Now is the perfect time to take energy, water, and money-saving action in your home by showering better. The shower is a place where we can wake up, wind down, or clean up after a long day. But did you know it’s also a place where we are wasting water, energy, and money?
It’s true—the average American family uses 30 gallons of water per day just for showering. That’s about 1.2 trillion gallons of water every year in the United States! It also takes energy to heat the water we use to shower. Replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense labeled model can help the average family shower better by reducing its energy and water costs by more than $70 and saving 2,900 gallons of water annually.
Look for the WaterSense Label
In just one year, a WaterSense labeled showerhead can save the average family the amount of water it takes to wash more than 70 loads of laundry and the amount of electricity used to power its home for 13 days!
Like all WaterSense labeled products, showerhead models that earn the WaterSense label are independently certified to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency criteria for water savings and performance. You’ll get the same level of spray force and water coverage you’ve come to expect, which means you really will shower better.
