Save water and protect the environment
TLC Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help you choose quality, water-efficient products. Many products are available, and don't require a change in your lifestyle.
Some faucets and faucet accessories (such as aerators) are high-performing, water-efficient fixtures. If every household in America installed a water-efficient faucet or aerator, we could save more than 60 billion gallons of water annually.
Save Water, Save Money
The average household spends as much as $500 per year on its water and sewer bill. By making just a few simple changes to use water more efficiently, you could save about $170 per year. If all U.S. households installed water-efficient appliances, the country would save more than 3 trillion gallons of water and more than $18 billion dollars per year! Also, when we use water more efficiently, we reduce the need for costly water supply infrastructure investments and new wastewater treatment facilities.
Water Conservation Tips:
Water is not a renewable resource. While we may never exhaust this resource, we can never increase it either. We can only recycle it. To conserve this precious and costly resource:
- Repair or replace any dripping faucets promptly since a leaky faucet can waste gallons of water in a short period of time.
- Install aerating, low-flow faucets and showerheads that can save up to 300 or more gallons per month.
- Replace older, existing toilets with WaterSense labeled models to save up to 4,000 gallons of water per year.
- Check with the local water authority or www.bewaterwise.com for any incentives to upgrade to high-efficiency plumbing fixtures.
- Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes.
- Take short showers instead of baths.
- Turn of the faucet when you brush your teeth.
- Water your yard before 8:00 a.m. to reduce evaporation.
- Use mulch around plants to keep hundreds of gallons of water from evaporating each year.
- Check your sprinkler system for leaks, overspray and broken sprinkler heads.
- Use a broom rather than a hose to clean of your driveways and sidewalks.
