This is one part of a new weekly feature in Home & Garden, highlighting ways residents can save water.
• Don’t get “soaked” in the shower. Instead, install a low-flow showerhead. These showerheads are super-easy to install (usually in under 5 minutes) and save water every time you shower. For a typical Sacramento family, that adds up to 800 gallons a month.
Over a year, those savings could top 9,600 gallons – and that’s without taking super-short showers. Imagine all that water not going down the drain.
