Stale Water Is Downside To Water Conservation And May Offset Benefits 

A study out from the American Chemical Society says you should run your water for a while before using it – which goes against everything people say about wasting water – and they blame all the reduced-flush toilets, low-flow showerheads and other water-saving green technologies that’s making our water “stale” while it sits in our pipes.
