Our Washington DC Plumbers are fully aware of how important water conservation efforts are when looking at things from not only an environmental standpoint, but also from an economical one. If ignored, a small leak can ultimately have a large impact on your water usage, which will undoubtedly raise a water bill. Below are a few pieces of advice we feel are noteworthy with regards to having a more efficient and green-friendly bathroom.
1. Fix Leaks: Any leak is a waste of water and should be promptly taken care of; a leaking toilet alone can waste 200 gallons of water a day!
2. Update & Save: Consider toilet replacement, prior to the 1950s, most U.S. toilets used about seven gallons per flush and have been dropping water usage levels throughout the past several decades. A modern efficiency toilet is now down to using 1.28 gallons, which can make a substantial impact.
3. Go with Low- Flow: Switching from a conventional showerhead to a low-flow model will use almost 2 gallons less per minute.
In general, being more conscience of your own personal water usage can make a large impact as well. Every little bit counts, cutting down your shower by a few minutes or turning off the sink when brushing your teeth can make a difference.
