You can buy a “pause” button for your shower for $5 at Home Depot or Lowes. It’s just a little 1″ adapter that goes between your shower head pipe and the shower head. You press the plunger on one side to pause, and then the other side to resume. Makes taking a shower less of a water waste.
Living in Texas, during this drought, I heard an excellent idea to conserve water. While taking your shower, place a 5-gallon bucket (readily available at any home improvement store) in the tub with you, right by the drain. As you shower, some of the water will end up in the bucket, instead of going down the drain.
Now use that recycled water to water your plants! Pretty much a poor man’s gray water system.
