One way to save water in your home is to check your faucets and pipes for leaks, because even a small drip could waste up to 20 gallons of water a day. Another thing you can do is install a low-flow shower head, which uses less than 2.5 gallons of water per minute, where longer high-flow showers use up to 10 gallons per minute. More practical and easier ways to save water is to simply turn off the water after you wet your toothbrush or if you are washing vegetables. Keeping the water running the whole time is usually unecessary and wastes a lot of water.
There are so many ways that you can save water in your house. When you are washing dishes by hand or brushing your teeth don’t keep the water running. Only run the washing machine and dishwasher when they are totally full – that can save up to 1000 gallons per month. Collect the water from when you rinse off fruits and veggies and use it to water household plants. The link that I have attached lists 100 ways to save water. Check it out!
All of the faucets in my house are water efficient, which has saved a lot of money each month. Another tip is to make sure you don’t use the toilet as a garbage can. A lot of times people will flush tissues or trash down their toilet, which not only wastes water, but it can also create problems in the water supply. An example would be flushing prescription pulls down the toilet.
Another way to save water is to take shorter (or fewer) showers. Showers use up about 2.5 gallons of water every minute, so (assuming you shower daily) you could reduce water consumption by 912.5 gallons a year just by shaving one minute off your shower time. Installing a low flow shower head is also a great way to cut down on water use in the shower.
