Product Description

The Showertime unit allows you to monitor the amount of water you use each time you take a shower. A visual display and audio alert allow you to monitor your usage. How It Works Showertime works by gauging the average output of water from your shower and programming it to a timer with an audio alert. By filling the bag provided from your showerhead you can calibrate the unit. Once this is done you can set your own target (we recommend 35 litres or 4 minutes) Once the unit is set, it's ready to use! Each time you have a shower simply press the button, the Showertime will now give you a visual display of your usage and give you an audible alert when the target use is reached.

We bought this to try and make savings on gas and water (dont you just hate water meters!) but little did we know just how effective it is. After we realised that our three children were using between 150L and 200L of water each shower with one culprit regularly in the shower for 20 minutes, we used the volume alarm and set it for 50L and set up a competition to see who could use the least water on average, now they are in the shower for about 2 minutes and use around 25L of water.
The unit itself is pretty robust but I do agree with the other reviews here that the suction cup is prone to falling off unless you have a really good seal (or use a blob of clear silicon to stick the suction cup on). Set up is pretty easy to do even with the measuring bag to establish the flow rate of your shower. I would whole heartedly recommend one of these to anyone who wants to save money and if you have children (and especially teenagers) it is a no brainer. Buy one today!!

I wanted to try and be more concious about the amount of water being used since becoming a foster carer and after doing some research, I found this nifty gadget. It's easy to set up and is great at making you think about how much time you actually waste in the shower daydreaming etc (or maybe that's me!). I like the fact it becomes a challenge to make the target each day.

Easy to use and as it's complete with a display showing water usage and the time, I'm never too long in the shower. Would recommend to anyone.

We've been through two of these now; the supplier kindly replaced the first one when it stopped working after a month or so. The second one lasted about the same amount of time. The problem was that the suction cup didn't hold it on the wall properly so it fell on the shower floor, and while it can cope with being splashed in the shower, it can't cope with being immersed in water. Bit of a problem for something which lives in a shower cubicle and falls on the floor easily. If I were to buy another one, I'd use the supplied cord to hang it up as well as the suction cup.

Apart from that, I like the fact that once you program in a time, it stays at that time so you just hit the 'start' button at the start of every shower. The display helps to cue you in to timing your shower. If you want to program it the suggested way, ie by volume of water used, then it's a nuisance to set up - you have to fill a bag (supplied) with water and time it, to calibrate the timer against your shower. It's not always obvious what to do next and we ended up having to repeat this several times. Once set up, though, it was great... until it fell on the floor and stopped working.

I bought this item to see how much water I was actually using in the shower. And it does what is says on the tin!! Pretty easy to set up (bit of trial, error and getting wet) and then very easy to use after that. I have to admit I have gone over my water allowance on a few occations but at least you know! And you get a good feeling when you get out of the shower before the buzzer goes off!

Monitor lasted approx. 5 months - wrote to supplier - replied with advise but I explained the item had let in water and was beyond repair
It had been sited out of the direct flow of the shower but had clearly not been fit for purpose
The supplier was not interested in offering either a replacement or refund
Not very impressed with the product or supplier

My wife asked for something that would stop her daydreaming in the shower, which made her late for work. Well, this doesn't stop the daydreaming, but does help remind you how long you've been in the shower. Easy to use and set up, this does the job, with a countdown timer and loud alarm when you've reached your requested time. No need to set the timer each time, just set it up once and push one button to start it.
Loses a star since, as noted by previous reviewers, the suction cup is useless. Use the lanyard to hang off your shower rail or similar and it's fine, but don't rely on the suction cup keeping it from falling down!
Has coped with the damp atmosphere with no problems so far, though we don't hang it right under the shower, so it doesn't get directly wet.

We have just had a water meter installed courtesy of the water board and so I thought it was about time we made an effort to reduce our water usage on the shower front! I wanted more than just a very basic timer, which is why I went for this one.

I like the fact that you see the "tank" on the left fill up as the time progresses, as well as the litres count up. We haven't increased the litres, my husband made it within the 4mins/35 litres on the first go. The rest of us are doing better. The loud beep when you have run out of mind (which everyone passing the bathroom can here as evidence of you lack of success!) really concentrates you mind!

If I had any criticism, it would be nice for each person to be able to save your own usage so you could see it improving rather than rely on a memory. Also, there is no allowance in this whole effort for those of us with long hair (which obviously will take longer to deal with) as opposed to those who are losing their hair

It's a little fiddly to set up, although to be honest the default setting was about right anyway! Overall we are very pleased.
