It is costly to buy a house. Water bills are one of the most expensive expenses. You can reduce your water bills by doing a few simple things to make money more productive.
STORE DRINKING WATER INSIDE THE REFRIGERATOR
Instead of running your tap to get cold water, you can use a pitcher to store it in the fridge. This will save water, and make it more refreshing.
SHOWERS ARE AVAILABLE
Limit your time in the shower to 5 minutes. This will ensure that you get as clean as possible and help to save thousands of gallons per year. This simple change will save you at least $100 per year for each person in your household.
SHOWER HEADS LOW-FLOW
All bathrooms should have low-flow shower heads. This will reduce water consumption by up to half. This can also help you save money on your gas and electricity bills.
DO FULL LAUNDRY AND DISHES
Before you run your dishwasher, fill it as full as possible. This will reduce the amount of water you use, and it will last longer. When you have to wash clothes, do the same.
STOP HAND-WASHING DIISHES
Contrary to popular belief hand-washing dishes requires more water than modern dishwashers. Simply scrape the dishes and put them in the dishwasher.
FAUCET AERATORS ARE SUITABLE
Faucet aerators can be purchased that fit into faucets’ bottoms. This allows for a reduction in water flow and pressure. Some faucets even come with a swivel, which allows you to point water exactly where you want. Aerators are often pre-installed on new faucets.
HEAT WATER IN A ELECTRIC KITTLE
To save water, heat water in an electric kettle. This will save all water wasted waiting for hot water from the tap.
