How much water does each type of shower use?

Electric showers

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

Mixer showers

  • Mixer showers generally use from 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

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