How can you save water at home? These three ways to save water will help you keep your household more eco-friendly and your wallet fuller than ever before. Read on to learn more.
1) Replace your old showerhead
You might not think about it, but you use a lot of water every time you take a shower. According to several studies showering accounts for anywhere between 16-30% of our daily water consumption—that’s more than any other activity we perform. If you want to save money on your next water bill and help preserve our environment at home, consider replacing your old showerhead with a new eco-friendly model such as those that disperse the water with air.
2) Install a dual-flush toilet
One of the easiest ways to save water is by installing a dual-flush toilet. They use 7L or less per flush, so they can reduce your household’s water consumption significantly over time. Better yet, most new toilets come with an Energy Star certification and require less than 27L per flush.
3) Weatherproof your home
If you’re looking for a way to save money, think about taking steps to weatherproof your home. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimate that 8–10% of water in our homes can be attributed to leaks and breaks. A good place to start is checking your toilets and taps—you may be surprised by how much water you can save simply by installing a new tap or repairing an old leaky one.
