There are many places in the world currently experiencing drought due to higher temperatures with drier rainy seasons. It’s more important than ever that we work together to conserve water. If you’re interested in taking things a step further, consider these awesome devices that can help.
Touchless Kitchen Faucet
If you have the opportunity to switch out your kitchen faucet, try one that is touchless. Alas, not everyone has a dishwasher and it’s quicker and easier to just let the water keep running as you do the dishes. Unfortunately, this wastes a ton of water, (and hopefully encourages rental homeowners to invest in dishwashers) but a touchless kitchen faucet eliminates the water from continuously running. The best part is, there are many brands that offer this from a range of prices, so you can find one within your budget.
Smart Sprinklers are water, time, and money saver. Now you don’t have to go out and water your garden or ask someone to do it while you are away. With a decent setup and device, you can control it all from your smartphone. It can go so far as to determine if your plants need watering at all saving both your plants and your budget.
Smart Meters For Showers
If you’re worried about how long your showers take and what comes out of them, aside from timing yourself on your phone, a smart shower meter goes a little further. Not only can they track how much water you are using, but they can also determine how much energy was put into it!
If your true goal is working toward a more sustainable way of living in your home, or you truly are worried about water consumption in a drought, these are wonderful tools to help you do your part. Let tech get us through the next drought, where we make better choices when conserving our water.
