WATER SAVING FIXTURES
SIMPLE CHANGES THAT GO A LONG WAY IN REDUCING WATER CONSUMPTION
Reducing your water use has multiple benefits. In addition to helping to conserve and protect your community’s vital water supplies, saving water also helps you save money and energy. In a country that suffers from water scarcity, it is surprising that water saving fixtures like dual-flush toilets aren’t mandatory. Considering that toilets account for about 30 percent of the water usage in a home, they certainly should be! Showering takes up another 20 percent of the daily water used in a household. Reducing your shower time is a way to save precious water. Or you can install an ultra-low flow showerhead (or you can do both!). Today’s models deliver a good strong water stream. A water aerator or flow restrictor fixed on the existing faucets will additionally curb your water consumption.
