The 90-Day Plan: DAY 12

DAY 12

Generally, showers flow between 2-3.5 GPM and one shower can use 20-40 gallons of water.  An easy way to save water is to TAKE A QUICK SHOWER.  By reducing time in the shower by only a minute or two, you will save hundreds of gallons of water every month.  Showers tend to use less water than baths; if you take a bath, place the stopper in first and let the water heat as it fills.

Challenge:  If you were to add an efficient showerhead, how long would it take for the savings to pay for itself?
