Adding an aerator to your kitchen faucets can conserve water without lowering pressure.

Water Saving Tips from Moen | Water Saving and Water Conservation

 
Moen recently released "20 Ways to Save Water Without Sacrificing Performance." Since we are big on water conservation here at renovateyourworld.com, I thought I'd pass along the link to the article and cite a few examples here. Just a few ways:

  • Choose fixtures certified to meet WaterSense criteria, which offer a flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm), compared to an industry standard of 2.2 gpm. WaterSense is a partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that aims to decrease indoor and outdoor water use through water-efficient products and simple, water-saving practices. All of Moen's lavatory faucets are certified to meet WaterSense criteria.

  • Add faucet aerators (2.2 gpm rating is adequate) to existing kitchen faucets to conserve water without reducing pressure.

  • Use as little fertilizer as possible - it can increase plants' water consumption.

  • Take a peak at the extended list. Although it was made to educate Moen dealers and distributors, the tips are immediately applicable for the homeowner looking to conserve water around the home.
