Water conservation isn't just a responsibility for anyone who wants to help the planet—it’s also a great way to save money. So whether you are a conservationist or just enjoy keeping more of the money that you earn, read on to find out how to conserve water in the bathroom, or you can call your plumber company in Marietta for more tips.
Turn the Faucet Off
It is easy to let the water run and not think about it while you are doing your morning routine, but just a few habit changes can save you quite a bit of water and money over time. When you are brushing your teeth, don't let the water run, but only turn it on and off when necessary, while you are spitting and rinsing your brush. If you shave your face, then you can also save water during the process. You could fill the sink with the stopper or fill a bowl with warm water instead of letting the water run. Or you can always install a mirror in the shower and do your shaving in there, though you will need to wipe the mirror from condensation often.
Many people groan on the inside when they hear the term "low flow faucets." And the low flow faucets in the past left quite a bit to be desired, but the new ones are much more exciting and it is getting harder to feel the difference between a low flow and a normal flow faucet. These can save you 5 to 10 gallons of water per shower depending on how long you usually take. They are also very easy to install so you could do it yourself, though it is a fast and relatively low cost to have a plumber install them in your home.
Nix the Bath
Speaking of showering, one way to conserve water effectively is to take more of them and fewer baths. The typical bath will take up about 30 gallons of water, but if you shower for about 10 minutes, you can use about 25 gallons of water, or less depending on the flow of the faucet. Taking showers and limiting the time you spend taking them can really decrease your water bill, especially if you take showers every day or there are several people in your home.
