In today’s economy, we’re all looking for ways to save somemoney. While water is a household essential, not every household is using its water supply efficiently. If you’re currently living in an older home, one of the simplest ways to save money each month is by updating your water fixtures!
Until 1992, homes in America had fixtures that put out as much as 5.5 gallons per minute; that’s a ridiculous amount of water. Thankfully, due to federal regulations that were cut to a maximum output of 2.5 gallons per minute. That cut the amount of water being used by more than 50 percent in some households!
Just because you don’t have an outdated showerhead doesn’t mean you can’t save yourself more money. While 2.5 gallons per minute is the most you can use nowadays, that doesn’t mean you can’t find showerheads that offer 2 gallons per minute or lower to save you even more.
Not only does water usage add up every month on your water bill, but so does heating the water you use. By using less water you’re actually saving on your energy bill as well.
