Water Conservation Critical in California

Jun 4, 2013

Water conservation has become quite the concern in California in recent years. While the public drinking water systems still have plenty of room for improvement, how we utilize and conserve water is more important than ever. We, as consumers, must start conserving water in our homes and in our yards before our reserves get any lower and we find ourselves in a true crisis. Less than 1% of the water on Earth is actually used by humans, and communities around the globe are facing the challenges that come with maintaining healthy and affordable water supplies. According to a recent article in the NY Times, “California needs $39 billion in capital improvements through 2026 for water systems to continue to provide safe drinking water to the public.” This should mean that consumers are looking for drinking water systems to clean their water but also find ways to eliminate water waste. Because of environmental and agricultural factors, it is more important than ever for residents in California to be mindful of how much water they use, how safe their water is, and gain awareness for the products and drinking water systems that can treat their drinking water while reducing waste water and conserving water.

A typical household uses about 260 gallons of water each day. Consumers can easily reduce this amount by fixing leaky faucets, shutting off the water when brushing teeth, taking shorter showers, using less water for landscaping, investing in high-efficiency appliances, and simply paying attention to how much water is used versus how much water is actually needed. By limiting excess water use, you can save gallons of water each day. If you use an old water softener system in your home, consider replacing it our eco-friendly no salt water conditioner which does not waste water and eliminates salt being dumped down the sewer.

If you use an old water softener system in your home, consider replacing it our eco-friendly soft water PE service which dramatically reduces the amount of water wasted as the regeneration process is done efficiently in our plant – not wastefully in your home. It also eliminates salt being dumped down the sewer.

Similarly, purchasing one of our drinking water filters will also conserve water in your household. Imagine the savings, both financially and environmentally that could come from purchasing one of our effective and efficient products. Several people conserving water with drinking water systems adds up to a lot of water which California needs right now. Since each of us depends on water for life and health, it is our responsibility to learn more about water conservation and how we can help keep our water pure and safe for generations to come. Federal efforts to ensure safer drinking water are still needed and we still have many unregulated contaminants in drinking water from the tap. Public drinking water systems have made some updates and improvements, but problems are still being identified without solutions being accomplished. When choosing a drinking water system, choose one of our systems so that your household can save thousands of gallons of water yearly and we can save water just as we need to. Conserving water can be easy both inside the house and outside. But with our drinking water systems, it is as easy as turning on the faucet and enjoying pure, safer drinking water.
