Conserve Water

3 Ways to Conserve Water in Your Home

February 15, 2020

Saving water helps the environment by conserving natural resources. It also extends your septic system’s life and lowers your water bills. You can save power by using less hot water as well. To conserve water in your Myersville, Maryland, home, you should look for leaks, use low-flow fixtures and upgrade your appliances.

Look for Leaks

Leaks could increase your utility costs and lead to water damage or biological growth from excess moisture. Even a minor issue like a continuously running toilet could waste thousands of gallons of water per year. If you notice a dripping faucet, wet spots underneath a sink, bad smells, a sudden increase in your bills or other issues, you should have your plumbing inspected and repaired by a professional. That way, you can keep problems from getting bigger and more expensive.

Use Low-Flow Fixtures

Faucet aerators add air to your water to make the pressure seem higher. They help you use less water when you complete routine tasks like washing your hands. Low-flow showerheads are available, and you can add a valve that controls the flow of the water. These valves allow you to slow or stop the flow of water while still keeping it warm.

Upgrade Your Appliances

Washing your dishes in the sink takes more water than using a dishwasher. If your home doesn’t have a dishwasher, you can save water and time doing your dishes by installing one. Upgrading an older model can conserve water as well. Modern dishwashers can clean dirty plates easily, so there’s no need to rinse them in the sink.

You should also consider replacing older washing machines and water heaters. New appliances can save water, prevent sudden breakdowns and increase the value of your home.
