As water conservation becomes increasingly vital, it’s important that we all do our part to use less water. Does your household have a strategy for water conservation? If not, perhaps it’s time to establish one. Not only will you contribute to the conservation of our planet’s limited fresh water, but you’ll also save yourself money. Give these water conservation tips a try to reduce your household’s water use.
Indoor Water Conservation
Repair Drips, Leaks, & Running Toilets
You may not be concerned with a leaky kitchen or bathroom faucet, but you could be wasting gallons of water a day from this incessant dripping. Toilets that run continuously can also waste hundreds of gallons of water a day.
Turn Off Water When Not In Use
Turn off the water when possible while doing daily tasks such as brushing your teeth and taking a shower. You can save water by turning it off after you wet your toothbrush and while you wash your body in the shower.
Prepare Cold Drinking Water
Rather than running your tap water while waiting for it to get cold, keep a bottle or pitcher of tap water in the fridge. That way, you already have cold drinking water when you need it, and there’s no need to waste water.
Outdoor Water Conservation
Water At The Proper Time
The best time to water is in the morning to avoid excessive evaporation. Also avoid watering when it’s windy outside because your sprinklers will not be on target, and the water will evaporate quicker.
Properly Zone Your Sprinklers
Having a properly zoned and installed sprinkler system can save you water by ensuring the most efficient water use and water drainage systems.
