Water sense faucets and appliances have been certified by an independent board and the EPA as demonstrating less water usage without sacrificing the flow. Therefore, a home will save water without even noticing. The EPA estimates that switching all faucets to water sense certified faucets can save a family 700 gallons of water per year.

Low flow toilets are another option to save water in the home. Low flow toilets require less water to move waste through the systems without sacrificing flushing power. Switching to a low flow toilet can instantly impact your home’s water bill.
