Reducing your water consumption, especially while you are home significantly more, during stay-at-home orders, is increasingly important! Eliminating water waste will not only decrease monthly water costs, but it will also make a positive impact on the environment. That’s why we here at Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Electrical are sharing water-saving tips with you all today!
So, how do you reduce water consumption? Here are some ingenious products that can help you achieve your water-saving goals:
Toilets are the biggest consumer of water in your home. That’s why installing a low-flow toilet, or a dual-flush option, will quickly prove essential to saving water. Low-flow models use the least amount of water possible to accomplish waste removal. Consider changing out your toilets to low-flow model and start making a difference.
A standard showerhead uses 2.5 gallons of water per minute. Low-flow, water-efficient, fixtures reduce water use by 50%, only releasing, at most, 1.5 gallons of water per minute. As a result, low-flow showerheads won’t wash away your money on water bills. These fixtures save, on average, up to 2,000 gallons of water per year! Low-flow showerheads come in several designs and will be able to suit any aesthetic. From hand showers to rain showerheads, you won’t be disappointed with your new, eco-friendly device.
A rainwater tank will store runoff water that drains from your roof into your gutters. This water can be repurposed to water your plants, lawn, and flowerbeds. Recycling your water is sure to save you, as you won’t have to use fresh water to maintain your lawn.
Always remember to schedule regular plumbing maintenance, as your systems are most efficient when well-kept. For your plumbing needs, contact Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical at 717-207-8198. We are here to help you start saving, today!
