Our great-grandparents managed on less than 4 gallons of water per day – we on the other hand, with our use of electrical appliances, car-washers, showers, baths and irrigation use 100-125 gallons per person per day.
It is therefore important not to waste water. Using water efficiently helps our environment and also your bank balance!
- It keeps your bills affordable – by saving water, you save money and your water bill will be less
- Reduces Energy Consumed – in an average home, heating water accounts for 15% of the total household energy use and almost 30% of all indoor water is actually hot water used for showers, cleaning, washing and more.
- Did you know that if you run hot water from a faucet for five minutes it equals the same amount of energy it takes to burn a light-bulb for 14 hours.
- Environmental Benefits: By reducing the amount of water, you will reduce the amount of waste water.
