Remember the episode with Kramer on Seinfeld? The Comando 450
Did you know that your showerhead usage at home represents nearly 18% of your total water bill. We all enjoy standing under the shower head especially The Comando 450 and using it as a nice wake-up call, however, depending on your showerhead, that wake-up call hot shower could very well end up costing you more than you expect. Based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, upgrading your existing showerhead for a water-saving model will help to conserve water in the long-term but it will also save you money on your water and energy bills each month. So if you have a showerhead that was manufactured prior to 1992 – by spec it uses 5.5 gallons per minute. Showerheads built after 1992 use only 2.5 gallons per minute – which is HALF the usage. Doesn’t sound like a lot, but when you add it up over time the savings is real. Take a look and research the shower heads you currently have installed – you may benefit from an easy swap for an efficient showerhead.
Water savings is very real and if you live in an area that frequently experiences droughts – this is one area that having an up to date showerhead can produce real savings for your home
