Celebrate Earth Day in Asheville by reducing water consumption

“Water is one of the easiest sources to waste without notice,” he said Max Rose, owner of Four Seasons Plumbing. “It is certainly a tool that we usually take for granted. We can take a 30 minute shower to relax from a stressful day or run the water while doing the dishes.

‘All this is a waste of a valuable resource, but we don’t notice it because we never think of water as a finite thing. With the exception of an emergency, most of us have never run out of water. it is a major problem for many homeowners. “

There are several ways that a person can reduce water consumption on a regular basis. Limiting time in the shower is an effective way.

According to the EPA, an eight-minute shower can use more than 16 gallons of water. Over the course of a year in the United States, more than a trillion liters of water is used just by taking showers.

Another method to conserve water is to install highly efficient plumbing fixtures in your home. Installing these fixtures can not only save you money, but it can also help reduce your water and energy consumption.

“Some very efficient fixtures, such as low-flow toilets, have been installed in most new homes since 2011,” said Rose. “They only use one gallon per flush. That’s much less than the conventional toilet, which uses 3.5 gallons.”

WaterSense fixtures are recommended by the EPA and are proven to reduce water. According to the EPA, WaterSense faucets can reduce water usage in sinks by at least 20%.

“Little things like taking shorter showers or turning off the water while rubbing soap on our hands can help reduce water consumption,” said Rose. “Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a big difference to the planet.”
