Water Conservation

Making the world a better place

Here are 5 easy, cost efficient ways to conserve water!

An obvious one would be do not throw away water.

If you poured too much water for yourself into a glass don't pour it out, use it. Give your plants or pets what's left instead of just wasting it. Enough water is already wasted throughout one day, 100 gallons to be exact.

Install a low-flow toilet and dont flush it more than neccessary.

Statistics show that switching from a standard toilet to a low flow toilet can save thousands of gallons of water per year. A standard toilet uses about 6 gallons per flush vs. a low flow toilet that only uses 1.6 gallons per flush. This would be a great way to save your money and conserve the earths water. Its a win- win deal!

Take shorter showers!!

Try and take 5 to 10 min. showers at the most. At the very least change your shower head with a low flow one. Like the low flow toilets, these regulate water pressure while using a lot less water than the original shower heads. You could reduce your water use by 20 to 60 % by doing this.

Use your dishwasher and clothes washer for only full loads.

Most dish washing company's recommend not doing a pre - rinse to conserve as much water as you can. Your dishwasher and clothes washer should be about full before you turn them on. Its an obvious waste if you start them when they are only half full or if theirs barely anything in them. For partial loads, adjust the water settings to match the size of the load. Also replace old washers, new washers save about 30- 50 % of water and 50% of energy.

Don't run the hose while washing your car!

Clean your car using a bucket of soapy water so your not running water down the street. Use the hose only for filling the bucket up and rinsing the car. This simple way to conserve water can save as much as 150 gallons when washing a car.
