How To Conserve Water For Earth Day
Posted on April 20th, 2018 by Dean's Plumbing
Did you know that conventional shower heads pump out nearly 5 gallons of water per minute? That one single bath uses between 35 and 50 gallons of water? How about the fact that you can go through around 6 gallons of water every time you brush your teeth?!
Saying that you’re going to cut down on water usage is nice, but how can you do it? If you take an active approach to cutting down on water usage during your normal daily activities you can make a significant impact on the planet. And luckily, we have a few small adjustments you can make in the bathroom to help out!
5 Ways To Conserve Water In Your Bathroom
1. Place a bucket in your shower to catch the water while you wait for it to heat up. Use the bucket water to keep your plants hydrated or to clean your dishes.
2. Consider having a low-flow shower head installed. Compared to a conventional head, these products can use half the amount of water.
3. Cut down on the amount of time you spend in the shower. Pick one or two of your favorite songs, and when they are over, it’s time to get out!
4. Turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth or shave your face.
5. Look for leaky faucets or pipes around your home. You can lose 20 gallons of water per day from a single leaky faucet.
