Seven Ways to Conserve Water

7 Ways to Conserve Water

The drought in California is now entering its fourth year. Since the summer of 2011, rainfall seasons have had precipitation levels far below normal, and winter snowfall, which feeds many reservoirs, has been inadequate. Most cities throughout California have deficits of at least one full year of rainfall, and some cities are close to deficits of two years’ worth of rain. 

Even if two years of higher-than-average rainfall occur, it’s doubtful the state could fully recover from the drought in that time period. Reservoirs are low, farmland lies fallow, and 2014 is shaping up as the driest year on record since 1977

Learning to conserve water at home is important during severe droughts like the one in California, but there are other reasons to avoid using water in the home when it’s not necessary. For one thing, it can lead to lower water bills every month. And it’s not difficult to conserve water. Simply turning off the tap while brushing your teeth can save over 100 gallons of water per month. Here are seven other ways you can conserve water at home.

Should Softened Water Be Used in Operating a Swamp Cooler?

On hot summer nights in the early 1900s, people would often sleep on screened-in sleeping porches. Electric fans would pull the outside night air through damp sheets hung to cool the room. That concept, after being refined, became the evaporative cooler (also known as a swamp cooler, desert cooler and wet air cooler) and has been in use for more than 100 years. Although not as popular as air conditioning systems today, millions of Americans still rely on evaporative coolers to reduce household temperatures by as much as 30 degrees.
