The light flush uses 0.9 gallons of water, and the heavy flush uses 1.6 gallons. Using dual-flush toilets can save about 26-percent more water than low-flow, single-flush models. ✔ Consider using graywater, which is basically wastewater from non-toilet plumbing systems, for watering your lawns and gardens, toilet flushing and other uses. Installing a graywater system has the potential to save you 35% to 40% on your water bill. ✔ Create a building-wide system for catching, reporting and fixing leaks, which waste a lot of water. Periodically remind your tenants to report links to the building’s landlord or property manager. ✔ Consider installing dishwashers. No really – as counter-intuitive as it may seem, dishwashers use from 4.5 to 10 gallons of water per cycle, in contrast to the 16 gallons used to wash an average load of dishes by hand, according to an Ohio State University study. ✔ Are you using sprinklers for irrigation? Drip irrigation systems can use 25 to 75 percent less water than sprinklers, and some say are better systems for watering plants and gardens. ✔ Rethink your laundry area: A national study found that residents with in-unit clothes washers used 3.3 times more water than residents in apartments with common area laundry facilities. Also, be sure to use high-efficiency machines, which use 15 to 25 gallons per normal cycle, in contrast to standard efficiency washers which use 35–45 gallons.
