3 Tips for Conserving Water at Home, Somerset, Kentucky

Home water conservation has many benefits, from reducing your environmental impact to cutting back on your monthly utility bills. Even better, limiting your use may protect the health of your plumbing system, meaning you’ll be less likely to need the services of a plumber. Thankfully, there are some easy steps you can take to prevent waste. 

How to Use Less Water at Home

1. Don’t Run the Sink Needlessly

When you’re doing the dishes, shaving, or brushing your teeth, it’s tempting to leave the water running. However, this habit is a major water waster. Train yourself to turn the faucet on only when you truly need it. You’ll help the environment and save money on your water bill at the same time.

2. Fix Leaks

It’s estimated that in many households, leaky fixtures account for close to 10,000 gallons of wasted water each year. Instead of waiting to deal with this problem, call a plumber immediately so they can repair or replace the leaking faucet or pipe.

3. Update Your Shower Head

Older shower heads tend to be less efficient. Models that are several years old are more likely to leak when not in use. They’ll also use more gallons per minute when turned on. Newer shower heads provide improved efficiency without sacrificing water pressure. Look for products with WaterSense® labels to ensure your device conforms to EPA criteria. Your plumber will recommend an option that meets your needs.
