Saving money is something we all want to do. When coming up with ways to lower expenses, you might not think about your water bill. Start saving money now with these four ways to conserve water at home…
Inspect your appliances. Look for leaks and drips, which have a tendency to pile up quickly over time. Toilets, faucets and dishwashers are most likely to spring leaks.
Take shorter showers. If you reduce the time you shower by just four minutes, you could save nearly 4,000 gallons of water per year! This can help you save as much as $100 on an annual basis, and will reduce other utility bills, including gas and electricity.
Don’t let the water run when brushing your teeth. Instead of using the running water to rinse your toothbrush or razor, just keep a cup of hot water next to you and dip it in every so often.
Don’t hand-wash dishes. Contrary to popular belief, it takes more water to hand-wash dishes than it takes to wash them in the dishwasher. In fact, you use 1/6 less water by running a full load in the dishwasher! When you are rinsing your dishes before they go in, don’t run the tap. Instead, fill up a container with water and rinse off all the excess from your dishes with that.
