Practical Tips to Lower Your Home Water Bill

July 3, 2015 | Blog

Practical Tips to Lower Your Home Water BillReducing water use in your Corpus Christi home just makes good sense. Even in years of abundant rainfall, water resources in Texas should be conserved due to population growth throughout the state. Using less water also helps to reduce your water bill. Here are some simple ways to make a big dent in your bill.

Bathroom

  • Take showers instead of baths. Limit showers to five minutes. Using a low-flow, aerating shower head will not only reduce the flow of water, but it will also increase the pressure of the water as you shower so you can wash off soap and shampoo easily.
  • Check for plumbing and faucet leaks. Even a small leak can account for many wasted gallons of water over time. Leaks also corrode plumbing and fixtures. Put a few drops of food coloring in the toilet tank to make sure there’s no leakage into the bowl. Check your water meter when there’s no water turned on in the house to make sure it’s not running and that there are no invisible leaks in the house.
  • When you replace your toilet, choose one with the government’s WaterSense label. That’s a guarantee that you’re buying an efficient model.

Kitchen

  • Fill the dishwasher full before you turn it on. Don’t wash dishes prior to putting them in the dishwasher; scrape them and wipe them off. If you’re replacing an old dishwasher, choose one with the WaterSense label.
  • Check for leaks and fix them. If you have to run water for a long time before it’s hot, collect what you can to water plants.

Around the Home

  • Insulate the water heater and water heater pipes. Wash full loads of clothes, or be sure to set the water level for a small load when just washing a few things. Select an efficient model when you replace your water heater or clothes washer.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
