Not sure if you have a high flow or low flow
showerhead? Do the following test: -

You will need: -

  • a bucket
  • a timer
  1. Turn on your shower to the maximum flow possible.
  2. Hold a bucket under the flowing showerhead catching
    every drop for 15 seconds - you will need a timer
    of some description - a watch with a second hand will do.
  3. As soon as 15 seconds is up, remove the bucket from
    under the showerhead and turn off the shower.
  4. Using a one litre measuring jug, measure how many litres of water you managed to capture in your bucket.
  5. Multiply the result by 4. If you find you have around thirteen litres or above, you have a high flow showerhead. If you find you have twelve litres or under, you have a low flow showerhead.

You can change from a high flow showerhead to a low flow in a variety of ways. The cheapest option for a DIY person is to install a water restricter that comes in six, eight, ten and twelve litre increments (we suggest you don’t go higher than ten) or you can replace the current showerhead with a low flow showerhead.

It is worth noting that some water providers are offering free low flow shower heads if you bring in your old one. It is then simply a matter of installing the new shower head by following the instructions provided.
