This is probably a stupid question as i am sure the answer is yes, but thought i'd make sure.

You can see from the below pic the shower is fitted direct to the wall (power shower i think)? and has the 2 switches, top one turns ther water on and bottom one changes the temprature.

I am talking about the top one that turns the water on, if i just turn it a bit only a bit of water comes out, in general thats what you would want, but the shower is pretty powerful and i wouldn't mind having the output down a bit which would also save on the water consumption, but is this fine? or should a shower like this always have the full flow coming out?#

regards

James

You can get shower reducers that restrict the flow like this one
Screwfix have them too.


Might be the easiest way out

Think I'll get them too. 4 woman in a house taking half an hour each in the shower is making my gas bill ridiculous. :roll:

OOOPPSS sorry, meant to say to the OP that generally the shower (pump before the shower) will either be on or off.

A power shower (pump inside the shower unit) will be more controllable.
