Water Conservation

Ecohouse residents engage in a number of simple water conservation efforts in the house.

 

 

Reduced water per flush: The toilet tank has a 2 liter bottle of water taking up space, thus reducing the amount of water used per flush.

Rainwater: The rain barrel on the back porch collects rainwater from the gutters.  The water collected is used on the landscape and for household efforts such as flushing the toilet.

Low Flow Shower Head: The shower is equipped with a low-flow high-pressure showerhead that greatly reduces the amount of water consumed from showering.
