Tips for Conserving Water this Summer
It is finally summer! That can only mean one thing: you will be using your plumbing system more in an effort to stay cool. However, water is a precious resource that we must conserve. Below are some practical tips homeowners can use to conserve water this season.
- Take a quick shower instead of a long, indulgent bath.
- Don’t wash dishes by hand. Instead, wash them in the dishwasher.
- Remember that the toilet is not a trash can. Do not flush wipes, cotton swabs, tissues or feminine products.
- Have leaky or dripping faucets fixed as soon as possible.
- Hot water pipes should be insulated.
- Wash your clothes only when you have a full load of laundry.
- Make sure that sprinklers are watering your lawn and garden; not the driveway or street.
