Did you know that a household’s single biggest water consumption is usually its toilet and bathroom systems? According to EnergyStar, over 25% of water is wasted due to inefficient plumbing and leaky pipes. With the unpredictable weather over the last few years, it is critical to conserve resources, not just for the environment but also for your wallet. The cost of utilities, particularly clean water, has never been higher in Hawaii, which means homeowners across the islands need to take the proper steps and conserve.
Fast Rooter Plumbing is Oahu’s leading plumbing company offering reliable services like sink repair, broken pipes repair, and toilet repair. Having these simple repairs done will add up to save you tons of water and radically reduce your bill each year.
Here are a few additional tips to cut your home water waste and save you money:
- Replace older toilets with modern and higher efficiency models. Switching just one toilet in your home will save up to five gallons per flush.
- Take shorter showers. While this seems obvious, it is easy to lose track of time in the shower. Set a timer or play a song during your next shower. When the timer goes off or the song is over, turn off your shower head. Additionally, stop the water while you lather soap and shampoo. Only turn on the faucet to rinse. This will save you upwards to five gallons per minute!
- Do not rinse your dishes before loading them into the dishwasher. Your dishwasher’s detergent performers better when there is food on the dishes. This will save upwards of three gallons per minute.
Incorporating these simple tips into your daily household routine will eliminate water waste and drastically lower your utilities bill.
