3 Plumbing Tips to Help You Conserve More Water , Kalispell, Montana

Throughout the summer season, many households increase their water usage. From watering plants in the hottest part of the day to taking long showers, these habits can increase your water bill and use up a valuable resource. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can change your habits and conserve water during these hot months. Here’s a more detailed look at a few plumbing tips to help you get started.

Top Plumbing Tips on How to Conserve Water This Summer

1. Minimize Evaporation

Water is commonly used outside of the home to fill pools or water plants. Fortunately, conserving water doesn’t mean you have to give up these beautiful features. Instead, turn on your sprinklers only during the mornings or evenings, as the sun is more likely to cause water to evaporate quickly when it’s overhead in the afternoon. You should also place a cover over the pool when not in use to prevent the water from evaporating over time.

2. Decrease Usage

plumbingMonitor how much water you use and try to trim it down as much as possible. Use a timer to ensure your sprinklers don’t run longer than necessary. Take shorter showers and reuse towels to lessen the amount of water necessary for laundry. Plus, dishwashers tend to be more efficient than hand washing your dishes, so don’t hesitate to rely on this time-saving appliance.

3. Inspect Your Pipes & Faucets

Over time, pipes and faucets can develop leaks. Because they are often hidden in walls, these leaks can persist for months or even years without you even realizing it. That’s why you should have your plumbing system inspected at least once per year. An inspection will ensure your system is running efficiently and not wasting precious water.
