Quick Tips / Slow Your Flow and Save Some Dough!

money-houseDid you know that average indoor water use in a typical single-family home is 70 gallons per person per day?  In addition to taking shorter showers and turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth and washing your hands, you can make these simple upgrades to easily help conserve water in your home and reduce your water bill:

  • Swap standard bathroom sink faucets which typically flow in excess of 2 gpm (gallons per minute) for “WaterSense” versions that lower the flow to 1.5 gpm-a reduction of over 30%.
  • Change out existing showerheads which tend to flow at 2.2 gpm or more, to a “WaterSense” showerhead which flows at just 1.75 gpm or less.  An average family of four using a low flow showerhead can save approx. 29,900 gallons of water each year.
