Conserving water is not just about going green; it is also about saving you money on your water bill! There are many steps you can take to ensure that you conserve water and save energy simply around your home. Whether you conserve water in the kitchen, the bathroom, the washroom, or any other plumbing system, you will be saving money and the environment as well. You will feel great about yourself and your wallet. The following list describes a few ways to conserve water and save hundreds of dollars and gallons on your water bill.
Take A look At These Tips:
- Turn off the water while you lather your hands with soap; think about how often you wash your hands and the amount of water used through that action alone – then imagine half of that water taken off of your bill!
- Brush your teeth when in the shower. If you brush your teeth twice a day, and one of those times is in the shower, you only have to think of the other brushing session.
- When brushing your teeth at the sink, turn the water off when you brush, and only turn it on when it is necessary.
- Turn off water while shaving.
- When hand washing dishes, fill your sink with the water you need and then rinse out the sink after. Letting them soak instead of letting the water run can make the difference in your water bill.
- Regularly maintain and check your plumbing for leaks. Fix them immediately and if it is still broken, call a professional. A leaky faucet can add up to over hundreds of gallons that you will be paying for.
- Replace your toilet flapper if it does not close after flushing.
- Flush your toilet only when you need to. Avoid flushing for a single cigarette butt or a solitary tissue.
- Perform the water meter test. Take a look at your water meter and do not use water for two hours. Check the water meter again; if it has changed, you have a leak. Then thoroughly check your house or call a professional.
- Do not thaw food with running water. Place it in the fridge to get the healthiest outcome for both your water use and food.
- Using one drinking glass a day will drastically lower the amount of dishes to do, thus saving you water.
- Upgrade your toilets and other water appliances with newer ones. Newer models save on more water and are a great long term investment.
- Do not wash your clothes when the load is half full. Run laundry when full to save on hundreds of gallons a month. This leads to significantly less money that is out of your wallet.
- Teach your family how to effectively save water. Anyone can do it and if the whole family is doing their part to use less water in the sinks, showers, tubs, toilets, and washers, the cost of your water bill will drastically decrease.
