Here are 5 easy ways to conserve water every day.
As temperatures rise around the world and we see more wildfires, and droughts it’s more important than ever to save water. We understand knowing where to start can be overwhelming that is why we provide you with easy steps you can follow to help conserve water every day.
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.
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.
As appealing as a bath can be, it is more water-efficient to take a shower. The average bathtub holds 42 gallons of water. Showers use less water, and when you install a high-efficiency showerhead, that amount used will be even less!
Wash your fruits and vegetables in a large 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, your garden, or even the trees in your yard!
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.
