The Most Important Tips for Summer Water Conservation

Water Conservation Methods CaliforniaIt’s good for the environment and your wallet to conserve as much water in the home as possible. To find out more about how to do this successfully, read on!

Check for Leaks

Shockingly, a small drip from a faucet can, in fact, waste up to 20 gallons of water per day. If you end up having a larger leak, you can lose much more – sometimes up to a couple hundred gallons.

Don’t Forget To Check Your Toilets for Leaks

Here’s a trick that will allow you to establish if your toilet is leaking – put a little food coloring in your toilet tank and, if without flushing, the color begins to appear in the bowl within 30 minutes, you have a leak that should be repaired immediately.

Take Shorter Showers

One sure-fire way to cut down on water usage is to take shorter showers. Many of us are guilty of lingering in the shower longer than is actually required. You’ll be surprised as to how much this one change can reduce your bill as a four-minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons of water.

Another thing to note is that there is no need to keep the water running while brushing your teeth. Just wet your brush and fill a glass for mouth rinsing or turn the faucet back on once you’ve brushed.

Wait Until You Have Full Loads

Automatic dishwashers and clothes washers should be fully loaded for optimum water conservation. You end up using a lot of water when you use only half-full machines.
