Trump urges change in shower regulations
The change in regulations comes after comments from Trump last month at a White House event on rolling back regulations. He said he believed water does not come out fast enough from fixtures.
“So what do you do? You just stand there longer or you take a shower longer? Because my hair – I don’t know about you, but it has to be perfect,” he said.
Last year, President Trump said environmental regulators were looking at sinks, faucets, and toilets to change rules meant to conserve water and fuel that heats it.
“People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once,” Trump told a meeting of small business leaders at the White House.
Furthermore, consumer groups decried the plan, saying current rules saved consumers money by conserving water and fuel.
