    We keep a 5 gallon bucket near the shower. When the plants need watering we put the bucket under the faucet and capture the cold water that streams out while we wait for the hot water to arrive. We do this winter and summer. In the summer we capture the water everyday and water outdoor plants. We live in an area where water is precious and this takes the guilt out of watering plants.

      Love it! We do the shower bucket in our house, too.

    I kind of went all out- designed a system in which all the upstairs bathtub water was diverted to flush the downstairs water. Worked great, but the wife thought it looked too clumsy, made me put it back to normal. I still have the pipes in the walls to get it back if I wanted but I don’t want to risk my marriage, LOL!

    It worked great, but if I were to do it over again, I would put more emphasis on a filtration system- on hot humid days, it had the potential to smell.
