Shower Efficiently With Showerheads That Save Water

When you can manage to save both natural resources and money, you’ve accomplished two worthy goals. Likewise, when you put together a plan to save water in your New Jersey home, you’ve set yourself up for both a financial and moral victory. Water-efficient showerheads, coupled with other water-conserving tactics, will go a long way toward achieving these goals.
Luckily, plenty of help is available. The U.S. government has a program, WaterSense, devoted specifically to helping Americans save water in both their homes and businesses.
Start your efforts in the shower. You can save a lot of water by altering your shower habits, primarily, of course, by taking shorter showers. Low-flow WaterSense-certified showerheads are the second part of conserving water in the shower. These showerheads spray less than two gallons of water per minute, whereas standard showers may deliver 2.5 gallons or more. That’s a lot of water when you consider most people shower for several minutes at a time. The lower flow, for the most part, doesn’t change the shower experience. You still get sufficient pressure to make it feel like you’re taking a real shower.
Don’t stop your water-conservation efforts with the shower, however. You can also save an ample amount of water by using WaterSense-certified low-flow toilets. These can save some 20 percent of the water used in an industry-standard toilet that uses 1.6 gallons per flush, while still efficiently removing all of the waste with just one flush. (If you need to flush twice to remove all the waste, you’re definitely not saving water.)
You can safe water with bathroom faucet heads, as well. Nowadays, federal regulations prohibit newly manufactured faucets from exceeding 2.2 gallons per minute. This is a big improvements over the old days when faucets typically sprayed three to seven gallons per minute. Like with showerheads, the low-flow faucets still deliver water with plenty of pressure (as long as your home has sufficient water pressure).
