Water Wasting AppliancesIf you use a sink, a faucet, a toilet, a shower, a washer, a dishwasher, a water heater or a reverse osmosis system, then you waste water. We know you may not mean to, but water appliances do waste water and the one that wastes the most is the easiest one for us to help you with – that’s right, your RO system. Traditional reverse osmosis POU systems were installed without the best and more efficient technology. If yours doesn’t have our LINX® technology, then it is simply wasting too much water in a time where we must conserve as much as we can. Just as you can see on our infographic, your washing machine, showerheads, and toilet could be wasting thousands of gallons of water each year added together, but your reverse osmosis system could be wasting as much as 33 gallons of water for every 1 gallon of drinking water it produces. That could be around 10,000 gallons of water wasted each year! According to the Environmental Protection Agency, POU water waste accounts for BILLIONS of dollars of wasted water every year. In drought conditions, this is unacceptable. Our everyday habits like showering, using a toilet or doing laundry and the dishes contribute to our annual waste totals.  Showering for example, accounts for 17% of residential indoor water use, adding up to over 14,000 gallons of water per year, for the average family. Even though the planet is covered mostly by water, humans can only utilize about 1% of the Earth’s water. As our local, state and even world populations continue to increase, the need for water is also increasing. By saving up to 90% with our drinking water systems and water filters, you can feel good knowing that you’re helping to conserve this important resource that seems to be slipping away day by day here in California.
