Did you know there is a high standard to shower hoses? And depending on what kind you buy, what gadgets and gizmos you place with them, you can actually save energy and water consumption thus money!?
The subject of water savings, energy reduction and saving money is a large subject, so I will concentrate on showers and bathrooms in general as a ‘segue way’ (Italian word origin, and not French I found out, nor that really cool new-fangled way of getting around) with last month’s blog post on Shower Filter Heads.
The other point is to add a Shower Hose regulator and according to some estimates, you can save on average 30 litres per day. The skinny is that you insert these shower regulators by unscrewing your existing hose from the system (not the showerhead). The shower hose is then screwed in place into the regulator and voila!
Here’s the down low. Quality hoses are flexible, they never crimp, tarnish or split and they don’t cost that much more than regular shower hoses. The best Shower Hoses on the Market will fit all standard shower heads and are constructed with heavy duty double strength stainless steel to be very durable.
Here is a link to find such a hose in the U.K., but I am sure you can find them anywhere! http://www.waterwisely-savewatersavemoney.co.uk/
The point is to reduce your utility bills, water consumption and according to some estimates you can do this by as much as 95 litres per day! Even if you don’t pay for water, by heating less water you will use less gas, oil or electricity.
