Rain drops keep falling on my head….

By Charis Fowler:

On Friday I had a good day out visiting our National Trust holiday cottages on the Gunby Estate in Lincolnshire.  This was an opportunity to identify and make some energy and water savings for these cottages.

Whilst I was there I changed several shower heads to water efficient ones.  This will save us both water and energy – so what’s not to like?  As far as I can see, nothing!

We hope those staying at our holiday cottages will enjoy the showers!

If no one notices…. perhaps that’s even better…. water and energy efficient by stealth!

Contrary to what you might think, the shower heads I used, Ecocamel Jetstorm E, also give a much better shower experience (even for low pressure or electric showers – using the E model) by drawing air through the shower head together with the water, which then increases the pressure, forcing the water out with more power.

I’ll post again about the other measures we implement…

    Hi Charis. Question about these aeration shower heads. I get how they increase the surface area of the water droplets meaning you need less water. In my very limited experience (one shower head!!) the additional air did also cool down the water somewhat. Has that been sorted with this new generation of head?
