Proven Ways To Conserve Water This Season

Posted April 19, 2016

Did you know that the average person uses about 80 - 100 gallons of water each day? At first glance, this may not seem possible, but take a second to think about how many times you flush the toilet and run the faucet and how much time you spend in the shower. It all adds up, but there a few key ways you can cut down on water consumption this season: 

1. How old is your toilet? If it’s more than 10 years, chances are it’s not as efficient as models on the market today. Shop around for low-flow toilets and fixtures, and you’ll be amazed at how much you can save. 

2. Have an in-ground sprinkler system? Take note of temperatures outside and seasonal weather patterns. They often change each month, so be sure to adjust your watering schedule to match. 

3. Looking for a more efficient way to water plants and trees? Have a plumber re-route your greywater to areas that need it most. 

4. Don’t forget to check outdoor hoses, faucets, and sprinklers for leaks. It’s much easier for homeowners to spot a leak outdoors. 

5. Using the hose outside to power a sprinkler or water plants? Set a timer in the kitchen so you’re reminded to turn it off in a reasonable period.

Overwatering does more damage to flowers and plants than underwatering. Outdoor leaks can really drive up your water bill if left unattended, and sometimes, they can be very tricky. Call on the experts at ABC Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, Cooling, and Electric to get them fixed quickly and efficiently so you can enjoy your time outdoors this season.
