The average shower lasts eight minutes and can use almost as much water and energy as the average bath. According to research by Unilever, an eight-minute shower can use 76 litres of hot water, compared with an average bath's 80 litres. Research showed that if people were using a power shower - an appliance that adds extra pressure to the water flow - then an eight-minute shower would require twice as much water and energy as a bath. An average eight-minute shower per person would cost an average family approx. $700 a year; using a power shower would see the annual bill soar to $1,400.
The current recommendation is for people to take 3/5-minute showers by using a shower timer to control your shower time to 3/5 Minutes max, you could reduce your water consumption and hot water energy usage to just 37 Litres, saving around $300-$400 per year.
