What is a water-saving shower head?
A water-saving shower head, also known as a saving shower head, consumes 40% to 60% less water than a normal shower head. This is due to a built-in flow limiter. This limits the amount of water that can flow through the shower head. But that does not mean that the shower is less comfortable, in the least.
Water-saving shower head technology
New technology makes water-saving shower heads better and better. As a result, you experience the same comfort, while using less water and energy. Well-known brands such as Grohe and Hansgrohe apply these new techniques. Hansgrohe uses technology in many showers where water is mixed with air (Air Power). This makes the water droplets fuller and stronger, so that it looks like you are standing under a normal shower. But you save a lot of water that no longer needs to be heated. Another example is the Dreamspray technology that Grohe has on all showers. This technology ensures that the same amount of water always flows through each nozzle. Many people experience that as comfortable. And many showers have anti-scale technology, with which lime can easily be wiped away with a cloth or even with your hands. So no more clogged nozzles!
How much do you save with a water-saving shower head?
A saving shower not only reduces energy consumption, but also saves a huge amount of water. This is compared between a normal shower with average water consumption and a water-saving shower head is 40% more efficient.
When is a water-saving shower head really economical?

This is, for example, because showers are called water-saving while they use only a little less than average. Whether showers with a higher water consumption than average are compared to a normal consumption and then called water saving.
