However, summer has ended which means the end of the most barbeque parties and laying by the pool, there are still many reasons to stay water conscious. For example, the fact that 97,5% of our water is consists of seas and oceans and at the moment can’t be used for humans needs. And most part of the 2,5% left is in the ice caps. So we have to deal with the little left as freshwater to stay, well, alive. Let’s see how can you save water in any season.
1. Turn off faucets when you don’t use them or use a low-flow faucet
Traditional taps run 2.2 gallons per minute, while low-flow models run only 1.5 gallons by that time. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s program named WaterSense says that a low-flow faucet can save nearly 30% of water flow. It means it can save a home 700 gallons of water per year.
