Showering: Smarter, Better, Cleaner

A discussion in honor of the EPA’s #ShowerBetter Month hosted and sponsored by Ferguson.


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is encouraging consumers to “shower better” this October by considering WaterSense® labeled showerheads as a way to save water and energy while ensuring a satisfying shower. The shower is where many Americans wake up in the morning or unwind after a long day, but it can also be a place where water, energy and money are sent down the drain. By replacing just one showerhead with a WaterSense® labeled model, EPA estimates the average family can save 2,900 gal 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.
