Cut Cost and Consumption with WaterSense®
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the average American family of four can use 400 gallons of water a day, and approximately 70% is for indoor use.
- Not surprisingly, most of that water is used in the bathroom, so that's a great place to start your conservation efforts. Installing a low-flow showerhead is easy to do and will save you money on your utility bills.
- A standard showerhead uses at least 2.5 gallons of water per minute (GPM). If you shower for 7 minutes, one standard estimate, you could use up 17.5 gallons of water per shower and roughly 525 gallons per month.
- Compare that to a low-flow showerhead, 2.0 GPM for example, and you can cut that dramatically. A 7-minute shower will use only 14 gallons of water, and not only does a low-flow showerhead reduce water usage, it also reduces the amount of money needed to heat the water!
- Conair® Home offers three showerheads that fall under the requirements of the EPA's WaterSense® program. They all meet WaterSense® EPA criteria and comply with ASME A112.18.1 specifications. And with the price points from $22.99 to $45.99, they pay for themselves almost immediately.
