When taking a shower..

do you leave the water on the entire time or turn it on and off between washing to help save water?

  • We have a well, so we are careful about water use. In the winter I am too cold to turn the shower on and off. But in the summer I lather up with the water off and then rinse. It not only saves water, but it keeps some moisture out of the house. We pay for air conditioning that dehumidifies, but a long shower throws a lot of humidity out. In the winter the moisture in the air is a good thing, but in the summer it works against the AC.

  • I leave it on, but after I rinse off I plug the drain, so my son can play in the water.
