Don’t Forget to Turn Off Your Water!View Post
Did you know that 17% of the water you use indoors is from your shower?
In an effort to help you save money and water, here are a few suggestions on how to conserve water in your bathroom.
Replace Old Showerheads- Consider replacing your older showerheads have a flow of more than 2.5 gallons per minute with showerheads that have a flow of 2.0 to 2.5 gallons per minute. While it may cost you a little money up front, water conservation can really save you money in the long run.
Take Shorter Showers- even a one or two minute shorter shower can save you up to 700 gallons of water a month.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat- Consider turning the water off while you soap up and wash your hair, turning it back on to rinse off.
Bathtime Is Treat-Time- Think of “taking a bath” as an occasional treat as the average bath uses 35-50 gallons of water as compared to a 10-minute shower using only 25 gallons of water.
