Take a second to think about how much water you use in the bathroom everyday. Odds are, you are a big "water waster" and you just don't know it. That's bad for the environment and your water bills. Fortunately, by avoiding a few common bathroom blunders, you can stop flushing money down the drain.

  • Think SIMPLE SAVING – How about this idea? Turn off the water while you brush your teeth. In fact, doing this one simple thing can save up to 5-galls of water per day, per person. So when you do the math, a family of 4 can save 7,500 gallons of water each year.
  • Think NO FLOW – You may not realize it, but your shower, toilet, and even garden hose may be using more water than they should be. The newest, latest, modern ‘low-flow’ devices (typically those made after 1996… ok, not exactly new) can save you serious green.
  • A low-flow nozzle for your garden hose will cost less than $20, and will save about 5 gallons a minute when attached to a standard garden hose.
  • A low-flow shower-head will run about $12 at a home improvement store, but can save up to 25 gallons of water during just a 10-minute shower.
  • A low-flow toilet will cost a little more (prices can range all over the place), but if it’s made after 1996, by law it wont use more than 1.6 gallons per flush. Older toilets use between 3.5 and 7 gallons a flush.
