Summer is right around the corner which means homeowners are sure to see an increase in the amount of water they use as well as their water bills. Certainly, water is an essential part of all of our lives. Though often times we take our water supply for granted, it is important that we give focus to water conservation regularly, and especially during the hot summer months. Here at Steve Mull Plumbing we take a great deal of pride in providing all our valued clients with not only the highest quality plumbing products and services, but with useful insight and important tips on a number of topics with conserving water being near to the top of that list.
TIPS ON HOW YOU CAN SAVE WATER THIS SUMMER
Maintaining your plumbing system and ensuring that leaks and other plumbing issues are identified and repaired immediately will most assuredly contribute to your home’s water efficiency. Here at Steve Mull Plumbing we encourage our clients to utilize green concepts that can help to conserve water and save on monthly energy cost as well. To help our clients practice efficient water conservation we have put together a list of useful tips to help minimize the amount of water used.
- · The Backyard Pool – Water in a pool evaporates over time requiring pool owners to replenish the levels of water regularly. Investing in a pool cover will reduce the evaporation of the pool water and minimize the excess water supply, you will need to use to keep your pool at an appropriate level to allow for full functionality.
- · Vehicle Washing – Many people think that washing their vehicles at home is a way to save money. However, the cost of a car wash is incredibly less than the cost of your home water bill when you routinely wash your vehicle every week. In addition, using the water at home to wash your vehicles does not contribute to water conservation but rather to increased water bills.
- · Lawn Hoses and Sprinklers – For those of us who take a great deal of pride in our home landscaping, watering the lawn and setting the sprinkler is something we simply cannot imagine going without. With that said, the ground is able to absorb water a whole lot easier in the early morning hours and at dusk, which indicates that these are the best times to use a hose or sprinkler to add to the health and look of your lawn. At these times of the day, you will find that you use less water because of the easier ground absorption.
- · Showers not Baths – The average bath uses between 30 and 50 gallons of water, whereas a shower typically uses a mere 20 gallons. With that said, taking showers during the hot summer months will most definitely contribute to water conservation even though many people feel that a long, hot drawn bubble bath can be a whole lot more relaxing.
