Thanks for that. Have you noticed any reduction in water consumption? At the moment we have a caravan with a 10 litre capacity water heater & can only get 1 shower before waiting for water to heat up again. So I am hoping to improve this. Terry.
Our motorhome came with the shower head as standard so we have nothing to compare. We generally get two showers per hot water tank but we don't have the shower running continuously. In the winter it is a bit touch and go for the second person using the shower so we tend to delay the second shower until the first person is completely ready so the water can heat up. We also in the winter run the heater on both gas and electrics whilst we have showers to maximise heating up of the water.
On the subject of how many showers from a tankful of hot water, we find the following system works well. (Forgive me if I am trying to teach Granny to suck eggs, but this is a recurring theme).
Ensure that the Aquaroll or onboard 40 litre tank is full.
We find you can get two showers out of a 10 litre hot water tank by setting the stall set out with shower gel, sponge etc. to hand. Remove shower tray drain plug.
Get undressed (important).
Set the water temperature to the required heat. You can use a lower temperature shower than perhaps you would do normally to conserve hot water.
Soak yourself thoroughly then switch off. Apply a dollop of shower gel to the sponge then soak the sponge but don't squeeze it. We want the sponge as wet as possible. Sponge yourself all over not forgetting those little private places. Turn water back on and thoroughly rinse the soap off.
The same system applies if washing your hair except that one would replace shower gel shampoo (or would one?).
Step out of the shower, dry off with a great big fluffy towel (luxury!!!!!).
Stand back, admire, (come on, we all do it). Apply smellies.
Get dressed (important!)
Make sure that the shower tray has drained down then wipe round. This last move is a particular pain if the shower is part of the toilet, separated by a shower curtain. Inevitably the toilet and the basin have to be wiped down.
Doing it as above, we find we can get two showers out of one tankful of hot water. The alternative is to stagger the showers to ensure the water is hot for the next person.
Fully agree with Dickers we tried this when we had our first van with a shower just to see how much water we used. We used the same formula and it surprised us just how little was used and we did not scrimp on the water we used Yours Scout aka Brian & Carole
