Are you looking for ways to save up for your dream summer vacation? Lowering your water bill can help your family save a lot of extra cash. Unfortunately, summer is the season when you need water the most. A combination of a dry lawn, kids who are out of school all day, swimming pool maintenance and weekend cookouts can really put a strain on your plumbing system, and your wallet. At 1-800-Plumber of CT, we enjoy helping our Connecticut home and business owners find new ways to conserve water. Here are some tips and tricks on how you can reduce your water waste this summer.
Install a Water Usage Monitor
One of the best ways to improve your water efficiency is to know how much you’re using. While you can take an occasional glance at your water meter, this won’t give you the in-depth analysis needed to make the best decisions. A smart water usage monitor can tell you exactly how much water you’re consuming, and where the water is being used. Best of all, you can access this information from anywhere in the world via smart phone or tablet.
Even minor water leaks can create unnecessary spikes in your utility costs. To make matters worse, if these leaks are left hidden or in disrepair long term, they can cause extensive water damage, toxic mold growth and sewage exposure. All these issues can lead to very expensive renovation costs. Thankfully, this problem can be bypassed altogether by scheduling an annual plumbing inspection and leak detection service. A certified plumber has the specialized tools needed to pinpoint the exact source of the leak, even if they are in a hidden location.
Use a Low Flow Showerheads and Faucet Aerators
Swap out your old showerheads with modern, water saving low flow models. You can also upgrade your kitchen and bathroom sink faucets with ecofriendly versions or install an aerator to keep water usage at a minimum.
Make Wise Choices About Watering the Lawn
Every homeowner wants a lush, green lawn. Unfortunately, the intense heat of the summer sun encourages evaporation, which means most of the water won’t reach the roots of your grass, trees or landscaping plants. If you really want to maximize your efforts, choose a smart sprinkler system that targets the areas that need water most. Also, be sure to only water your yard in the early morning or late evening, when you don’t have to worry about direct sunlight.
Use a Cover on Your Pool or Hot Tub
One of the best parts about summer is getting a chance to splash around in the pool, or enjoy a relaxing evening in the hot tub. Yet pools and spas can waste a lot of water. Reserve as many of those precious drops as possible by using a cover when not in use. Doing so will keep the water from evaporating too rapidly.
