Andrew is sceptical that the design can be as effective as a normal shower when using over 75% less water. Yet he likes the design and needs a new shower head anyway, so decides to try it out.
When the new shower head arrives, Andrew conducts an experiment to test the claims made. He finds a 9 litre bucket and a stopwatch. Using the old shower head, he times how long it took to fill the bucket with the hot tap on full. He then repeats the test having adjusted the water to a comfortable temperature. Finally Andrew repeats both tests with the new shower head in place. Click for his results:
Andrew and his wife are satisfied by the shower and recommend it to friends and family as a useful way of reducing energy and water use, saving them money and helping limit their impact on climate change.
This showerhead wins the GCSE.com How Science Works efficiency award and is highly recommended.
