Changing up your routine water practices in small ways can greatly contribute to water conservation in your home. These tips from your West Palm Beach FL plumber can also significantly reduce your monthly water costs.
Cutting down on time spent in the shower or bath by a few minutes every day can cut water consumption greatly. See what you are able to cut out of your shower routine that can help you get done more quickly.
Turn the faucet on only when you need to rinse your toothbrush or clean your razor blades when brushing your teeth or shaving.
Make sure to fill your dish washer and washing machine to capacity before running a load. Cutting down on the number of loads you run will help conserve water and energy, cutting down on your monthly bill.
Check your home for leaky faucets, running toilets, and hoses or leaking spigots outside. Consistent running or dripping water can add up quickly and exponentially.
Pay attention to where your sprinkler heads spray water. Out of alignment spray heads can waste water on the cement instead of watering the grass for which it was installed.
