WaterSense 'Shower Better Month' Encourages Water, Energy Savings

Replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense-labeled model can save 4 gal of water each shower

WaterSense Shower Better Month October 2014

October is Energy Action Month. By taking action to save water, you also will save the energy that is used to heat and deliver it to your tub, tap or shower. That is why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program declared October "Shower Better Month." Most indoor water use happens in the bathroom, and showers can account for up to 17% of indoor water use. WaterSense-labeled showerheads are independently certified for efficiency and performance for spray force and water coverage. Replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense-labeled model can save 4 gal of water every time you shower. Annually, the average family can save 2,900 gal of water and reduce its water and energy costs by more than $70 by making the switch.
