5 Ways to Conserve Water

Living in California, especially, we always hear about the drought we’re in, but it can be confusing what you can do at home to help and lower your water bill. So that’s why we’ve compiled a list of easy ways that you can conserve water at home.

#1 Way to Conserve Water – Be conscious of every time water is running

Water does not usually need to run for as long as people leave it running. For this reason, you should try to be conscious when water is running and ask yourself if it needs to be running. To get you started, this is a list of activities to turn your water off for:

  • Brushing your teeth.
  • Washing your face.
  • Washing your hands
  • Avoid excessively long showers.

#2 Way to Conserve Water – Only run your dishwasher or washing machine with full loads

Dishwashers and washing machines use significantly more water than people think, so you can reduce your water consumption by consciously only running these machines for full loads.

#3 Way to Conserve Water – Install a low flow toilet and shower head

Low flow toilets are specifically designed to use less water per flush than regular toilets. These types of toilets are more environmentally friendly, but they also save you money on your monthly water bill and increase your home value.

Low-flow shower heads can reduce your water consumption during showers by 40% without decreasing water pressure. Newer low-flow showers use smaller apertures, so your water pressure can actually increase with them! If you have any questions on low-flow toilets and showerheads, call a plumbing professional at High Speed Plumbing, and we can answer all your questions quickly!

#4 Way to Conserve Water – Fix leaks as soon as possible

As soon as you suspect that there might be a leak in your house, it’s essential that you contact a professional plumber to avoid unnecessary damages or costs. The following are common signs that there is a leak in your house:

  • Your water bill is unusually high without any fundamental changes.
  • A sudden drop in water pressure.
  • You notice mold or mildew around your home.
  • Damaged flooring or sagging ceilings.

#5 Way to Conserve Water  – Only run your sprinkler system early in the morning

This prevents unnecessary water evaporation from the hottest parts of the day while leaving your lawn still hydrated and green with less water. You should also make sure all of your sprinklers face grass instead of sidewalks and pavements.

On average, American households can reduce their water consumption by 20% by making these simple changes. These changes to your water usage can reduce your carbon footprint while also reducing your monthly bills, so there’s no reason not to start now.
