#notmanypeopleknowthat - power showers aren't more efficient than baths

from a bbc report by mark kinver on a unilever study quoting a dr hilde hendrckx - in summary

apparently the average shower lasts 8 minutes using 80% of the hot water an average bath uses

and with a power shower twice as much water as an average bath is used

top tip to combat this "If you are partial to singing in the shower, pick a short pop classic to shower to; and when lathering up think about turning the flow off until you are ready to rinse."

PS Dr Hendrickx acknowledged that the survey was not representative of the entire nation

and not many people know that
