The Green Minute – Water Usage in Bathrooms

Install Low-Flow Faucets

Low-flow faucets and shower heads are available at nearly all hardware stores at very affordable prices. Remodeling your bathroom with an aerator-equipped faucet will give you the greatest energy savings. In the shower, a low-flow faucet can mean significant savings too. Traditional shower heads release approximately 5 gallons of water per minute, whereas water-conserving versions cut usage in half. That means that for a typical 10-minute shower, you could saving 25 gallons of water — a savings of more than 9,000 gallons per year, per person.

Purchase a Water-Conserving Toilet

Replacing your older model toilet with a low-flush version can save you as much as $80 per year for a family of four. What’s better is that water-conserving toilets are just as affordable as their traditional counterparts.

Repair Leaks

Plumbing leaks are common in bathrooms, and repairing them can lead to significant water savings. A single leaky toilet can waste as much as 300 gallons of water per day. Curb your costs and usage by repairing all leaks and checking them regularly for maintenance.
