Here are 5 easy ways to conserve water every day.
Water-Saving Tip 1
As obvious as it may sound, it’s important to check all of your fixtures for leaks. Leaks can be small enough that we might not notice that they are happening. A drip can be responsible for wasting tens of thousands of gallons of water per day. If you suspect a leak, contact us.
Water-Saving Tip 2
At any possible opportunity, turn off running water when you aren’t using it. Brushing teeth, shaving, washing dishes, etc. can all result in wasted water by letting the faucet continuously run. Install bathroom sink faucet aerators and kitchen faucet aerators to reduce the amount of water used.
Water-Saving Tip 3
As appealing as a bath can be, it is more water-efficient to take a shower. Showers use less water, and when you install a high-efficiency showerhead, that amount can be even less!
Water-Saving Tip 4
Wash your fruits and vegetables in a pot and/or collect water when you’re waiting for it to heat up. Afterward, you can use the leftover water to water your plants!
Water-Saving Tip 5
Wash full loads of laundry instead of just a few things at a time. Also, washing clothes in cold water can save energy and preserve clothes better. Hot water promotes shrinkage and fades color quicker.
