The average town today has at least two or three home-improvement or do-it-yourself
stores within the town itself and at least two more (gigantic ones!) in a nearby
mall. It is hard to say whether unemployment, an abundance of retired people
or simply the availability of tools and kits is responsible for this phenomenon,
but it is clear that more and more people are building, or improving, their
own homes. Often people hire professionals for the specialized tasks, such as
the main plumbing of the house, and do the rest themselves.

Another type of kit currently available is one for Water Conservation. Nearly
half of the usual amount of water flowing through a shower can be saved by installing
one of these devices. This not only saves water but also minimizes the cost
of heating the water that you do use. A typical kit containing aerators for
faucets and shower heads costs less than twenty dollars. These devices are designed
to provide an even flow of water no matter what the water pressure is at any
given moment. Another way that a similar kind of saving can be made is through
the use of a water-conserving flushing apparatus on your toilet. It is also
possible to detect hidden leaks which waste water by the use of color tablets.
All of these home improvement items come in kits with easy-to-follow instructions that just about anyone can accomplish.
