INFOGRAPHIC: How to Save Water When It CountsCalifornia isn’t the only place where saving water has become a necessity. There are many places where water has become a scarce resource. It’s important not to take water for granted just because it “seems” readily available. There are little things that you can start doing that can make a big impact when it comes to saving water.
- Low-flush toilets can save a lot of water…350 gallons a week to be exact! They use significantly less water than a full-flush toilet, but still get the job done!
- Turn the water off when brushing your teeth or shaving. It saves more than 30 gallons of water a week!
- Low-flow showerheads can save over 200 gallons of water a week! A low flow showerhead conserves water without sacrificing a satisfying shower.
- Sweep your patio or balcony instead of using a hose, and save water at the same time! You can save up to 100 gallons of water a week.
- Cover your pool and cut down on evaporation! This can save over 200 gallons of water.
