Here at Flow Green, we feel a deep passion for conserving our water and energy resources. Every day, countless gallons of water and other energy resources are wasted, and we want to prevent energy wasting as much as we possibly can. Chances are, most people are unaware of all the water that they waste, and they can make several quick and easy changes to prevent such waste from occurring. Read some of our tips for easy ways to conserve water at your home:
Water Your Plants In The Mornings
Anyone who has ever had a vegetable garden most likely knows that watering your plants at night is not good for your garden. Although the temperatures are cooler at night, watering your plants in the evening can promote mold growth in your plants and bring out all kinds of unwanted creepy crawlers. Instead, water your plants early in the mornings when it is still cooler. If you live in a hot climate, this will also prevent your plants from wilting during the hotter times of the day.
Turn Your Tap Off While Brushing Your Teeth
Did you know that water comes out of faucets at an average of 2.5 gallons per minute? If you’re brushing your teeth with the water running for at least the recommended amount of two minutes, then you are wasting five gallons of water. If you do this twice a day, you waste ten gallons of water a day, which results in wasting 70 gallons of water a week. All you have to do is simply turn off the tap while you are brushing and turn it back on when it’s time to rinse. Remember, the same rule can be applied when washing your hands as well. Rather than running the water while you are soaping up your hands, simply turn the water off until it’s time to rinse.
Stop Taking Long Showers
If you have an older shower head, then you might be using as much as five gallons of water per minute, so long showers can waste large amounts of water. You could take shorter showers, or better yet, invest in our FLOWSTM system for showers in order to save large amounts of water.
Fix Your Leaks
If your faucets are leaking, then fix them to avoid wasting large amounts of water. Not only will you be helping the environment, but you will reduce your water bill big time by fixing your leaks. Toilet leaks need to be fixed as well, although they can be harder to detect. Flow Green offers SEEPTM to detect toilet leaks so that you will be able to take action on leaks sooner rather than later.
