Save your water when warming up the shower

Matt Berger Nov 29, 2010

Depending on your waterflow, you waste between five gallons and 10 gallons of water each time you wait for the shower to warm up. While waiting for the water to get warm before getting in, catch the water in a bucket to be used for cooking, watering plants or drinking later.
