Do you want to save water once the winter season comes to an end? Well, you are lucky because there are many ways you can save water in your home, save on water bills, and help the environment. Here are some of the best tips for water saving in spring.
Fixing All Leaky Faucets
Winter is especially hard on your plumbing system, and it can cause your faucets to leak. A small leak doesn’t sound so bad, right? But the truth is, even a small leak can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water per year! So, by fixing the leaking faucets, you can easily save hundreds of gallons of water during spring.
Take Shorter Showers
If you are using a standard shower, you are using around 2.5 gallons of water every minute. So, for a 10-minute shower, you end up using 25 gallons of water, which is a lot. Instead, the best shower water-saving tip in spring is to get low-flow showerheads that throttle water flow. Don’t worry. A low-flow shower will not affect your shower experience.
Use Less Water During Laundry
One of the biggest causes of water wastage in modern homes is the washing machine as it uses a lot of water even to wash a few pieces of clothes. So, instead of using the washing machine with a low load, try using the machine when you have enough clothing for a full laundry load. This can save a lot of water, and you don’t have to worry about laundry every day, too!
Be Smart with Toilets
There are two ways of toilet water saving in spring that you can use. The first tip to save a lot of water is to place a small brick in your flush tank; doing this reduces the amount of water getting collected into your flush tank, reducing the amount of water being flushed. Don’t worry; doing so will not affect the toilet’s ability to flush down waste.
If you don’t mind spending a little money, we at Capital Plumbing can even help you install a smart toilet in your home. Smart toilets can sense the water required for flushing, saving a lot of water over time. Plus, smart toilets have many other features like night lights, automatic flushing, heated seat, etc., which is always a plus.
