Save money while saving water!
Most homeowners of today are always looking for ways on how to save money. From reviewing their insurance regularly to turning off lights during the day, there are plenty of ways to cut down on utility bills. When it comes to the water bill, there are some simple steps that you can take to reduce your bill, save water, and help the planet!
Replace your showerhead – The simplest thing you can do is replace your showerhead with one that has a lower flow rate. New showerheads can’t exceed a flow rate of 2.5 gallons a minute. But three people taking a 10-minute shower every day equates to 75 gallons of water! Replacing your showerhead with one that conserves more water is an easy switch to make – and you won’t even know the difference!
Fix all leaks – You may not know that a leak is siphoning money from your wallet every month. Even a minor leak can have a devastating effect on your water consumption. Get leaks fixed as soon as you noticed them by a licensed plumber.
Garden efficiently – If you have a big, green lawn and beds of colorful plants, then chances are you use a lot of water to keep it that way. There are ways, however, to keep your garden looking top notch whilst being water efficient. Choose water-efficient plants (i.e. cactuses) and collect rainwater to water your plants.
Change your habits – Some of the best and most effective ways you can save water is by making changes to the way you use water day to day. For example, turn off the tap while you brush your teeth. Have a shower instead of a bath. Wash up instead of stacking the dishwasher. If you do use the dishwasher, only turn it on when it’s full.
