Easy Ways to Save Money on Your Water Bill

saving money on your water billThe desire to save money on personal expenses is a common one. Many have already cut back on excess spending by reducing their entertainment budget, clipping coupons for savings at the grocery store and more. However, when it comes to your water bill, you may be stymied about how to save money on this expense. After all, you have to use a certain amount of water for cleaning your house and laundry, for bathing, for using the toilet and more. While the use of water inside your home is necessary, you can make a few easy changes to reduce how much water is used. The following tips can help you to save money on your water bill without drastically changing the convenient use of water in your home. Change Your Bathing Habits When you bathe, you have the choice to take a shower or a bath. The average bathtub requires about 35 gallons of water to fill it, and this is even greater if you have a garden tub. A shower will use considerably less water, and you can enjoy the same clean results. You can make a quick change to your shower head for additional savings. By replacing your current shower head with a low flow shower head, you can save as much as three gallons of water for each minute you are in the shower. Make Toilet Repairs and Upgrades The toilet is another common source of water use. A toilet can use water and thus cost you money even when it is not in use. If you hear your toilet bowl leaking consistently or running on and off when nobody has used it recently, this is a sure sign that it needs to be serviced. Servicing your toilet as needed can prevent the unnecessary waste of water. Another way to save money is to limit the amount of water that is used with each flush. Consider installing low flow toilets if possible. If you cannot afford to replace your toilets, you can also install a fill cycle diverter in your tank. This can save as much as a half a gallon of water per flush. You may be able to perform some of these tasks on your own, or you can call a plumber to your home for assistance. Many plumbing service professionals can help you to identify additional ways to reduce water consumption when they visit your home, and this can help you to lower your home’s water bill too
