Ways to Save Water in Your Home

Water is obviously an absolute necessity when it comes to resources in your home. Not only does it play a major role in keeping your home and body clean and hygienic, but it is absolutely necessary to keep your body functioning, alive and well, at the biological level. Knowing all of this doesn’t make it any less irksome to see a very high water bill come through, however. But you can’t go without water, so what can you do, right?

Wrong. There is plenty that you can be doing to reduce your water costs, and the main method is right there in what we just said: reduce! Obviously you’re going to continue to use water in your home. That is never going to change. But you want to be sure that you are using water in a smart and thoughtful manner. Here are some helpful tips from the plumbers in Las Vegas that you know you can trust. Sunny Plumbers!

Use a Faucet Aerator

This is one of the simplest ways in which you can start to scale back water usage in your home. The best part? Once that aerator is in place, you’re probably never really going to think about it again. The fact is that for most applications in your home, a full draft from the faucet is more than you really need.

A faucet aerator basically just attaches to the faucet in question—we recommend installation at all faucets—and allows for the mixing of air and the water coming from the faucet. That means that you’re going to be using less water, while still having access to the water that you need for cleaning up, brushing teeth, washing hair, etc. Keep it simple, keep it effective. Aerate!

Run Water  Only When Using Water

Bad habits can be tough to break. Even tougher to break are bad habits on behalf of others in your home. We cannot stress this one enough, though. You need to use the water in your home only when you’re actually using it! What does that mean?

It means that you don’t keep the water running when you’re brushing your teeth, or when you’re scrubbing pots and pans. Sure, the shower can be soothing—but when you’re done cleaning up, don’t just stand there soaking in the atmosphere! Again, a little bit of conservation can really go a long way when it comes to keeping your water bill manageable.

When Replacing Equipment, Keep Conservation in Mind

We’re not suggesting that you need to rip out all of your plumbing fixtures right now, especially when they’re not that old and they’re functioning just fine. Keep the matter of conservation in mind moving forward, though. From low-flow toilets to front-loading washing machines, there are a lot of appliances and fixtures out there ready and willing to do most of the work for you when it comes to cutting back on your water consumption. If you’re in the market for new systems or appliances, just let us know!

    I have been with Goettl Air in Tucson for years and have always had complete confidence in their maintenance service.
