Many people don’t want to change their bathroom habits to save water and instead look to water saving gadgets to help them save water. There are many ways to save water, from limiting the time you use it for, to limiting the amount you use by limiting the flow and also by just reusing the water you do use. If you want to save some water, save on your bills and just generally enjoy some cool gadgets then here are 5 of the top water saving tools you need for your bathroom.
1. Shower timer

Invest in a shower timer to help you keep your showers under the recommended 3 minute limit. You’ll save water, you’ll save money and most importantly you’ll save time. Why spend all those extra minutes in the shower in the morning when you could be doing something much more productive?
2. Cistern devices
There are many devices on the market that you can attach to the water cistern of your toilet so it uses less water to flush. The trick is finding a model that works with your toilet and that adjusts your flush correctly. Some cistern devices are a little overzealous and reduce your flush too much, so make sure you find a product that works well with your toilet.
3. Water syphon
So people love having baths despite the fact that they use a ton of water. If you can’t find it within yourself to give up your beloved baths, then why not make use of all that extra water by recycling it? Use a water syphon to pull the water out of your bath and use it to wash your car or water your plants? It’s a great way to keep doing the thing that you love while being water conscious.
4. Water saving shower head
Most showers nowadays have adjustable pressure settings or adjustable shower heads, but if yours does not then attach a water saving shower head to your shower. These little devices worth by slowing down the water coming out of your shower head so that it is not as powerful or adding air to the water, both methods meaning less water is used. Be careful though, many people use water-saving shower heads that slow down water too much and they end up taking longer showers to compensate – which negates the water saving effect. You must find the right balance if you truly wish to save water.
