Your commitment will be added to Australia's Daily Water Saving Tally (seen top right of this web site) once you click the link sent to you via your e-mail address.

Should you wish to change your commitment, simply do the survey again. VERY IMPORTANT - you need to ensure you submit your original times before any cutbacks. When you are satisfied with the calculation, click the "Commit to Savings" button. When the signup page appears, rather than typing in your details again, just click "login here!!" (in red) and type in your e-mail address and the password that we e-mailed to you when you made your original commitment and click the submit button.

Water Usage Pie Chart

It has been estimated that 29% of water usage in the average Australian home is used in the shower. This rates higher than watering the garden! The purpose of this web site is to get Australians who live in areas where water conservation has become an issue to make a commitment to cutting down their showering time. :-)

Despite the name of this website, participants are not expected to cut their shower times down to one minute - this is just considered the ultimate. All cutbacks are good and even if it ends up that some participants are only contributing a few litres to Australia's Daily Water Saving Tally, it is still a contribution and worth making.

To be a part of this water conservation effort, please complete the survey as seen left regarding your personal showering details. Children are encouraged to participate preferably with adult supervision. (See Education on how teachers can use this web site as an educational tool for children.) Multiple family members may do this survey under the one e-mail address – however, any household members with the same name and e-mail address will have to create a nickname for one of the members.

If you have already cut down your showering time and wish to participate in this survey, simply submit your past showering times and submit the cutbacks you have made as
your new showering time.

Calculations are based on the estimate that a high flow showerhead delivers about 20 litres of water per minute and a low flow showerhead delivers about 10.
