You can be a little more prepared when it comes to your water bill by looking at how professional plumbers save money on their water bill.
Shower Instead of Taking Baths
A bath can be quite a relaxing, tranquil experience. On the other hand, if saving money is on your to-do list, it’s probably time to make the switch to showers instead. If you want to start building that emergency fund, then it’s time to swap out the baths and take some showers. Your wallet will thank you.
Use Greywater to Water Your Plants
Collecting your wastewater or greywater in your home is an awesome way to not only save money on your water bill but also be a little nicer to the environment.
You can collect greywater by washing your fruits and veggies in a bowl in the sink, and keep the water from the bowl. You can also do it by scooping your leftover water from your baths and collecting water from your faucet while running hot water for a shower. These are all useful ways to collect greywater.
Check Your Home for Leaks
Leaks in the house are a very messy and expensive pain. The good news is, they certainly can be avoided if you take these steps to check for leaks.
- Listen for running toilets. Sometimes the flappers get loose, or break.
- Always check for surface water around your faucets and pipes. A dripping faucet can cost you an extra 1,000 gallons of water a year.
- You can do a whole home check by shutting all your water for 15 minutes. Monitor the meter reading. If it jumps, there may be a hidden leak.
Take Your Car to a Carwash
Spending a few dollars every couple of weeks at the local car wash will ultimately save you cash in the long run. Home car washes are often more expensive because it uses approximately 120 gallons of water per wash. If you have to wash more than one car, that’s double! Taking your car to a carwash uses only about 20 gallons, which will save you money on your water bill.
