    Ok, two people being reasonably frugal with their water, but having a quick shower each a day, how much water would you expect to use in a day? Or putting it another day how long before you would need to top up a 100L tank.
    Thanks
    Paul

    3 days tops from what you suggest.
    I dont shower every day it simply isn't necessary but I do have a generous one alternate days and we use 30 litres between us. Ecocamel shower head (y)

    Does that 100 litres supply the loo as well?

    Showers will use a large proportion of your water. We use flannel washes to extend the time between fill-ups and tend to get three days from 100l for the four of us.

    Do you: -
    When showering, wet yourself then switch off water, soap yourself down, then rinse?
    Do same when washing hair?
    Only wash hair when you shower?
    These methods save a lot of water.

    Two days or three at a stretch, we both show daily at home and have clean clothes each day.We do the same in the motorhome, why compromise.

    Obviously some don't share our preferences, its interesting to see some men and women wearing the same clothes day in, day out. In hot weather get too close and it can makes your eyes water. Yuk.
