6 Quick Ways to Reduce Water Use in Your Home

There are many reasons to limit the amount of water you use in your home. Water conservation is good for the environment and can also be good for your bank account. Excess water use can cost you more in utility bills, put extra stress on a septic system and deplete natural resources. There are many ways to reduce water use around the home, but here are six ways you can start today. 

  1. Stop running water down the drain. Whether you are brushing your teeth or rinsing dishes, avoid running water directly down the drain. Shut it off between uses.
  2. Take shorter showers. Each shower uses several gallons of water. Keep showers short, or better yet, turn off water while you lather up your hair and body, then rinse off.
  3. Only do full loads of laundry. Small loads of laundry add up to more water used than one full load. Only do laundry when you have a full load.
  4. Only do full loads of dishes. Just like the clothes washer, only turn on the dishwasher when it is completely full.
  5. Water grass and gardens morning/night. Less water is needed to water outside when it is cooler, so set the timer on your irrigation for morning or night.
  6. Fix leaks. A leaky faucet or shower can create gallons of water waste every day. Call a plumber and get those leaks fixed today.

You can greatly reduce your water use with these small tricks, helping with conservation and reducing the cost of water use in your home. Talk to your local plumber about installing water-efficient appliances and fixtures to reduce your water use even further.
