TIP: Use a low-flow shower head.

You may associate a low-flow showerhead with one that reduces your shower to a frustrating trickle. Thankfully, technologies have improved so that you can enjoy a high pressure shower while saving water at the same time!
Another benefit is that with a low-flow showerhead, you will not only save water, you’ll also save energy! Why? The California Efficiency Partnership says that about 73 percent of the water you use in your shower is hot water, and you use a lot of energy to heat that water for you shower. They go on to say that the use of low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators can reduce your water heating costs by around to 50 percent! That is definitely worth trying out!

The Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve will be a big home water conservation addition to your low flow showerhead! It will get hot water to your shower faster and save water! I installed this thermostatically adjustable recirculation valve under the sink farthest form my water heater and now I have instant hot water throughout my entire condo. It uses no electricity and is pump free, so it creates no noise. It's only $179.95, has a 10-year warranty, and is very easy to install. It only took me 10 minutes. I have had it for 3 years now and am very impressed. I highly recommend this system.
