Have you ever noticed how much water is being wasted in your household?
You should do something about that.
Humans use water quicker than the Earth can replenish. To provide enough
clean water for people to drink, it is cleaned at drinking water treatment plants or
by a septic system. 70% of earth is water. 97.5% of Earth’s water is not in
drinkable condition. 2.5% of water is drinkable, but about one third of it is in frozen
form. The water left to drink in only roughly 1% of the total water on Earth. Water
is cleaned after it is used and that repeats over and over. Conserving water puts
ease on wastewater treatment plants because the less water you put down the
drain, the less work the plants have to do. Saving water also saves energy because
your water is heated and people take long, hot showers. A very money consuming
way of getting drinkable water is collecting rainfall in large dams. Many
economically challenged communities go without clean drinking water because they
can’t afford water filtering technology. Those communities have to conserve water
as much as possible because they have very limited supply. Global warming has
affected rainfall patterns which has caused water scarcity in certain areas of the
A lot of water is wasted by how much water is flowing out of the faucet.
When you are brushing your teeth so much water is getting wasted if you leave the
water run. The pressure of the water. Also, when people shave, they may leave
the water running so they can rinse the shaving cream off the razor and their face
all through the time they are shaving. Toilets consume a lot of water when they are
flushed. People flush their toilets many times a day. Some people even use them
as trash cans. They flush small things down the toilet. Leaks waste a lot of water
constantly because even if your faucet is off, the pipes still leaks. A single leak can
waste several thousand liters of water per year. Showers use a lot of water because
of the time people are in there and because of people letting the water run so the
water will heat up. The pressure of the water makes more water come out of the
shower nozzle. The bathroom probably has the highest water consumption out of
the entire household. About 29% of water used is by the toilet, and about 20% is
used by the bath and shower daily. So almost 50% of water is used just in one
room. Also, washing your car consumes a lot of water. Hoses use roughly 10
gallons of water per minute. So you end up using up to 140 gallons of water. A lot
of water is used when people let the water run when they are washing dishes.
Washing machines consume a lot of water because of how long they are on.
Laundry consumes about 13% of water daily. Lawns are gardens consume a lot of
water because people let their sprinklers run all day and people over water their
plants because they are worried. 35% of the daily water usage is consumed by
lawns and gardens. So, all those apparatuses are using so much water daily, but
drinking and cooking only uses about 2% of water daily.
To cut down on the water usage, instal a low water flow showerhead or
aerator filter for a sink faucet. Low flow showerheads reduce the flow by at least
25%. Aerator filters create the same amount of water pressure, but with less water.
The aerator filter displaces water with air. Turn the water off while brushing your
teeth and do not let the water run constantly when you are shaving. Fill up the sink
with warm water then turn the water off so you can rinse your razor. Save the water
in a container that runs when the water is warming up. You can use that water to
water your plants. Fill a milk jug with rocks and put it in your toilet tank to displace
water. Use a low flush toilet and do not use your toilet as a trash can by flushing
down small things throughout the day. Low flush toilets reduce water usage by 40%
to 50%. Fix any pipe or appliance that is leaking as soon as possible and make sure
to turn off taps tightly so there is not any drippage. Do not wash your car with a
hose, take your car to a public car wash because public car washes only use roughly
35 gallons of water per car wash. When hand washing dishes, do not run the water
constantly. Use the dishwasher on a short cycle and only on full loads. Wash only
full loads in the washing machine and use short cycles and the suds-saver if your
washer has that feature. Do not overwater your plants or run your sprinkler system
all day. Set a short timer on your sprinkler system because lawns and gardens only
require about 5 millimeters of water per day in warm weather, and even less is
needed during cooler weather.
Now you know many ways you may be wasting water and solutions for
conserving water. Go out and make the world a better place.

I know I said the previous update would be the last one, but I have made some changes and I want to tell you something pretty cool. First off, I will be embedding all of my videos, but not editing them. That will free up space on both of my accounts my google drive because Screencastify saves to google drive. I have used up about 99% of 15gb on both of my google drive accounts and it is mostly from videos. Probably about 12gb is from videos on my main account, but maybe 14gb is from videos on my second account. Speaking of my second account, that account is going to be link to a new YouTube channel that my dad and I are going to make in a few months. That youtube channel will be linked to my website, olivefun.weebly.com on my YouTube page along with my current YouTube channel. Do not worry, I will still be posting on my current channel and try to post more frequently. My dad and I will be doing some pretty lit stuff! Thank you for taking your time to read this and even taking time to browse on my blog. Definitely go check out my current YouTube channel now, youtube.com/FrankenSTONE79. I know I am looking forward to starting that channel and I hope you are able to and want to take time and watch my videos. BYEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
I do not know who's birthday it is today, but happy birthday to whoever's birthday it is. LOL!
I have been thinking and I have decided on something a little more reasonable about my old videos. I am not going to re-embed all of them to my blog with my intro added to it because I want to show the increase in quality and content in my videos. I have already done about 10 but I am going to stop. If you have no idea what I am talking about, go to previous pages and find Video Update or Update posts and most of them are about this video stuff. I still have to edit all of my vlogs because I have not posted any of them. Also, I think I might have more gaming videos saved on Google Drive that have not been posted yet. I have to look back and see what's what because I have been putting most of my effort into my YouTube videos. If you guys did not know, I have a YouTube channel called FrankenSTONE. [youtube.com/FrankenSTONE79] I have been working on videos other than gaming for my channel and that should come out a little later today or tomorrow from the date of this post. You may be reading this later so it might already be posted. So go check out my YouTube videos. Make sure to like them, give feedback, share, and subscribe to my channel! Thank you for taking your time to read this and check out my blog and channel. BYEEE!!
