Conserve Water Tips For Kitchen & Bathroom In Henrico, VAConserve in the Kitchen and Bath

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Install water-conserving fixtures, such as showerheads and faucets.
  3. 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.
  4. Run dishwasher and washing machine only when they are full.
  5. Turn off the water while you are shaving or brushing teeth to avoid wasting water.
