Recently released in Australia, Oxijet is a shower nozzle that creates air bubbles that make your shower feel A-MAZ-ING, while at the same time cutting your water use by up to half. It was developed by New Zealand company Felton, with the expert input of our fluids specialists.
You can read more about it in our blog post from last week or check out the vid below.
Well, today we’re feeling a bit bubbly ourselves and have a handful of Oxijet nozzles to give away. All you need to do is leave your best (or most creative) water saving tip in the comments field below. Our favourite respondents will be rewarded with their very own Oxijet nozzle.
Update Thursday 7 February: This competition is now closed. Thanks for all your fantastic tips. We’ll be announcing our water-wise winners later today.

Leave a watering can in the shower if you’re game. Come the end of the week you’ll have enough water to feed your hungry plants.

After boiling potatos or rice, pour the water over weeds in your garden to act as a natural weed killer.

While you still have your gum boots on from chasing the odd sheep around the back block (like all good Kiwis) have your shower then tip the gum boots over the pot plants when finished!

When I had my bathroom renovated, hoses from the shower and bath were attached to the drains that led to a small barrell outside. As this filled, a pump placed in the bottom of the barrell would pump the water through a hose onto garden beds. The hose could be easily moved around to water different parts of the garden. Small holes poked in the hose meant a large area would be watered.
