Water-efficient showerheads are good for the environment and your water bill. We've gathered water usage results and product information from Australia's Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) database, as well as popular retailers, to help you find a water-saving showerhead that isn't a total drip.

Our comparison table shows you:

  • the showerheads that have the best water efficiency, including flow rate in litres per minute
  • WELS star rating results
  • mount types, including rail, wall, arm and ceiling
  • combination models with dual handheld and fixed mounts
  • additional functions
  • where to buy showerheads exclusive to certain retailers.

Specifications include the number of additional functions the showerhead has, whether the shower uses an arm or hose, whether the arm is adjustable, and where the flow control is located.

In Australia, water fixtures and some appliances must be registered and assessed for their water usage efficiency. As well as a score of one to four stars, the showerhead must also clearly display the flow rate per minute. The higher the rating, the more water-efficient it is. For more information, and to search the database, go to waterrating.gov.au.

List of brands we tested in this review.

    Price

    Expand to view more details.

    The recommended retail price (RRP) as supplied by the manufacturer. We found some significant price differences for some showerheads depending on the retailer, so it really pays to shop around. You can also save money by opting for a standard colour such as chrome rather than a fancy finish like gold or brush brass.

    Mount type

    Expand to view more details.

    The type of mount used to affix the showerhead to the wall or ceiling. Manufacturers and retailers often use the terms 'arm mount' and 'wall mount' interchangeably, despite the differences.

      Handheld

      Expand to view more details.

      Most handheld showerheads sit in a cradle and can also function similarly to non-handheld ones.

        Twin (combination) shower

        Expand to view more details.

        Twin or dual showerheads (also known as a combination mount) are two showerheads in the one unit, typically one fixed and one handheld. They may also come with a rail mount for the handheld unit.

          Expand to view more details.

          This is based directly on the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme and scored out of four stars. For more information about the WELS scheme, go to waterrating.gov.au.
