Cooking and Washing
Cooking and washing accounts for a large share of a home's consumption of both cold and hot water. You can reduce your water consumption and water heating expenses by implementing some simple conservation measures:
- Take showers instead of baths. A five-minute shower will use about 7.5 gallons of hot water; filling a bathtub can use up to 20 gallons.
- Install water-conserving fixtures, such as showerheads and faucets.
- Fix leaky hot water faucets. One drop per second can add up to 165 gallons per month - more than a person uses in two weeks.
- Run dishwasher and washing machine only when they are full.
- Turn off the water while you are shaving or brushing teeth to avoid wasting water.
