We could all do a little more to curb our water usage, whether we’re motivated by concern for the environment or a desire to shrink our water bills. Here are five places around the house where you could save some water:
|1) Washing machine.|
|Many machines allow you to choose a load size, and then the machine fills with a corresponding amount of water. Shopping for a new model? Select one that’s Energy Star certified.
|Again, look for the Energy Star certification, but also make sure the appliance offers a light wash option, which uses less water. New dishwasher not in the cards? Only run yours when full to save on water.
|Commodes with the WaterSense label use 60 percent less water per flush than traditional toilets. On older models, check to make sure the flapper closes properly, a common source of water leaks.
|For a fast fix, take shorter showers in lieu of baths. A low-flow showerhead can up the ante, reducing both your water bill and electric bill (because there’s less water to heat).
|Automated sprinkler systems allow you to program a schedule based on local watering restrictions. Models with Wi-Fi connectivity can adjust that schedule based on weather forecasts.|
