|Use Your WaterSense|
By making just a few small changes to your daily routine, you can save a significant amount of water, which will help you save money and preserve water supplies for future generations. Water-efficient plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems provide the same performance and quality you've come to expect, but with the added benefit of water savings. The WaterSense label will help you identify high-efficiency products and programs for certified irrigation professionals.
Along with using WaterSense labeled products, adopt the following water-efficient practices to save money and protect the environment.
Fix That Leak!
Challenge: Leaky faucets that drip at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water each year.
Challenge: A leaky toilet can waste about 200 gallons of water every day.
Challenge: A full bath tub requires about 70 gallons of water, while taking a five-minute shower uses 10 to 25 gallons.
Turn It Off!
Challenge: The average bathroom faucet flows at a rate of two gallons per minute.
Challenge: The typical single-family suburban household uses at least 30 percent of their water outdoors for irrigation. Some experts estimate that more than 50 percent of landscape water use goes to waste due to evaporation or runoff caused by overwatering.
Make It a Full Load
Challenge: The average washing machine uses about 41 gallons of water per load.
Don't Flush Your Money Down the Drain!
Challenge: If your toilet is from 1992 or earlier, you probably have an inefficient model that uses at least 3.5 gallons per flush.
