None of us likes to waste, isn’t that true? Unfortunately, there are some things that we might be wasting without even thinking about it. The problem might lie in the apparent abundance of a resource. In this country, there is no shortage of water, unlike some countries where there is a daily struggle to have enough water to make it through the day. This is part of the reason why the average American uses about 100 gallons of water daily according to some statistics.
If you want to change this behavior, it is definitely possible. The best way to accomplish it is by a combination of behavior changes and upgrades to your plumbing fixtures.
If you have an old toilet, it will more than likely prove to be one of the major sources of water waste in your home. Older toilets could use as much as 7 gallons per flush, which is about 5 times what a modern toilet uses.
Installing aerators on your faucets will also have a big impact on the water usage in your home. These will maintain the pressure your faucet puts out while significantly lowering the water used.
