Lower Your Water Bills With These 4 Improvements
Worried about your water bill being too high but reluctant to go for any expensive changes? Don’t worry, you don’t have to pay top dollar to save money. Not everyone can immediately drop the cash for a huge plumbing job.
Using these 4 methods, you can fix that water bill without making a dent in your wallet.
Fix leaky faucets
How much does a faucet leaking a drop of water per second cost you? Around 3000 gallons; which is equivalent to 180 showers per year. You can save a lot of water and money by just a run down to the local hardware store and getting replacement parts for the fixture.
Your local plumber would also be more than glad to help you out.
Run full loads of laundry
Typically, you think you’d be saving up by running your washing machine with less load, washing clothes very selectively to save up. You’d be very wrong. It’s efficient to run full loads, putting in the maximum capacity that your washing machine supports, using up the least amount of water than multiple small washes.
Limit your showers
The average shower lasts around 7.8 minutes and costs you around 59.8 liters. Yeah, let that sink in. You’re better off limiting your showers, using the least amount possible while still managing to keep yourself nice and tidy. Look into fixing your showerhead if it has a leak as well, as it can silently cost you a lot of water without you ever utilizing that water for good use.
Wash dishes efficiently
Dishwashers are much more efficient than washing dishes by hand. As they use little water than a flowing stream from the faucet, you end up losing less water when you use the dishwasher. If you don’t have a dishwasher, you should keep all your dishes in the sink and then fill it up rather than keep the tap on and lose more water than you need to do the cleaning.
