5 Ways to Save Water During The Holidays

We love all the blessings the holidays bring – quality time with family and friends, delicious food, and cheer to all. The one thing we don’t like that the holidays bring us is a hefty utility bill. With everyone convening at your home to celebrate, you may end up getting a larger than life water bill from Santa. But we’re here to help! Here are some ways to save water during the holidays.

  1. Defrost frozen foods in the fridge instead of running them under cold water. Leaving the faucet on while you try to defrost a 20 pound ham will waste a ton of water, not to mention, it will add a huge weight to your water bill. Let your frozen items chill in the fridge for a while instead.
  2. Wash your fruits and veggies in a bowl. In the same regard, instead of leaving the water running over them, wash your produce in a contained amount of water and save gallons from pouring down the drain.
  3. Set the table with a pitcher of water. Guests constantly filling their glasses can lead to leftover, wasted water. The pitcher allows guests to only pour what they need.
  4. Install faucet aerators. Faucets make up 15% of a home’s indoor water use and they usually spew out water at double the rate necessary. Installing aerators can fix this problems for only a few dollars per sink.
  5. Use the lower setting on the dishwasher. Very rarely do you have to use the regular setting or pre-wash your dishes to get them clean. The light setting on your dishwasher will clean your dishes just as well and use up to 55% less water.

While it may seem like you are bound to use a ton of water during the holidays, these tips will help you use a splash less (see what we did there?). By reducing your water usage, you’ll be helping the planet and helping your wallet. And remember, always have clean, filtered water with a Kinetico Home Water System from Aquarius Water Conditioning.

Kinetico is an essential part of my home because I care about my health.  Kinetico K5 drinking system removes 99% of contaminants, including chlorine, out of my drinking water.  Not only can I taste the difference, but I feel good knowing that I am only consuming clean pure water.  When you have kinetico, less plastic water bottles are used, which is beneficial to our environment.
