Spring has made its presence known, which means summer is right around the corner. Surely, we all recognize that water is an important part of everyone’s life. However, isn’t it true that so many people simply take it for granted. In today’s environment certainly water is a precious commodity that we all need to do our part to conserve. Conserving water is something the folks here at Steve Mull Plumbing know all about.
We know and fully understand the importance of Conserving water and we invest a great deal of time in doing just that by identifying and repairing leaks and even installing low flow fixtures in the homes of many of our valued Lebanon clients. Further, we make every effort to provide our clients with ‘green’ concepts and suggestions that not only help conserve water, but also help to save on energy costs as well. With that said, we have put together these useful tips for Conserving water this spring and summer.
- Watering your yard – Choose morning or evening hours to water your lawn since the outdoor air is cooler than it is in the morning and the water is able to soak into the ground much better.
- Pool time – Covering and uncovering your family pool may be a bit of work and even a bit challenging, but when you keep the water from evaporating you reduce the amount of water needed to keep it fully functional and ready for those long hot months of swimming and summer fun.
- Dishwasher use – If you don’t already have one, then perhaps it’s time you invest in an energy star rated dishwasher that requires only the use of three gallons of water to get all those dishes clean. Just as a matter of information, washing dishes by hand can actually use near to 25 gallons of water. So, like we said, perhaps it is time to invest in that long-awaited new dishwasher.
- Washing your car – If you are used to washing your vehicle at home with your garden hose, then surely you know the extent of the water you are using. Believe it or not, but car washes nowadays use only 40 gallons of water, which, as you can imagine, is much less than the gallons you would use at home in the driveway.
- Bath or shower time – Most people are unaware that it takes near to 30-50 gallons of water to fill your bathtub yet only an average of 20 gallons to take a shower. Though it is so much more relaxing to sit and soak in a long hot bath, taking showers this summer will certainly help to conserve large amounts of water.
- A thrifty rain barrel – If you are all about going green, then here’s a practical fun tip for Conserving water. Put a rain barrel or other bucket under your gutter and then reuse the water for your garden or other outdoor landscaping needs.
