Conserving water saves you money on utility bills and protects the environment. It is especially important during drought conditions. Here are 6 easy ways to use less water.

1. Make Smart Purchases

Whenever you purchase new appliances and fixtures, choose ones that use less water. Appliances with the EnergyStar and WaterSense labels are usually designed to conserve water.

2. Find And Repair Leaks

Not everyone can replace all their appliances, but you can make sure your current appliances and fixtures aren’t wasting extra water. A dripping faucet can waste gallons of water every day. Faucets are usually simple to repair. Check your toilets, and pipes for leaks as well.

3. Take Shorter Showers

Showering uses gallons of water every minute. Shortening your shower by just a few minutes saves a lot of water. Here are a few tips for shortening your showers:

·         Set a timer so you don’t lose track of time

·         Multitask—wash your arms and legs while you let the conditioner sit in your hair

·         Take colder showers so it is less tempting to stay in the warm water

4. Don’t Use Running Water While Shaving

When you shave, fill the sink with a few inches of water. Use this to rinse your razor instead of leaving the water running.

5. Install Low-Flow Showerheads

Installing a low-flow showerhead is a cheap and easy way to conserve water. Most showerheads are easy to install, and a low-flow one will save gallons of water every day.

6. Put Aerators On Your Faucets

Aerators reduce the flow of water coming out of your faucet. Installing aerators is one of the cheapest and easiest ways you can save water around the home.

Conserving water will protect the environment and reduce your utility bills. It is an important part of being a responsible homeowner—especially in drought conditions. Responsible home owners also invest in insurance, visit Best Insurance to learn more about taking care of your home.
