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.

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! Our team are experts in plumbing system installation.

My technician Jorge (George) Gutierrez was out today performing the a/c system check. He did a fabulous job and identified significant issues and concerns for the longevity of my current 12 year old system. He was very knowledgeable and helpful on what my options are and in the end I’ll be getting a new system instead of worrying about the current system failing in our extremely hot temperatures. He was very respectful of my home and my dog was ecstatic to meet him.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
