Top Five Tips for Saving Water in Your Home

Las Vegas PlumberEvery household in the United States spends an average of $500 per year on water and sewer bills. If you apply a few simple changes to improve the efficiency of your water use, you could save as much as $170 per year.

If every household could install water-efficient appliances, then the country can save more than 3 trillion gallons of water, which translates to about $18 billion annually. The following tips will help you to reduce your water use significantly.

1. Check for leaks in pipes and faucets

Small drips from a cracked faucet washer can waste up to 20 gallons of water per day, whereas larger leaks can cause loss of hundreds of gallons of water.

2. Avoid using the toilet as a waste basket or ash tray

When you flush unwanted waste down your toilet, you lose between five and eight gallons of water.

3. Inspect your toilet for leakage

To find out if your toilet is leaking put a colored substance such as ink or food color into the toilet tank. If you see the color in the toilet basin after 20 to 30 minutes, you most probably have a leaking toilet. Most toilet replacement parts are less expensive and are easy to install.

4. Check for hidden leaks using a water meter

Read your house water meter in two-hour intervals when you are not using the water. If the reading is not constant, you may be having a hidden leak.

5. Install a water-efficient toilet

A dual-flush toilet has a button that gives you the option of choosing how much water is used when you flush the toilet. This type of toilet can use between four and six liters of water compared to the traditional flush systems that can use up to 13 liters on a single flush.

6. Take shorter showers Las Vegas Water Conservation

Any more time you spend in the shower with the water running, you lose more water. Thus, only turn on the water when you are ready to use it to wash down soap or rinse your body, then spend less time during your showers.

Saving water in your house by installing water-efficient appliances and using water in an efficient manner will reduce your water bills, and it will also help the country to conserve one of our primary natural resources. Therefore use water wisely by applying the above tips.
