Water Conservation Tips > In the Bathroom

  • Installing a low-flow showerhead helps save water. It may take getting used to, but after a few showers, you won’t notice the difference in water flow.
  • Did you know that the average shower uses 20 gallons of water, compared to the 40 gallons that’s needed for a bath? Simply swapping your baths for showers could save 2,000 gallons of water a year if you take a five-minute shower every day, or double this amount if you shower every other day.
  • Did you know that the average domestic toilet uses 15 gallons of water per person per day and that’s one third of all water usage? For a water efficient solution, simply install a low-flush toilet and you’ll cut flushing volumes by half.
  • You can check your toilet system for leaks by adding a little vegetable dye to the water in your cistern. If any of the dye appears in the toilet bowl without you flushing, then you know you have a leak that is wasting water. A leaky toilet can waste more than 10,000 gallons of water a year!
  • Consider installing a water-saving system in your house to help you divert water around your home. A common option is to use bathwater or sink run off, rather than clean water to flush the toilet.
  • Don’t leave the faucet running while brushing your teeth or shaving. Get into the habit of turning it off unless you’re actually using it. You will conserve up to 5 gallons daily. Throughout the United States, the daily savings could add up to 1.5 billion gallons-more than is consumed per day across all of New York City.
