What are the 4 ways to improve water use in your home

Water is one of the most important human needs. Unfortunately, there are still some countries waterwhere summer and drought go hand in hand. People have to travel miles in order to get water.

Improving water use in your home can be very helpful for your monthly bottom line. If you make some steps towards efficiency you can see your monthly utility bill shrink and your quality of life increase. Here is how:

 

Sewer Line Cleaning

Keep your sewer line cleaned at all times. Don’t treat your toilet as a waste bin or worst as an ashtray. Don’t use a toilet to flush a cigarette butt, facial tissue, hair or any other small bit of trash that can clog up your sewerage line. It does not only produce bacteria, bad odor, but also five to seven gallons of water is wasted.

High-Efficiency Water Faucets

We all are aware that turning off the tap while we are brushing teeth saves water, but did you know you can actually save water with your tap on too. Isn’t the idea simply amazing?

High-efficiency water faucets (such as aerators) will not only help you save water but you would also be able to save money on water bills without sacrificing performance.

By retrofitting your washroom accessories and sink faucets you can save up to 30 percent more water. It’s a one-time investment that’s worth investing your money in; that will help you do your part in protecting our precious water resources.

High-Efficiency Water Heater

High-efficiency water heater needs to be installed in every household. Ask yourself when you turn on your hot water, how long do you have to wait until it heats up?

Now if you answered five minutes, two minutes or even if it takes just a minute, that still means you are wasting plenty of water, right? You are not only wasting water but also consuming energy that costs to heat your water.

High-efficiency water heaters are also pretty easy to maintain, they require low maintenance. They are more compact, tankless and hardly a size of a briefcase. They are made to run often; hence you wouldn’t need a technician’s help every now and then. It’s a pretty safe investment and you will notice a drastic change in your electricity bill for sure.

Insulating Pipes

Insulating your water pipes is an easy and inexpensive way to get hot water faster, avoiding wasting water, while it heats up. It will also prevent your pipes from freezing in the winters which will help heat water up faster.

Save Water, improve your home!
