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).

    Save money by paying less on your electric bill. BGE and Pepco residential or Business customers can save 10-25% on your Electric Bill. Keep your same electric company. We supply the power and cheaper. Sign up is free, no contracts, no cancellation fees, no switching fees and a fixed rate. Takes 2 minutes saves you hundreds.

    Quick Showers are a huge money saver. Each member of our family gets in and out in 5-7 min’s. Reheating the hot water tank constantly adds up fast.
