Installing low-flow shower heads can help save water from the shower – and next time your home’s washer or toilet needs to be replaced, you can select a more energy-efficient model. Checking for and eliminating leaks around the household is an even easier way to save water: leaks account for about 13% of water use in an average home. Finally, if you’re not ready to make major replacements of water-intensive appliances, simple behavior changes can save a lot of water each day. Consider taking shorter showers, wearing an article of clothing a few times before washing it, and maybe even flushing the toilet only every other time you use it.
