Here’s What You Can Do
There are plenty of ways to conserve water, including:
Schedule leak detection
If you find that you are paying more and more for water, it might just be that you’ve got a leak. Since it’s difficult to know for certain that you have a leak until there’s water all over your floors, you’ll need to call a professional plumber for leak detection. The sooner this is done the better as it makes gallons of difference.
Upgrade to a low-flow toilet
The toilet uses more water than any other fixture inside your home. In fact, it can account for 40% of indoor water use! Therefore, installing a low-flow toilet is a great way to save water. Rather than using 3 gallons of water per flush, like a normal toilet would, a low-flow toilet only uses 1.28 gallons per flush.
Install low-flow fixtures
Why not go crazy with installing low-flow plumbing fixtures in your house? Not only can you install low-flow toilets, but you can also add low-flow showerheads and faucets to your plumbing system.
Only run the dishwasher with full loads
You might have heard that a dishwasher uses less water than washing dishes and utensils by hand. This is true, and the newest models of dishwashers are even more efficient at water use. However, you’ll end up wasting money if you run only small or half loads at a time. Let the dishes fill up the dishwasher racks before running a load.
Yes, you’ve heard this one before. But it bears repeating because people often let the idea go because—well, long showers are the best! But, each minute you can cut off your shower time will save 2 ½ gallons. If it helps, set a timer!
