Did you know that an average household leak can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year? That’s an astonishing statistic if you ask us - it’s the same amount needed to do about 270 loads of laundry. Aside from finding and fixing leaks right away, here are a few other ways you can save water around your home this year:
Teach your children to close the faucet tightly after each use. A slow drip can adds up over time.
Running your washing machine or dishwasher when it’s only halfway full? Don’t. You can save up to 1,000 gallons of water each month by waiting until you have a full load.
Have an old toilet that runs all night long? Consider upgrading to a model with a WaterSense label. These are designed to conserve water with each flush.
Notice that your toilet’s flapper isn’t closing properly after each flush? This is a simple fix that can be completed by handy homeowners. As a result, you’ll save hundreds of gallons of water each year.
Shopping for a new ice maker for your kitchen or bar area? Consider and compare water usage between models.
