American households use an average of 69.3 gallons water per day. However, much of this water is wasted.

Water is a precious resource and should be conserved. These are some tips to help American families reduce their water consumption:

Think Low-Flow. All households in the United States could install water-saving devices such as low-flow toilets or showerheads. This would result in a national water savings of 5.4 billion gallons and $11.3million each day.

Low-flow devices won’t compromise water pressure so Americans can create bathrooms that are luxurious and environmentally-friendly. Short showers can save up to 5 gallons per minute if low-flow devices are not an option.

Only use water when absolutely necessary. Dishwashers typically use less water to wash dishes than washing dishes by hand. But running the dishwater for less than full loads of dishes is a waste of water and electricity. Also, do not wash clothes until your laundry hamper is full. A full load uses less water per pound than a small load.

– Stop leaks. Leakage accounts for 13.7 percent to the average home’s water consumption. This means that more water is used to fix leaks than for washing dishes or taking a bath.

Leakages should be checked by homeowners who inspect pipes, faucets, and hoses. Many leaks are too small to be detected by the naked eye.

Americans should look into new products that can help save water and prevent damage. The FloLogic System acts as a circuit breaker in homes’ plumbing systems.

The FloLogic System is attached to the main water supply, and monitors the flow of water into your home. The FloLogic will sound an alarm if there is a leak and turn off the water supply to prevent any damage.

Insurance companies appreciate the FloLogic system’s value. Many insurance companies offer discounts for homeowners who have installed the FloLogic System.
