The holiday season has arrived, which for us at WaterSignal means even more ways to save water! When preparing for the holidays, save water and money with the following 8 water-conscious tips:
Producing products made from 100 percent recycled paper requires much less water than products made from virgin paper.
During the holidays, the bathroom is probably harder to use than usual and thus more prone to problems. A faulty toilet valve can waste up to 200 liters per hour!
When planning a meal, consider switching from a meat dish to a vegetarian. Nearly eighteen hundred gallons of water are needed to produce a single pound of beef.
The safest and most effective way to defrost food is to put it in the refrigerator.
It also helps preserve the nutrients in the food.
Do you have an Energy Star approved dishwasher? Save water by operating the entire dishwasher, not by washing your hands. Don’t have an efficient dishwasher? Wash the dishes in a partially filled sink and then rinse off the spray on the tap.
Instead of letting the tap run to rinse the vegetables, rinse them in a pan or a basin with clean water.
For added security, consider using WaterSignal’s breakthrough water monitoring technology. If a leak or anomaly occurs, the device will immediately notify you that a water peak has occurred above the preset limit. Alarms can also be sent via SMS and email for quick analysis, and alarm hours are fully customizable.
If you plan to hold a gathering that brings together people from different households, be sure to follow CDC guidelines.
