Home Water Conservation

If you buy a newer home, most of the time you don’t need to worry about the water conservation level. If you purchase an older home, occasionally certain changes would have to be made to have your home become more conservative with water. Some of the changes discussed below are simple tips or ideas that can save any homeowner money and water! Other changes are inexpensive but reap bigger benefits in the long run.

Any homeowner should check faucets and pipes for leaks. A small faucet drip can waste up to twenty gallons of water a day. In turn, a larger drip or a larger leak can waste substantially more. Also, check for leaks in outdoor hoses as well. A water saving shower head is relatively inexpensive and easy for anyone to install. Low flow faucets use 2.5 gallons a minute rather than 5-10 gallons per minute. An easy way to try to conserve in the shower is to practice taking shorter ones.

Another way to conserve water is to insulate the water pipes in your home. This is pre slit foam pipe installation, very easy and inexpensive to do. By doing this, you will get hot water faster and in return avoid wasting water while the shower water heats up. Some ways to conserve water outside would be to group plants according to their watering needs. Putting a layer of mulch around trees, shrubs and plants reduces watering, slows water evaporation and helps retain moisture in the soil. These all contribute to less watering of the plants. Also, avoid over watering plants. It can diminish plant health.
