Switch and Save: Shower Better

Showering is one of the leading ways Americans use water in the home, accounting for nearly 17% of indoor water use.

Tip: Fall into a better morning routine with a shower that saves energy, water, and money. By switching to a WaterSense labeled showerhead, the average family can save the amount of water it takes to wash 71 loads of laundry, the electricity needed to power a home for 13 days, and more than $70 every year.
