Whether you’re looking for ways to conserve water because you want to help the environment, save money, or both, all you need to do is follow a few simple techniques. We’ll get you started by providing you with a few quick tips that you start utilizing today:
Stop Taking Long Showers
Many of us love spending a lot of time in the shower, but the truth is that it’s a huge waste of water. Limiting your showers to less than five minutes will keep your water usage low, in addition to giving your water heater less work to do.
Change to Low-Flow Toilets
Each time you flush your toilet, you’re using 3-5 gallons of water. You can lower this considerably, at least by half, by changing your current toilets to the low-flow variety.
Fix Leaks in Faucets and Pipes
Even a small leak in a faucet or pipe will waste a huge amount of water on a daily basis. Find these leaks and get them sealed, and you’ll immediately experience water and money savings.
Install Water-Saving Shower Heads
Cutting down the time you’re in the shower will help considerably, but if you really want to make a dent in your water usage, installing water-saving shower heads is the way to go.
Don’t Run the Water During Brushing
Many people leave the faucet running while they brush their teeth, and that leads to a waste of water. Turning it off once your brush is wet will help to considerably reduce water usage.
Cut Back on Watering Your Lawn
Homeowners want their lawns to be beautiful, but unfortunately, this is where a huge amount of your water usage (and monthly bills) comes from. If you don’t want your grass to turn even slightly brown, though, you may want to understand redesigning your home’s landscape.
