Water Conservation Tips to Consider for Your Home

We spend our daily lives at home using water to do the dishes, take a bath or shower, flush the toilet, and brush our teeth. In fact, these indoor, routine activities account for the largest fraction of water usage in homes. While we often don’t mind paying for it, it would take an effort from all of us to reduce usage as much as possible. Maximizing water efficiency, after all, is necessary so that we don’t lose this basic need in the near future.

Handyman Connection® of Mason, home of your local home improvement pros, discusses ways you can conserve water at home.

Turn Off the Tap

Whenever we brush our teeth, make it a habit to turn off the faucet. The same must be done when we fill up a bucket, making sure not to let the water overflowing. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this simple practice helps save you as much as 3,000 gallons every year.

Dealing With a Drippy Faucet

A dripping faucet may seem like nothing to you, but it contributes to water wastage when left unattended for a long time. While having it repaired or replaced would be an ideal solution for this, you can instead invest in an aerator. It is a simple device you screw onto the tip of the faucet and is considered the most cost-effective water conservation measure you can ever take.

Invest in Water-Efficiency Fixtures

When you replace old, inefficient toilets and showerheads with better, efficient ones, you take part in saving billions of gallons of water. Today’s bathroom fixtures are manufactured in accordance with the specifications set forth by the Energy Policy Act of 1994, which means you don’t have to worry about their efficiency, performance and safety.

You need a pro to have such fixtures installed. For your plumbing needs, turn to Handyman Connection of Mason.
