If you have high water bills, you may consider conserving water in your home. Whether you have a lot of people in your household or just yourself, there are plenty of ways to ensure that your home is as efficient as possible when it comes to water usage.
1. Turn the Water Off When Brushing Teeth
Keeping a cup by your bathroom sink is good because you can fill the cup with water and get your toothbrush wet. You can rinse your mouth and then rinse your toothbrush with the water in the cup. This saves you from having to run the water again.
2. Regularly Inspect for Leaks
Leaks from the plumbing in your home can happen at any time. It is important to designate a time every week or two that you walk your home and property to inspect for water leaks.
3. Don’t Run Water While Washing Produce
While washing fruits and vegetables, put water in a large bowl and rinse them in the bowl instead of running water. Rinsing this way can help save many gallons of water per month.
4. Landscape With Plants That Need Less Water
Drought-resistant plants are great for making your yard look good, and you don’t have to spend a lot on watering them. You can also put in rocks for part of your landscaping, cutting out the amount of grass you have to water.
5. Take Baths
Taking long showers means that gallons of water are wasted every day. You can limit water consumption by turning off the water when you wash and then turning it back on to rinse. You can also fill the tub part way and then take a bath instead of a shower. Even if you only take a bath part of the time, you will end up conserving water.
