We all know that water is a precious commodity. From the time we were young, our parents stressed about how much water to let run in order not to waste it; and now as adults living on our own for the first time many of us are still trying to conserve every drop possible by using low-flow showerheads or even going without a bath altogether!
But did you know one single sprinkler head can use up 20 gallons of water per minute? Yes, just ONE sprinkler head! And if there are ten heads running simultaneously at this rate then they will be consuming 200 gallons of H20 each MINUTE…that’s 11,000 gallons an hour!!! It doesn’t take long before your monthly bill skyrockets from the cost of the water alone.
Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem: sprinkler heads with reduced flow rates. These are available at most home improvement stores and come in many shapes and sizes so you can find one that suits your needs best!
Sprinkler heads with reduced flow rates can be set to a variety of different water flow settings from the full-blast, wasteful 20 gallons per minute all the way down to just 0.25 gallons per minute! That’s right, they will average only one gallon every five minutes or 1000 gallons an hour!!! You’ll find that your monthly bills are significantly more affordable than before without having to go without any type of landscaping in front of your home and garden.
