The image to the right is a small part of a new infographic on water conservation. It touches on some main elements of household water use. (For Pete’s sake, if you do have an ancient 3.5 gallon-per-flush toilet, swap it out for a new and better working 1.28 gpf WaterSense-certified model).
However, I am not at all sure that the biggest barrier to improving water efficiency in the home is a lack of information.You probably know in your own home what are the biggest areas of potential improved water efficiency. Go ahead and fix them. (Or your neighbors will make fun of you!)
