How To Save Water At Home

How to save water at homeConserving water should now be a priority, given that we’re now heading into the warmer months and that some areas are more susceptible to drought. Conserving water also has environmental benefits and can also help you save money on your utility costs.

So what can you do to save water? Here are some tips on how to save water at home.

Check for leaks

The first step to saving water is to make sure that your plumbing fixtures are free from leaks. Your fixtures should include your taps and toilets, sprinkler systems, water heaters, and your pipes. A small leak can cause astronomical water waste over time and can cause more damage when left unattended.

Replace old outdated plumbing fixtures

Replacing your old plumbing fixtures can also help you save water, especially if these fixtures are the ones causing the leaks. With age, plumbing fixtures don’t have the same integrity as they used to back when they were still brand new. An old tap that’s been around for 10 years may not be as effective as keeping water in as compared to a brand new tap.

Install low flow aerators

Low flow aerators can also be alternatives to replacing your old taps and shower heads if you want to save water. A low flow aerator reduces the amount of water without sacrificing water pressure.

Replace existing toilets with HET toilets

High efficiency toilets or HET toilets are great for saving water around the house. A lot of the older toilets use up to 26 litres of water to flush, which is far less efficient than the more modern efficient counterparts, which only use up to 7 litres of water per flush. Replacing your toilets with HET toilets can help you save money on your water bills.

Other ways to save water around the house:

  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean the yard.
  • Set timers on sprinkler systems to run in the cooler hours of the morning so more water is absorbed instead of evaporating.
  • Plant plants that require less or no water.
  • Don’t leave the hose running when washing your car.
