Home Improvement Ideas: How to Cut Water Costs and Preserve the Environment...

Cut Water Costs(ARA) - Most of us give little thought to how much water we use. Compared to other utilities, like heating, water bills are relatively inexpensive for homeowners. Renters typically don't pay for water at all. These factors and the seeming abundance of water in many areas tend to put water conservation under the radar for most of us.

"The plumbing industry has long been concerned with making products that use less water," says Colin Thielmann, who is part of the research and development team for Delta Faucet Company. "However, in the past, many products that saved water didn't perform to consumers' needs and expectations. Technology has allowed for the creation of products such as electronic kitchen and bath faucets and water-saving showers and toilets that deliver a great experience while using significantly less water."

Having the right products is only part of the answer. Changing behaviors at home can go a long way toward conserving water and energy - and at the same time preserving our environment. Here are a few ways you and your family can help:

Out of Doors

In the Kitchen

In the Bath

More water is used in the bathroom than any other room in the home.

These are just a few of the things that can be done in everyday life to conserve water and energy. The earth may be two-thirds water, but only 1 percent of it is considered drinkable. By changing simple behaviors within the home, we can all do our part to preserve this precious resource.
