A bath normally takes around 150 to 180 liters of water. As compared to this, a 10-minute shower will take around 95 liters. You can even implement customized setting to your bathroom amenities to help with this process. Most of the Neelkanth Group real estate projects allows residents to incorporate their own selection of amenities. In this way, you can opt for a low-flow shower head, which will help shorten showers in a way. However, if you are planning for a long wash, a shower may not be your most viable choice.

Although showering may seem like the largest personal water usage in the house, it is not. Toilet flushing comprises of over 26% of total water usage.

In addition to this, you can reduce water by placing one liter filled bottle in the tank, thus tricking your toilet into using less water.
