Ventura Water’s Waterwise Tip: Save WATER and MONEY in the bath!


  • If you cut your shower time by two minutes and install a low flow showerhead, you’ll use only 2 1/2 gallons of water per minute.  This can save 15 gallons per shower!
  • Turn off your faucet while brushing your teeth can save you 6 gallons of water.  (A bathroom faucet uses 6 gallons per minute).  So wet your brush, turn off the water, brush, then turn on the water to rinse.
  • When shaving, partially fill the sink with water to clean the blade.  This saves 6-12 gallons of water per shave!
  • If you desire a bath.  Fill the tub half full.  A full bath tub uses 36 gallons of water.  This saves 18 gallons of water per bath!
  • Fix faucet leaks.  A steady dripping water leak can waste 15-20 gallons of water PER DAY!
