October is National Kitchen and Bath Month

Did you know that bathrooms are the biggest water users in your home, accounting for more than half of all indoor water use? With water utility costs on the rise—now averaging more than $700 per year across the United States—there’s never been a better time to give your bathroom a “mini-makeover” that will save water and money.

Build a Better Bathroom encourages consumers to make their bathrooms more efficient and high-performing with WaterSense labeled products. CINCO MUD 8 along with the National Kitchen and Bath Association and the EPA remind you to build a better bathroom. It is as simple as 1, 2, 3. I. Replace all faucet aerators, II. Replace showerheads with low-flow heads, III. Check for toilet leaks and if needed replace with a high efficiency toilet. Saving water SAVES YOU MONEY.

When in Drought

Water between the hours of 4am and 8am to avoid evaporation during daylight hours.

The NFBWA Talking Sprinkler, Larry says you only need to water your lawn twice a week.
