Low-flow fixtures cut water usage in half. Meaning if you take a 5-minute shower you can save approximately 4,550 gallons of water each year, or enough to fill a 15-foot aboveground swimming pool. Just imagine if everyone made the switch.

 

Have you installed a low-flow showerhead? What else have you done to save water?
