Only less than 1% of all the water on Earth can be used by people. A typical household uses approximately 260 gallons of water every day. We can reduce this amount and save money by using water more efficiently - detecting and fixing leaky faucets, installing high efficiency faucets (HEF), toilets, shower heads, clothes washers and watering the lawn and garden with the minimum amount of water needed.
