Water Conservation Techniques For Vallejo Residents
As the drought in the San Francisco Bay Area and all of California persists, water conservation tips prove to be of value for our customers. This is just one example of some of the frequently asked questions that our plumbers get probed with.
A lot of efforts are focused on using less water, but there are plenty of ways to collect water that is otherwise wasted down the drain – like placing a good-sized bucket in the shower or a basin in the sink.
But what do you do with all that excess water?
Especially if you don't have a garden to water?
Using it to flush your toilet will both limit consumption and recycle all that excess water from being wasted. And the best part is that it's actually pretty easy to do. You’ll need (at minimum) one gallon to properly move the waste from the bowl, or maybe even more if there’s solid waste present.
Take your time and start slowly - simply pour the extra water into the bowl. Don't worry about removing the tank lid or flushing the handle. The extra water and gravity will do all the work; it really is like magic! These water saving efforts will also help you gain the satisfaction of making a positive difference in our ecosystem! Knowing that you’re saving gallons and gallons of clean water every day really does put a smile on you face :)
And it doesn't stop there! You can always spread the word to your friends and family in hopes of getting their households to partake in this technique. If they take action, it's a win/ win/ win. The environment thrives by creating this sustainable wellness for planet Earth, you save money on your water bill, and you maintain a peace of mind from contributing to the world and giving your children a safer place to build their futures in!
