Water conservation has come to the forefront in recent years. In our homes, the bathroom is where most of the water usage comes from. If you are thinking of remodeling or renovating your bathroom, you can choose to use options that save water and also will cut down on your water bills every month.
Water Saving Remodel Options
If you want to follow Gandhi's advice to be the change you want to see in the world and begin conserving water at home, you have various ways to start. Some water-conscious bathroom changes include:
1. High Efficiency Faucets : Changing your faucets is a small but painless way to save water The latest high efficiency faucet models are designed well. They do not sacrifice performance and water pressure. You won't feel like you are missing anything while still saving up to 30% water usage.
2.Water-Efficient Toilets: If you have an older toilet model, it might not be as water-efficient as it could be. There are two main options when it comes to water saving toilets:
Low Flush Toilets: These are toilets that are designed to use as little water per flush as they can. They average about 1.3 gallons or less, whereas older toilets use 1.6 gallons or more.
Dual Flush Toilets: These toilets are already popular in European countries and Australia because of their efficiency and water conservation options.
Dual flush toilets have two flush options, based on whether you're flushing solid or liquid waste. The liquid waste option uses only 0.8 gallons and the solid waste flush option uses the standard 1.6 gallons. This adds up over time in both money and water saved.
3.Low Flow Showerheads: Taking a shower is a time of day most people enjoy. They can be reluctant to change if it means sacrificing the experience. Low flow,efficient shower heads can be both beautiful and functional. You can cut water use from 60 to 3 gallons per minute by changing.
