Water Conservation: Every drop counts-breakthrough ideas that can help conserve water!
Water conservation has remained a very crucial issue over the past decades because of the increasing pollution of water bodies and dwindling resources for the supply of potable water. Here are a few examples of some water-saving technology that, if installed across the world, would have a big impact on making sure our water supply doesn?t become depleted.
Do you leave the water running when you?re brushing your teeth or shaving? Don?t worry, a lot of people do. Unfortunately! But did you know that by replacing an old, inefficient faucet with a WaterSense labeled model could save 700 gallons of water per year, equal to the amount of water needed to take 40 showers? That?s a lot of showers and a lot of water.
When it comes to water consumption, every drop counts. Although we may not notice it, leaks are a major culprit of water waste, we need to think about water conservation.
With this in mind, some smart home and building systems include water/moisture sensors that alert you when it detects either of the two. Some sensors and systems immediately shut off your water system to prevent further damage and waste. Other appliances are hooked up to your main water supply line and constantly track the water flow to prevent the smallest of leaks before they become a problem.
Water is a precious resource that humans have sometimes taken for granted, but with the rise of public water-saving initiatives, an increased focus on personal responsibility, and the progress being made with advanced technology, we're more poised than ever to fix that.
