Why Use a Product that Conserves Water?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Water Sense program encourages collecting and filtering water due to the fact that, amazingly, only 1% of the world’s water is consumable. An average household uses approximately 260 gallons of water per day when it comes to bathing, cleaning, gardening and/or consuming. The EPA estimates that it is possible to save approximately 1,300 gallons of household water when collected in rain barrels simply for landscaping use. This is about 40% of total household water. You can also save a substantial amount of money when filtering your own tap water. Avoid purchasing wasteful, un-sustainable water bottles and install your own home filter. This can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars per year (according to usage) as well as reduce the huge carbon footprint petroleum based bottles pose to global warming, pollution and ocean contamination.

How Does the Future of Water Conservation Look?

Treating, heating and pumping water makes up about 8% of U.S. energy demand which, according to the EPA, is enough to power 5 million homes for one year. As more rainwater catchment is practiced by consumers and businesses alike, while at the same time using advanced filter systems, the inevitable depletion of water may be hindered. In addition, solar heating and pumping stations can save energy as well as money adding to future water conservation. Cities across the country are implementing their own eco-water programs including such practices as offering homeowner conservation kits, encouraging residential rain barrel placement and educating on the proper water filtration techniques in both residential as well as commercial applications.

By embracing products that conserve water you are actively engaging in a global effort to enhance this essential, life giving resource. So collect, filter and use this gift that literally falls into our laps.Treating, pumping and heating water TreT
