Well COVID may still be affecting our daily lives, but Summer is finally around the corner.
What does that mean to your water? And How can you keep using your resource efficiently? We'll break that out here.
Summer is synonymous with water. The average North American person uses 50-70 gallons of water daily. That amount can double in the Summer, with lawn and garden care, swimming pools, sprinklers, backyard water slides, etc. And that’s just outside. Inside our houses we take more showers, we do more laundry, we wash more dishes, the list goes on and on.
Our water use will be at very high levels of consumption when you combine the Summertime usage with the quarantine extra usage, all leading to one thing, higher bills.
But there is no need to panic. There are many ways that we can save on our water usage. One of the simplest ways is to change the aerators in your faucets and use WaterSense showerheads that have better flow regulators. If you’re a property manager or owner, fixing any leaks would be crucial in a time like this, and by adding a sub-meter to your plumbing infrastructure you can monitor your building usage. Other ways to save include installing a water-saving toilet, using the dishwasher only when it's full, and insulating your water pipes.
With a majority of us still at home for the foreseeable future, these simple changes can help save our most valuable resource and ensure that we can continue to enjoy our Summers the way we have for generations.
