Here are a few tried and tested ways that you can save water and save our beautiful planet one step at a time…
Switch to a tankless water heater
Tankless systems provide hot water “on demand” which provides two important benefits. First, the faster the water heats up, the less water you waste. Secondly, you’ll conserve energy as the water is heated on demand.
Low-flow shower head
Conventional shower heads consume 2.5 gallons of water per minute. By switching to a low-flow shower head, the average family of four could save 2,900 gallons of water per year. That’s a massive saving from just changing the shower head!!
Still a relative novelty here in the UK, dual-flush toilets first arrived on the scene in Australia in 1980, and are now commonplace there and throughout other parts of the world. Dual-flush toilets, as the name suggests, have two functions: a half flush for liquid waste and a full flush for solid waste.
Attach aerators to your faucets
A faucet aerator is a simple but effective device that screws onto the end of the faucet and mixes air into the water. That serves to reduce the flow of water while simultaneously increasing the pressure. Most aerators are designed to conserve 2.2 gallons per minute.
Check your water heater temperature setting
At 120 F, your water will be plenty hot for all household needs. At higher temperature settings, you risk scalding while consuming excess energy.
Fix that drip
It’s costing you more and wasting your water!
