Think conservation

Here in California we have been faced with a drought for the past 7 years.  If our climate does not change and we don’t get more rain fall and snow we will be facing a water shortage.  What can we do now to try to save our precious natural resource??  The fastest and cheapest way is through conservation.

Here are a few easy suggestions on how to conserve water in the bathroom where the bulk of our water consumption takes place

1 – Check all faucets for leaks.

2 – Turn off the water while brushing your teeth

3 – Do not use the toilet as a garbage can

4 – Take shorter showers

5 – Change your shower head to a new water conservation shower head like the  KOHLER 1.75 gpm water-conserving showerheads and handshowers deliver an impressive 30% water savings over traditional 2.5 gpm showerheads and handshowers.

6 – Install a high efficiency toilet, like the KOHLER® HETs that flush 1.28 gallons or less, when compared to a 3.5-gallon toilet, can save homeowners up to 22,000 gallons of water per fixture per year.
