There are likely to be ways you can reduce the amount of water you use every day. The bathroom and kitchen are the two areas where you can make the biggest changes. These tips will help you save money and protect the environment.


Do not touch the faucets! Only run the water when absolutely necessary. This means that you should turn off the water while you brush your teeth.

Go low-flow. The original low-flow shower heads left much to be desired. However, the newer state of the art models offer a more satisfying experience with a fraction of their flow rate. This is a simple DIY upgrade that only requires a few tools. A low-flow bathroom faucet can be replaced.

There are fewer baths if there are more showers. The average bath takes 30 gallons to fill, while a 10-minute shower with a standard head requires 25 gallons. A ten-minute, low-flow shower head will require 20 gallons to fill.

In the Kitchen

The dishwasher is a great option. Hand washing dishes takes more effort and requires more water. To start the cycle, wait until you have finished washing all dishes.

Upgrade to a water-smart dishwashing machine Shop with water efficiency in your mind if it is near time to replace the existing model. To save money, you can also choose one that’s energy efficient.

The garbage disposal is not your friend, but the garbage can. Although the disposal is great for certain smelly items that you need to get rid of quickly, it will still require water. It can be put in the compost or trash, and the water will be saved. It’s a good first step to take the time to consider how much water you use. You don’t even need running water. It’s off.
