What are the savings to Planet and Pocket,
through installing an Oxygenics

eco-Showerhead in your home?






If you are currently using a showerhead that is like the Niagara Falls (click here to find out how to measure your shower's flow rate), then you can make a huge difference to both your pocket and the planet for minimal effort.

A
family of four, each showering once a day for 6 minutes, will save the following:
  • R4000 at current electricity and water rates

  • Over 2 megaWatt hours of electricity, enough to power the average South African home for 6 months

  • 90 000 litres of water, enough to fill 3 swimming pools, which is also 90 000 litres that is not going to our already overflowing water treatment plants

  • Over 2 tons of carbon emissions, which is what you would save if you didn't drive your car from January to August
 
 


How does this compare to other energy saving measures?

We enthusiastically encourage everyone who can afford it, to make use of SA's abundant sunshine and install a solar geyser.

We want to point out, however, that a 2 square meter solar geyser panel on your roof collecting about 7 kWatt hours (units) of electricity per day, will cost you over R15 000. 

R
eplacing an 18 litre per minute (LPM) showerhead with Oxygenics at 8 LPM will
 
  save almost the same amount of electricity , but could cost you less than R200!!  Up to 75 times more cost effective.

Your showerhead will be paid off in about 3 weeks.  And there is also the bonus of the 90 000 litres of water saved.

So, while we all need to do everything we can to make a difference, why not start with the simple affordable things - the "reduce" part of reduce - reuse - recycle
