# Thread: How much does taking a shower cost?

1. ## How much does taking a shower cost?

I've always wondered how much it would cost in water/electrical/etc bills a month to take say a 10 minute shower. A lot of fuss is made over how expensive long showers are, but is it really worth fussing about?

2. bout 350

3. My calculations lead me to believe bout 350 dollars. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

4. but at the cost of wat-er?

5. Pre cal major here. Bout \$3.50

6. OP I won a tony in my works in hydronomics, I can confirm it costs "bout three fiddy"

7. Lol you guys are so funny I bet 3.50 is going to be a meme soon

9. all you need is to wash your balls and youre set.

10. its worth fussing about when you pay your own bills

11. i worked with the higgs particle. its about \$.350

12. I pay the bills in a 4 person household OP and I can confirm it's right around 350.

13. roughly three fifty

14. i dont pay the bills around here, but i think the water bill is 80 bucks every 2 months?

so...probably around 2 bucks every time you shower, and the rest for dish/clothe washing.

15. Costs me nothing, water and oil is free for me, u mad?

16. the last time i checked mine was near 350

so i asked my friend and his was also about 350

17. id say bout tree fiddy OP

18. sink installer here. Based on my years in sink repair and selling sink accessories i would have to say it cost roughly \$350 a year give or take \$3.50...

19. Ive calculated the velocity at which the water leaves the shower head of a regular fitted shower head. My calculations have led me to believe that the price is most definitely bout tree fiddy.

Cold Shower
in nyc by code a shower head only allowed to flow 2.0 gpm. so 10 min shower you will use 20 gallons of water.
in nyc 748 gallons of water is \$2.02. so a 10 min colder shower will cost .05\$.

21. about \$3 every 50 seconds..

22. More than you can afford pal. Ferrari.

23. In Quebec Canada, it's about 6-10 cents. Of course we have very cheap water & electricity here.

24. For a 10 minute shower....probably like 25 cents.

25. Bathroom renovation specialist and professional plumber checking in.

Over the years I've gathered a large amount of customer which I've had the fortune of being able to model using excel.

As of the 13/07/12 the most accurate cost per shower I have (assuming a 60:40 hot-to-cold split and 10 minute duration) is \$3.49.

'bout \$3.50

With the conversion rate by my calculations a single shower looks to be about tree fiddy dollars.

I'm gonna call bull on that. When I come home from school during the summer, my parents water bill increases by \$40ish. Granted not all of that is because of showers, but come on. No way in hell do showers cost .05

29. On my bill, electricity for using hot water is listed as 'off peak' and going off that, the avg 10min shower costs about \$3.50
