Donna, in response to your question. The average bathtub holds about 70 gallons of water, while taking a 5-minute shower uses about 10 to 25 gallons.

I do not use my garden/yard hose if the temperature is predicted to be over 90 degrees because the watering wouldn’t do any good at that temp anyway. I hand wash my dishes because I do not have a dishwasher, but I use a dishpan to rinse with instead of constantly turning the water on. But, I thought a small tub of water was more efficient than even a short shower–can you tell me the numbers on that tip?

Thanks for the other tips.
