With the drought that has been pervasive in our area, we thought it might be an interesting idea to explore some helpful water conservation tips. When times like these come upon us, it’s important that the communities come together and share in their part. This is quite the diversion from our normal weekend round up, but water is important. How can we do a better job conserving it? Let’s take a look.
1.) One of the simplest things you can do to cut back your water use is to turn off the sink while you brush your teeth. It might seem simple, but statistics show that most people leave their faucets running while they brush their teeth. Lots of water gets wasted this way, and so if more people shut the faucet off while they brushed their teeth, less water would be wasted.
2.) Cutting down your time in the shower can also play a big part in water conservation. The average ten-minute shower can use up to 30 gallons of water. This is a lot if there is more than one person in your household taking long showers. If you can manage to cut your shower time down to two minutes, there will be a drastic amount of water saved.
3.) When it comes to drinking water, fill up a jug from your faucet and leave it in the fridge. You’ll be more apt to use the nice, cold water rather than returning to the faucet multiple times a day where turning it on and off can create a heavy drip flow.
These are just a few water conservations tips that everyone can do without disrupting the flow of their day-to-day lives. It may be small, but the more people that participate can add up, and that is where differences can be made. We hope you find these tips useful and are able to make an impact with your conservation efforts. As always, have a great weekend.
