How to Conserve WaterConserving water is something that is important to everyone, and sometimes, especially in Texas, in can be a summertime essential. When droughts hit and water is restricted, water conservation techniques can be a lifesaver.

There are several easy things you can do to conserve water, thereby saving yourself money and energy. We at Pratt Plumbing suggest the following tips.

 

1. Fix Leaks Quickly

If you have a leak, it will cost you dearly. Early leak detection is essential to conserving energy and water. If you notice your water bill rising, get someone out there to take care of it as soon as possible—plumbing repair is always worth it in the long run.

2. Use Water-Saving Shower Heads

Showers are good for water conservation when compared to baths, but you can do even better by installing a water-saving shower head in all of your bathrooms. These reduce the amount of water used during a shower. Aim for one that uses under 2.5 gallons a minute, and you and your wallet will be glad you made the switch.

3. Fill Up the Sink

If you don’t have an automatic dishwasher or prefer to do your dishwashing by hand, it can seem so much easier to just run the water and scrub the dishes quickly. However, filling up the sink with hot, soapy water is much more efficient. You use less water this way and make better use of the water that’s there.

4. Water Your Lawn in the Morning

If you water your lawn later in the day, the water won’t make it very far without getting evaporated. Watering when the temperatures are low, like in the early morning or after the sun has gone down for the evening, helps you waste less and keep your grass healthier.

5. Fully Load Your Appliances

Only run your dishwasher and washing machine when you have a full load. If you run a load that’s only half full, you’ll just have to run it twice for the same amount of work. That’s a waste of water!

You will be surprised how much water you can save just by following these tips. In fact, you’ll start to notice it as soon as your first water bill comes in—we guarantee it will get lower and lower!
