The UN forecasts that by 2030 we will face a 40 % global water deficit, including in water-rich areas like Europe. The average shower uses 12 L of water per minute, or 33,000L per year per person. The Water Saving Shower has two simple functions to reduce water consumption. By default the shower is set to a medium flow. To increase the water flow, for example if you are washing your hair, simply squeeze the silicone handle. While the shower-head is attached to the frame, for example while you are applying soap, the water flow is reduced.
