The average family could save 13,000-plus gallons per year by installing WaterSense labeled showerheads. Since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, they will also save energy.
With a high-efficiency showerhead and a change in how much water you use when you take a shower, you’ll save 63 percent of the energy and water you used before, assuming that a typical family of four uses the shower about 21 times per week and a reduced shower time from eight-plus minutes to five minutes using a 1.5 gallon per minute showerhead.
