Earth Month Tip: Use low-flow WaterSense showerheads

2014 April 12

By replacing just one showerhead with a WaterSense labeled model, EPA estimates the average family can save 2,900 gallons of water, the amount of electricity needed to power its home for 13 days, and more than $70 in energy and water costs every year.

Changes we make at home can make a huge difference. If every home in the United States replaced existing showerheads with WaterSense labeled models, we could conserve more than 260 billion gallons of water and save nearly $5.1 billion in water and energy costs across the country annually while preventing carbon pollution.

    Perhaps you want to remove the dollar sign, since it’s 260 billion gallons, not 260 billion gallon-dollars.
