Different Ways Homeowners Can Conserve Water This Earth Month

April Is Earth Month- Celebrate by Conserving More Water!

Conserving water is one thing that humans can do to help the planet. There is an endless number of ways that people can try to conserve water throughout the day, but the home is a great place to start. People in today’s world have never lived a day without indoor plumbing, which means most people don’t even realize just how much water they use daily. Just by changing a few daily habits, homeowners can save hundreds if not thousands of gallons of water per year. More importantly, these habit changes don’t cost homeowners a dime. In fact, saving water helps reduce monthly bill costs as well, so it’s a win-win. Below are three ways every homeowner can save water this Earth Month while spending little to no money!

Turn Off the Tap

Some habits are harder to break, and this might be one of them. It is so easy to leave the faucet turned on while brushing teeth or shaving their face. However, it is a habit that can waste a lot of water in just a few minutes. On the other hand, it is an excellent opportunity to conserve more water as well.

If homeowners try to create a habit of turning the water off while brushing their teeth and shaving, they will save roughly four gallons of water every single time. There is a good chance some large families would see a major difference in their monthly bill costs if everyone in the home participated in this new habit.

Take a Relaxing Bath

At first glance, it might seem like a bath uses more water than a shower, but the opposite is true. It is far easier to use more water during a shower than in a bath. When taking a bath, the water reaches a certain level, and then it is turned off. The water continuously flows during a shower, making it far easier to stand there under the warm water for longer than it takes to fill up a bathtub.

That said, if homeowners are willing to turn off the shower water while washing their hair and body, this is another way to conserve water. Most people would rather take a bath because the latter means standing in a shower without the water on, which doesn’t sound fun to anyone.

Have the Home Inspected For Leaks

Leak detection done is a service done by a plumbing professional. This is one tip that costs the homeowner money out of their own pocket, but it can really save them more money than the other two tips combined.

Leaks can happen anywhere in the plumbing system, and some leaks don’t become visible to the homeowner until the water eventually backs up into the home. If homeowners wait for this to happen, they will spend way more money trying to fix the pipes and home from water damage. Water leak detection prevents all of this from happening and gives the homeowner knowledge of the current condition of their plumbing system.

Other benefits of water leak detection:

  • Ensures problems are fixed before they become emergencies
  • Significantly reduces water bill costs
  • Reduces stress to the plumbing system
  • Saves the home from water damage
  • Prevents rust
  • Saves the planet
