There’s nothing seasonal about water conservation; it’s a year-round pursuit. And while you’re no doubt doing your part, perhaps you’d like conserve more and save money on your water bill.
Here are a few water-saving measures you might want to put into practice:
- Spend less time in the shower.
- Install water efficient fixtures, like a low-flow showerhead and aerated faucets.
- Replace your toilet with a dual-flush toilet that use only about 1.1 gallons per half flush, and 1.3 gallons for a full flush. Older toilets, by comparison, average between 3 and 5 gallons per flush.
- Run your dishwasher instead of hand-washing dishes, glasses, and all the rest.
- Insulating your pipes with foam will cause water to heat up faster, thus reducing consumption.
- Harvest your excess water. Place a large bucket under the shower head while the water warms up until it’s just right. Then use that water for your plants and other routine chores.
- Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth and shaving.
- Fix water leaks as soon as you spot them.
- Keep a pitcher of cold water in your fridge so the water is just right when you want a cold drink.
