How much water does each type of shower use?

Electric showers

  • Electric showers use between 3 and 10 litres per minute. This can vary slightly depending on the kW rating, the ambient temperature of the cold water entering the shower and the showering temperature selected.

Mixer showers

  • Mixer showers generally use between 5 to 30 litres per minute, depending on the available water pressure. Flow restrictors supplied with most mixer showers will, if fitted, provide economical flow from the shower on high-pressure water supplies. 

Power showers

  • Power showers consisting of a mixer and boost pump, will use between 10 and 16 litres per minute.
