Do You Have  WaterSense  Showerheads?

EPA Water Use ChartDid you know that showering is one of the leading ways we use water in the home, accounting for nearly 17 percent of residential indoor water use? Statistics tell us that for the average family, that adds up to nearly 40 gallons per day. Based on those new figures, it calculates out to 1.2 trillion gallons of water used in the United States annually just for showering.  Put in perspective, that would be enough to supply the water needs of New York and New Jersey for a year! Ok, so now that we have your attention, did you realize that by retrofitting your showerheads with WaterSense labeled models, you can save a considerable amount of this water?

Shower With Power To Save

The EPA saysa that standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons of water per minute (gpm). Water–saving showerheads that earn the WaterSense label, have strict requirements. Those requirements say that in order to have the WaterSense label, they must demonstrate that they use no more than 2.0 gpm. That same WaterSense label also ensures that these products provide a satisfactory shower that is equal to or better than conventional showerheads on the market. How did this all come about you may ask; the EPA worked with a variety of stakeholders—including consumers who tested various showerheads—to develop criteria for water coverage and spray intensity. The end result is all products bearing the WaterSense label—including water–efficient showerheads—must be independently certified to ensure they meet EPA water efficiency and performance criteria.

WaterSense Savings

Water–efficient showerheads, such as low-flow and restricted-flow showerheads, are an excellent way to reduce household water use. That said, what can you do? The average family could save 2,900 gallons per year by installing WaterSense labeled showerheads, and that's a great place to begin. Since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, they will also save energy. In fact, the average family could save more than 370 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, enough to power a house for 13 days.

If you do your part and begin that process of replacing your non-WaterSense showerheads nationally it will make a big difference. The EPA says that given today's standards, on a national scale, if every home in the United States installed WaterSense labeled showerheads, we could save more than $2.2 billion in water utility bills and more than 260 billion gallons of water annually. In addition, we could avoid about $2.6 billion in energy costs for heating water. This is fantastic!

WaterSense Label ShowerheadsLook For The WaterSense Label!

Whether you are replacing an older, inefficient showerhead or simply looking for ways to reduce water use and utility bills in your home, look for the WaterSense label on showerheads along with faucets, faucet accessories, and toilets to help you identify models that save water and perform well. In many areas, utilities offer rebates and vouchers that can lower the price of a WaterSense labeled showerhead.

The day that my new tankless water heater was installed went just as planned. The plumbers from Atlas did an exceptional job from start to finish and the owner visited twice to assist and to ensure that all was done correctly.
