Wanting to reduce the utility bill is a conversation we have all had. One way this can be accomplished is by cutting down the water bill. You may be wondering what is a more effective way to do that?
When trying to identify which one conserves more water you have to take into account how long your showers are. A typical bathtub can use approximately 36 gallons of water according to the U.S. Geological Survey. An older shower can use roughly 5 gallons of water a minute. So, after doing the math if your shower is lasting longer than 7 minutes (which is not out of the ordinary) a relaxing bath would use less water.
There are other ways to conserve water. The newer, more efficient low-flow shower heads use about 2 gallons of water per minute. This allows longer shower times without thinking about the water usage.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, investing in water-saving fixtures and appliances can save you more than $380 from the $1,000 spent on water on average each year in the U.S.
