Re your amount of shower water supply problem.  We solved this by switching the shower head to this one;

http://www.penguineng.com/TapsShowers/Showers-ElbowShowerHeads/D91PenguinTap.php

As well as giving you full stream and shower head modes, there is a slide button to switch the flow from full flow to a low flow setting, but keeping the same temperature of the water.  So you can set the taps to give you the correct temperature, pour water all over yourself, switch to the low flow setting, putting the shower head in the basin with the plug in.  You can then wash all over with soap etc, then switch the flow back to full flow to rinse off, also using the small amount of warm water that has accumulated in the basin.  

We will then put it back on to the low flow setting whilst one person hops out of the shower and the other hops in, so the second person does not have to waste water with the bother of adjusting the temperature.  

Thus you considerably decrease the amount of water used for a shower.   It seems such an obvious solution, that I wonder why this head is not a common fitting.

Thanks for this. This season we have been experimenting with a shower head designed for caravaners which reduces the amount of water through the head but still provides a comfortable shower. However, I like the idea of being able to reduce the amount of water whilst taking a shower without risking changing the temperature. It’s not until you shower on a boat that you appreciate just how much water is used and can be wasted. I will certainly investigate this particular shower head.
