I always turn off the water because water is an important resource that we shouldn't waste. It's not so save money (how mauch money can you save by turning off the water when you brush your teeth???), but I belive it's a shame to waste water when the're millions on this planet that suffer from thirst!

Yes I sure do leave the water on when I brush my teeth. To be honest I always thought most people did.

No Way we turn it off. It too precious at the moment to leave the tap running. Your supposed to brush your teeth for 2 minutes so add that up and too much water will be wasted.

I always turn it off. Though in my country we have so much water, but it's wasting the water.

No I do not leave the water running. It wastes a lot of water. And I would not recommend anybody to leave their taps running while brushing their teeth.

Yes I do so the Paste goes straight down the Plug hole and doesn't get stuck on the Sink and so I can rinse my Toothbrush in between cleaning
