Take 10-Minute Showers To Save Money

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 10-minute shower can use less water than a full bath.

Mary Bubala reports with a low-flow shower head, a 10-minute shower will use about 25 gallons of water, saving you five gallons of water over a typical bath.

A new shower head will also save energy– up to $145 each year on electricity– beating out both the bath and an old-fashioned shower head.

    Actually, if I took a 10-minute shower, it would double my water use (mine are usually just less than 5 minutes…mostly because I have a crew-cut).
