How to Save Water When You Shower
Posted on September 8th, 2016 by BlueMountain
Whether you’re on a hunt to save money on your next bill or do your environment some good, there are many ways to save water. Let’s start with the obvious, something we do on the daily: showering. By finding out how we can save on showering, we can save water and money. We’ve rounded up a few solutions to get you started on achieving this goal:
Make it snappy
One of the more obvious solutions to saving water in the shower is to make yours a quick one. 2.5 gallons of water are used every minute, so just think how much water you can save by cutting five minutes (we’ll do the math: that’s 12.5 gallons).
Most low flow showerheads use 0.5 gallons of water per minute, unlike the typical 2.5. By investing in a low-flow showerhead, you can not only save water, but also take advantage of slightly longer showers!
Grab a sponge
Try this: add warm water to a basin. Grab some soap and a sponge. Lather up with soap and clean what you need to. Then wet the sponge and rinse yourself off. It’s a great way to get all that dirt off which sometimes a shower doesn’t do.
Sometimes it’s the smallest changes that can make a big impact on your environment. At Blue Mountain Plumbing Heating and Cooling, we are dedicated to helping you conserve water and energy.
