10 Ways to Conserve Water

Conserving energy and water does not have to be a time-consuming and expensive task — you can make simple changes in your daily life to conserve resources and money. Here are some clever ways to conserve water this new year and the following years to come. You can thank Green Daily for the great tips.

  1. Don’t dump leftover ice cubes, put them in your plants.
  2. Check for leaks by reading your water meter before and after a two hour period when no water is being used. If there is a change, you have a problem.
  3. Put food coloring into your toilet tank. If the water in the bowl becomes discolored, a simple replacement of the innards will stop the leak.
  4. Use a smaller pot when boiling dinner as it will require less water.
  5. Turn of the shower while you shampoo and condition your hair and save about 50 gallons of water per week.
  6. If it takes a while for your shower to warm up, brush your teeth first with the running water.
  7. If your drink is in a single serve container, don’t get a cup that will only have to be washed later.
  8. Use one cup per person, per day.
  9. Your recylables don’t need to be spotless. Plastics need a hardy wipe but cans and glass are subject to intense heat that will vaporize food residue.
  10. Turn off the water going to your toilets and implement a greywater system in your house. You don’t even need to change the plumbing. Simply reuse bath water. All you need is a bucket.

    I recommend this easy and inexpensive solution to saving water, time, and energy; install a Hot Water Lobster instant hot water valve under the sink farthest form your water heater and you will have instant hot water throughout your entire home. It saves a lot of water that’s normally wasted down the drain while waiting for hot water. The initial $179.95 purchase price is easily recouped by the savings in water and energy! More impressive is the convenience of instant hot water!

    The Hot Water Lobster uses no electricity and is pump free, so it creats no noise. It is made in the U.S.A., has a 10 year warranty, and can be easily installed in under 10 minutes.
