With less than 1 per cent of all the earth’s water available as fresh water for human consumption, water obviously is a scarce resource and therefore, needs to be used judiciously. We have to find ways of cutting down wastage of water from our daily lives. In an average home, showers have typically the third largest water usage after toilets and washing machines. According to a UK sustainable shower study by Unilever UK and Ireland, on what British families really get up to in the shower, the findings were revealing. While previously people have talked about the five-minute shower, the study says the real figure is much higher with the average shower duration at eight minutes. An eight-minute shower with an average water flow rate uses around 62 litres of water. A US study as reported by The Washington Post says, “The average shower is 8.2 minutes long, and uses 65 litres of water.” Both studies imply a total usage of 90,000-95000 litres per year for an average family of four.
Conserving Water from Showers:
Living a more sustainable life usually means making personal sacrifices. Such as, if you are driving an electric car, you don’t expect the kind of power that petrol cars generate as you are cutting down on pollution. But what if you can save up to 30 per cent water without compromising on your showering experience? Yes, Air Showers can save up to 28,000 litres of water a year!
How does an Air Shower work?
It’s green technology, it’s revolutionary, and it’s sustainable living. Leading bathroom fixture manufacturers in India have developed a next-generation device called ‘Air Showers.’ They have a built-in air mixer that combines air and water. It fills the water droplets inside the shower with tiny bubbles of air making them voluminous. So what was 100 per cent water earlier is now 70 per cent water and 30 per cent air. The results are amazing. The shower stream feels just as wet, and just as strong as a stream from a shower without an air shower mixer but using much less water.
In fact, it feels better. When they (both water and air) eject from the air showers, air bubbles are literally trapped into each droplet making them bigger, softer and lighter. These water droplets, filled with air, when they fall on you, burst like miniature air-filled water balloons on your skin, turning into many small droplets giving a really refreshing feel.
So go ahead and have a guilt-free, showering experience without compromising on the quality of a shower. And what’s best, air showers come in a wide range of hand and overhead showers with single and multi-flow options.
