Water conservation is at the forefront of our culture, particularly due to the drought crisis in California. But really, it should have always been one of our priorities. Water conservation is not only a good thing for almost every part of the world, but it is also a great way that you can personally save money. Whether it is for your home or business, the money saved over time by conserving water can be astronomical.
1) Cold Showers: Cold showers are good for your skin, they help you burn fat, and they save on your energy bill seeing the hot water heater doesn’t get used. But even further, they cut down the length of your shower. Hot showers tend to be longer, not only the time you spend in the shower, but the time you spend out of it waiting for it to warm up. A cold shower is a shorter experience, which not only saves water and your water bill, but also leaves you more time to be productive.
2) Check for leaks. Look at faucets and pipes in your building and make sure they aren’t fleecing you. Leaky faucets can really add up to big water bills.
3) Flow control faucets. Install flow control faucets so that you lower the output of the water when employees wash their hands. If you do have a shower, you can do the same with the shower head. There are tons of shower head and faucet conservation mechanisms which you can buy at economic prices.
4) How much does your landscape really need watering? Pending you own the lot your business is on, you might want to consider being a bit conservative with watering practices. Make sure you aren’t wasting water by, for example, watering your gutter. Be precise and only water if you REALLY need to.
