Indoor Water Conservation – Part 5

Hundreds of gallons of water are wasted inside your home and business each year. Conserve water and save money when you become WaterSmart!*

Bathroom Faucets

Bathroom faucets use two to seven gallons of water per minute.

  • Always turn off the water while brushing your teeth and washing your hands.
  • Install a low-flow faucet aerator with a flow restrictor to reduce the flow by 25%.
  • Remember to clean the aerator routinely to remove any obstructing particles collected in the screen.
  • Fix leaks immediately: a small drip can result in up to 15 gallons of water a day or 105 gallons a week in wasted water, which adds up to more than 5,000 gallons of wasted water a year!

*WaterSmart is a water conservation education program initiated by the Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA). Its mission is to educate about the importance of indoor and outdoor water conservation so that all residents can help make a difference and be WaterSmart.
