5 Ways to Save Water This Fall

Just because summer is officially over doesn’t mean we can’t continue to find ways to conserve water. Sure, you may not be washing your car or using the sprinklers anymore, but here are five easy ways to save water this fall:

1. Water Plants Less Often

Now that it’s getting colder outside, outdoor greenery won’t be growing as much.. Plants actually require less water during the autumn season! There is no need to overcompensate for flowers that will be back again in the spring.

2. Keep Your Water Usage Habits in Check

Nothing feels better on a cold day than a hot shower, but we have a tendency to leave the hot water running too long. In order to save water, you must try and break this habit. Keep conservation in mind especially while showering or brushing your teeth. 

3. Upgrade Your Toilets

Out of all of your appliances, our toilets are the ones that waste the most water. Older toilets aren’t made to conserve as much water as they can. If you are interested in keeping your water usage to a minimum, consider upgrading your toilet! The newer ones can reduce the amount of water used for each flush. 

4. Install Efficient Faucets and Shower Heads

There are many different types of faucets and showerheads that are made specifically for reducing water waste. You can also turn the sink off when not being used, but if you tend to forget this, buying an efficient faucet will help a lot! The showerheads will help if you like to take long showers. 

5. Check for Leaks

One of the most common reasons for wasted water is from leakage within the faucets. Check to see if there are leaks and drips within your pipes! If you think you’ve found something strange, it’s best to contact a professional to fix it.

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.
