When planning your bathroom design, one thing you should consider is the amount of water you use. Not only do you want to reduce water usage in order to save money on your water bills, you’ll want to do so to reduce your environmental footprint as well. The following are a few water conservation tips to consider when planning your bathroom design:
- Install WaterSense faucets – Faucets that are approved by WaterSense label will reduce the flow of water by up to 30 percent without sacrificing any performance. This can end up saving you roughly 500 gallons of water every year. Go the extra step by adding an aerator to decrease the water flow while increasing the water pressure.
- Install a dual-flush toilet – Toilets consume a ton of water. Dual-flush toilets boast two flushers, one for liquid waste, which uses less than one gallon of water, and one for solid waste.
- Use graywater – Install a graywater system in which used sink water is filtered and disinfected before being reused for toilet flushing.
