Water saving

I realized, it take's a long time, untill hot water arrive's at showerfaucet, even worse in kitchen,
While we have no water hook up in Germany, we ALLWAYS need to "dry-camp" and "saving freshwater" is an important thing. (80Gallons is "nothing" with two adults..!)
I decided to install a shorter line in pex from bathroom faucet to shower, hidden under carpet, on the "short way" by crossing aisle in bedroom ,
Anybody any idea?

I fill the teapot from the shower head. By the time hot water comes out the teapot is full.

One of the best ways to save water is, don't shower. Take a hospital-style sponge bath instead. You still get clean, but with much less water.

And besides, you don't have to give yourself a sponge bath; giving each other a sponge bath is good, clean fun!

Take a long trip down to the South Atlantic with a few of your mates and have cold, very, very cold sea water showers using sailors soap and see how much into water conservation you get.

Per Mare, Per Terram and may all your campaigns be successful.
