A full bath tub requires about 70 gallons of water, while taking a five-minute shower uses 10 to 25 gallons. If you’re taking a bath put the stopper in right away and adjust the water as the tub is filling.

Your government hard at work.. Now they’re considering a “redefinition” of showerheads. They want to regulate not only the gallons per minute allowed per shower head (they already do this, it’s 2.5 gallons per minute) but per shower unit. Meaning if you have 1 shower you can only use 2.5 gallons per minute in that shower. If you are lucky enough to have a shower with 2 shower heads or some nice body sprays and a hand shower, this will no longer be allowed unless all the outlets combined use no more than 2.5 gallons per minute. Even if you only use one at a time that won’t work, it will be measured by the total flow of all outlets. I’m all for water conservation but this is ridiculous.

Trees and shrubs have a deeper root system and require longer but less frequent watering than lawns and shallow rooted plants. You can check with your local extension service for advice on the amount and frequency of water needed in your area.
