Cure for Epic Drought Could Be a $3.50 Fixture: Utility Solutions Makes Water Conservation Easy

Share Article

A local company offers a product that could save millions of gallons of water every day, costs $3.50, and can be installed by almost anyone in less than five minutes.

Toilets account for 28% of the average home's water use. If just one million Georgia residents installed only one ToiletSave fixture in their home, in just one day Georgia would save more than 7,500,000 gallons of water.

    Utility Solutions, an Atlanta-based company offering energy conservation products and solutions to both businesses and homeowners, has added the ToiletSave to their list of endorsed products. Tom Abt, President of Utility Solutions, says "Toilets account for 28% of the average home's water use. If just one million Georgia residents installed only one ToiletSave fixture in their home, in just one day Georgia would save more than 7,500,000 gallons of water." With more than four million residents in the greater Atlanta area alone, and at least 8.5 million residential toilets and millions more in offices, public facilities, and other businesses, the potential water savings number in the billions of gallons.

Georgia is not the only state suffering from extreme water shortages. Nearly half of the Southeast is experiencing an "exceptional" drought - the National Weather Service's worst drought category. As a result, Georgia officials have already banned almost all outdoor watering across the northern half of the state, while residents are being asked to conserve water through measures such as limiting showers. Restaurants are doing their part by only serving water at customers' requests.

With a dry winter in the forecast and approximately 78 days of stored water left in Lake Lanier, the north Georgia reservoir that supplies water to about 3 million residents, it is time for individuals to take action.

ToiletSave, also referred to as the Toilet Tank Fill Diverter, requires no tools, and installs in three easy steps on almost every toilet. Detailed installation instructions and images can be found at http://www.getwatercop.com.
