Water Water Everywhere
The average family of four can use 400 gallons of water every day. The bathroom is the largest consumer of indoor water. The toilet alone can use 27 percent of household water. Almost every activity or daily routine that happens in the homeuses a large quantity of water. So as a daily requirement, are there products and routines that can be looked at to help us reduce our water footprint? Yes!
One aspect of water usage that many homeowners forget is that he amount of water usage is directly tied to your sewer bill. In many parts of the country your charge for sewer services is correlated to how much water comes into the house, because it has to come out of the house! Lower water usage means lower sewer bills.
