We’ll help you get started with water-saving tips that are easy to do:
- Fix leaky faucets: Although the water that drips from a leaky faucet may seem minimal and unimportant, it will add up quickly. According to a government study, a single leaky faucet in a home that drips twice per minute will waste 70 gallons of water a year. If you can’t repair a leaky faucet on your own, have a professional plumber take care of it.
- Water your lawn in early morning or late evening: If you water your lawn during the day, when the temperature is high, most of the water will evaporate before it can do any good for the plants. You’ll just end up needing to water the yard more often.
- Turn off the tap when you don’t need it: It’s simple to forget to shut off the water while doing simple tasks like brushing your teeth or doing the dishes. According to the U.S. EPA, you can save 8 gallons of water a day if you shut off the faucet while brushing your teeth in the morning and evening: that’s approximately 200 gallons a month.
- Install low-flow fixtures: Professional plumbers can fit your home with low-flow faucets, as well as other water-conserving appliances. You can also consider moving from a storage water heater to a tankless water heater that works far more efficiently, which saves energy.
