Do you leave the tap on when you brush your teeth?

How farís the Ďconserve waterí message reached? When brushing your teeth, do you only use enough water to wet the brush, or keep the tap streaming throughout? Are those with water meters more likely to turn it off? (see the Water Bills cost cutting guide to find out if you can save with a meter).

Which of these is closest to your situation?
