Actually, come to think of it, one thing I always disliked about England was the poor pressure in showers.
Shouldn't many of you therefore feel very much at home with one of these water-saving ones?
Things have moved on.

Modern U.K. systems bring the water to the shower by mains water pressure and not gravity-fed from a tank in the roof space as it used to be.

I suspect people have indoor toilets too now.

I don't think it's the water supply. It's the energy required to heat the water.
Well, we have a new(ish) heat pump that heats our hot water as well.

I might worry about how much energy I am using to heat the water for my brief showers when people here stop driving around in massive 4x4 or other big-engined cars.
Maybe they think the other way around. (BTW: I do NOT drive a big engined 4x4)

Hey, it's a 2'996 cm^3 engine, totally not a 3 liter one

PS. Albeit, I drove 12K km per year before the pandemic and only 5-6K km per year during the pandemic times. Not sure if people driving 30-40K km per year in an econobox effectively consume less. Maybe it's not the car but the lifestyle choices such as being a cross-border worker.

You wrote you have children. That gives you a much bigger footprint than any big SUV

Mind the children, let's get into real controversy: the emissions caused by large pet dogs are comparable to cars https://phys.org/news/2021-03-carbon...net-enemy.html

Let's organize the "Big EF Hot Dog Party To Save The Planet"!
I'm sure ST2Lemans can help with some recipes

They can think how they want. It's the figures that make the difference.

I'm sure these people have a shower too (or maybe even a bath!)

<<Yet shampoo can easily and thoroughly be rinsed out of even the longest hair. >> Well, they know what people worry about. With me it's not so much the length but the amount.
I might give it a try, considering how long and hot my showers tend to be. But if it's too soft I'll return to my cheap Coop-head in a flash.

So are you actually using this showerhead?
Yes, I use it, though my hair needs are closer to my avatar's than yours. OH is fine with hairs down to the middle of her back, but perhaps no "curley" volume
