    SO I timed the boy in the shower this morning - 13 minutes.
    After saying over and over, get out, be quicker, etc etc it just isnt working - if im not at home he'd stay in for longer!

    So, my thoughts, a pull switch with a timer, sitting between the isolator (which is on all the time) and the shower unit.

    Cant seem to see any timed isolator pull switches anywhere

    You are becoming irate over something that will not continue for long, have you forgotten when you were his age? Give the lad some slack.
    seneca and KIAB like this.

    £40 a month showering one guy, there is a house full of us. 13 minutes is far too long

    Don't think it is that bad ... say 1/4 hour in a 10kW shower is 2.5 kWh. Which costs around 35p. So, one shower a day or 30 showers per month would be about £10. Maybe you should ask why he need a long shower every day.

    ADHD , concentration issues. Literally need to spell everything out fo rhima nd set reminders (heating,lighting, etc etc.). So, this is a reminder device really to be done and dusted when we go off to work and cant prompt
