Ways to Conserve Water Around Your Home
Look around your Orlando home and quickly calculate how much water your family uses. Your household could be wasting hundreds upon gallons of water each day if your faucets leak, your washer is only half-full, or you hear water running at night. Clog Kings Plumbing is committed to saving you money and being more environmentally conscious. We can help you conserve water in your home.
Your family can do many things to conserve water in your home.
Disable the Faucet
Eight gallons of water are lost each day by leaving the water on while you brush your teeth. By turning off the water faucet when you brush your teeth or shave, you can save 200 gallons each month.
Shower over Bath
An average bath can use up to 70 gallons (depending on the size of the tub), while a shower only uses 10 to 25 Gallons. A shower can be more efficient than a bath, saving hundreds of gallons each month. To reduce your water consumption, limit how long you run the water before you start the shower.
Start a family tradition that is environmentally friendly by creating a compost pile instead of throwing food scraps in the garbage disposal. This will not only reduce the use of your garbage disposal (thus, the water required to run it), but it can also help to reduce the amount of trash that your family throws away. Your compost pile will encourage the growth of your green thumb, improve your plant’s nutrition, and lower your carbon footprint.
Full loads of laundry or dishes will maximize the dishwasher’s efficiency and decrease water consumption. No matter how full your dishwasher is, it will only use a certain amount of water.
It is best to avoid watering lawns and other outdoor plants in the heat of summer. Not only will it cause damage to your greenery but it will also make it more difficult to water your lawn. Install rain sensors to your irrigation system, and water your lawn in cooler hours.
Rain barrels are also a great way for families to collect rainwater and use it for their outdoor plants.
You can also save energy by washing clothes in cold water.
