The Joe Biden administration intends to return the rule that limited the supply of water from a household shower to 2.5 gallons (9.5 liters) per minute from one shower watering can. The ban was lifted by the previous head of the White House, Donald Trump, NBC reports.
Initially, the restrictions were adopted in 1992, in 2013 the rules were clarified. Now the entire structure had to pass 9.5 liters per minute, whereas previously the pressure was limited for each shower head. This restriction was lifted when Trump was president. As a result, the pressure of 9.5 liters per minute for each watering can be returned.
According to the 45th American president, the water flow was not strong enough.
вЂњYou take a shower, and the water does not flow. You want to wash your hands вЂ” the water is not coming. What will you do? You will stand in the shower longer, take a shower longer, " Trump explained.
The United States Department of Energy explained the need to cancel the former president's decision to save water and household budgets.
It is expected that little will change in practice since the new shower watering cans are mainly provided for water supply in accordance with the 2013 standard.
Biden began to cancel the rules and decrees introduced by his predecessor immediately after taking office.
In June, he canceled the decree of his predecessor on the TikTok bath.
