Saving water inside your home can save money on your water not to mention your power
Kitchen and bathroom faucets consume about 16 percent of the water used inside your
home. Installing efficient faucet aerators can reduce faucet water use by 50 percent.
Use the Dishwasher
Dishwashers can be more efficient than hand washing. One can save up to 15 gallons
per load by running the dishwasher. Only run the dishwasher when it's full and use
the water level settings for the most efficient run.
Laundry consumes about 21 percent of water used inside the home. Each load of laundry
uses between 27 and 54 gallons of water. Purchase a high-efficiency washing machine
to reduce water and energy use up to 50 percent. If you can't afford a new machine,
make sure you wash only full loads.
Toilets consume about 27 percent of the water used inside the home. You can save
water by checking for leaks and installing a fill cycle diverter or upgrading to
a high-efficiency toilet.
