October is Shower Better Month

Published on October 01, 2020


 It doesn’t have to be difficult to get a better bathroom. Sometimes a little change can lead to big savings – on water and utility bills.

Showering is one of the leading ways we use water in the home, accounting for nearly 17% of residential indoor water use. For the average family, that adds up to nearly 40 gallons per day. That's nearly 1.2 trillion gallons of water used in the United States annually just for showering, or enough to supply the water needs of New York and New Jersey for a year.

By retrofitting a shower with a WaterSense-labeled showerhead, you can save a considerable amount of this water. WaterSense Bath Hack #1 shows how to replace a showerhead.

WaterSense-labeled showerheads are available in a range of designs and prices, so you can find the model that suits your style.
