Shower Timer research results - Engage and Save
ShowerBoB shower timers have been successfully helping individuals and organisations to save water and energy since 2009.
Over the years we have received many positive feedback and testimonials to their effectiveness.
University of Kent/UPP trial - 2014
With water, energy and economics becoming increasingly important on the political and social agenda, we wanted to find out just how effective ShowerBoB could be.
In 2014 we worked in collaboration with UPP Ltd, a leading provider of student accommodation, to conduct a trial at the University of Kent in their new halls of residence.
We surveyed 330 students across 6 halls of residence over four weeks. The ShowerBoB Twist shower timers were placed in the bathrooms of each room, together with a small cardboard tag with instructions for use.
When compared to the previous year, results demonstrate an average 13% saving in water use. Allowing for influencing factors such as international students and milder weather (degree day data), we agreed upon a 'safe' average of 5% water savings – a figure we feel falls generously inside our trial average.
Fundamentally, the test demonstrates positive results despite the lack of campaign activity to support it. The experiment does not account for the additional savings made on waste water, or the energy required to heat each shower – perhaps something to add to our next trial, sub-metering permitting.
The cumulative effect is a substantial financial saving over the course of a year, with the possibility of additional savings if used in conjunction with a sustainability campaign within the University. For the Procurement department, ShowerBoB provides quick payback on investment, the cost of supplying the ShowerBoBs was repaid within two to three weeks.
