Beat The Drought Early!
During the hot summer months, many of us will experience droughts throughout the country. You can help reduce the use of water for your customers by installing low-flow showerheads in showers or bathtubs. Be sure to select a showerhead that has a flow rate of no more than 2.5 gallons per minute at 80 psi for optimal water savings. Your customers will see water savings between 25% -50% by using an energy efficient showerhead.
You can also advise your customers to use faucet aerators throughout their home. Aerators are the screw on tip of the faucet that can be replaced to restrict the amount of water flow. Ideally, you’ll want to install an aerator that has a flow rate of 1.0 gpm for maximum water efficiency. However, anything lower than 1.75 gpm would be more efficient then what is typically used in new faucets directly off the shelf.
If your customers are using a well for water supply, these adjustments will have a significant impact on their water usage and allow them to save for future droughts. Customers that are accessing their local water utilities will see a decrease in their water usage bill and effectively be putting money back into their pocket. Don’t forget, the little things like a low flow showerhead and aerators can go a long way for your customers.
