The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that you spend about 8-10 gallons when you take a 4-5 minute shower. Substitute baths for showers. Skip showers when you do not feel dirty or use alternative ways to clean up – such as using dry bathing shampoo or hygienic clothing.
Get faucets, showerheads, and toilets that help conserve water. We are talking about low-flow toilets, auto-detect faucets that shut off automatically, and showerheads with a shut-off valve to turn on or shut off mid-shower.
Water pressure controls the speed at which your water flows from the faucet or showerhead. If the pressure is too high, you may waste several gallons of water as you adjust to the right one. Adjust the water pressure to your liking to prevent wastage when the pressure is too high.
Whenever we step into the shower, we waste several precious seconds as the water warms up. We let the water drain away without a second thought. The wasted water may not seem much but the wastage becomes considerable over time.
