If you have a mains-pressure hot-water system, changing to a low-flow shower head could cut your hot-water bill considerably.

Replacing a 12-litre per minute shower head with one that flows at 8 litres can cut your hot-water bill by $153 a year.

Our user trial of 7 low-flow mains-pressure shower heads found 3 that came close to the perfect combination of comfort and effectiveness.
