We’re in a Drought! Fixtures That Save You Water Without Compromising Your Experience

California continues to suffer through a record-breaking drought.  Now in its fourth year, the drought is forcing the government to implement new restrictions on water use and has inspired homeowners to make water-saving changes. Even Americans outside the drought-stricken area are trying to conserve water as they grow more environmentally conscious and want to pinch pennies.

One area that is ripe for conservation efforts is the household bathroom.  The typical bathroom is the biggest culprit for water wastage in the home. The average US household uses 400 gallons of water per day with a whopping half of those flowing through the bathroom.  The bathroom toilet alone accounts for nearly 27 percent of all water use at home. These shocking figures are driving consumers to embrace bath fixtures that use less water.

Older toilets use between 3.5 and 7 gallons of water per flush. If the toilet is leaking, it might pull an additional 200 gallons of water through a home each day. This means upgrading your old porcelain throne is a wise investment.

A water-efficient toilet can use as little as 1.2 gallons per flush and with the latest engineering, they take care of business better than ever. Major brands (including Delta, Moen, and American Standard) are producing efficient models that save water and money while looking great in the bathroom.


It is hard to beat a hot shower after a long day at work, but showers are another huge waste of water in the home.  Thanks to the development of eco-friendly showerheads, this is an area where savings can occur without sacrificing a pleasant experience. Old-fashioned water-reducing showerheads often limited water pressure in the shower.  However, today’s models are designed to mimic high pressure and make sure your shower feels great.

Major manufacturers have developed new showerheads that reduce the flow of water to 1.5 gallons per minute. That is a 25 to 33 percent savings over old school showers. These showerheads look great in the bathroom and come in the whole spectrum of styles and colors.


A standard bathroom faucet runs at two gallons per minute. That is a lot of water heading straight down the drain when you brush your teeth or shave.  Thankfully, there are great looking new water saver faucets on the market that decrease the amount of water flow by 25 to 75 percent.

The increased demand for these energy saving fixtures means major brands are producing them in a wide range of looks. There is no need to sacrifice style for water saving. This means there is no reason your next bathroom sink cannot be state-of-the-art when it comes to conservation.
