent of 25 Lake Windermeres annually. Take a look around, how many bodies of water the size of that do you see near to you?
