Power Shower Challenge Reply

Can you shower in two minutes or less? Sound Easy? Well keep me updated. For every shower you do, I’ll do the same. I must say, I might have a slight advantage.  While serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom, this was a common practice when we were able to take showers. So support our Marines, Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen currently serving overseas, they’re doing the same, but not by choice.

In turn, a standard shower head has a flow rate if 2.5 gallons per minute.  Thus, a ten minute shower uses 25 gallons of water, or 9,125 gallons per year.  Wow! That’s not even including toilets, faucets, dish washing, laundry, and lawn care. Calculate your water usage at Tampa Florida Municipal Government.

The art of the power shower:

  • Rinse for 30 seconds, water off
  • Soap and Shampoo
  • Rinse for 30 seconds, water off
  • Conditioner and Face Wash
  • Rinse for 60 seconds, water off

It’s great for camping too, just be sure to use biodegradable soap.  Although simple, you can also relate this concept to the business environment.  When you stream line basic efficiencies, costs are reduced.  Try implementing into daily activities; you’ll be amazed at the long term results.
