Обещание “showerpower”

"I will renew our pledge to save water by limiting all our showers to 4 minutes and to catch the overflow in a bucket. We will reuse this water on the garden, but only if 50 people will try their best to do the same."

Congratulations to everyone who signed up to our pledge in january - we hope you enjoyed saving water and you will sign up again. We found we not only reduced our water bill dramatically but were able to keep our garden alive with the grey water we saved. Welcome to new signers. Please tell your friends about our pledge.

Обещание закрыто, так как достигнута дата его окончания.

  • If it's not a silly question, what are the practicalities of catching the overflow water in a bucket? Do you just stick a plug in the plughole and scoop up the water afterwards, or is there an obvious way to do it that I've missed?

  • Hi Tim - thanks for your question.

    - what I do is place the bucket in the shower over the plughole before I turn the shower on.
    This means you catch the water as the shower warms up.

    As I am showering I find there is enough room for both me and the bucket - with a 4 minute shower I find the bucket catches between 5 - 10 litres of water.

    With this in mind I figure that if 50 people save 5 litres of water per day for the next 3 months this will be 21, 000 litres that can be reused - over a year this would be 84,000 litres.
  • I usually have a bath, so whenever I have the luxury of a shower, it'll be hard to limit it to just four minutes. I got the water co. to fit a water meter and since then, we've been using the bath-water to flush the loo.
    Suggestion - If you replace your shower-head with a new water-saving one, can you shower for an extra two minutes?
