Saving Water This Summer

There are a ton of ways for you to cut down on costs before the weather begins to lean towards the chillier months. Many people tend to think they waste a good amount of water, and their bills reflect that.

Without thinking, some homeowners waste more water than they need to, and in order to fix this, they turn to water saving options. In addition to the obvious, there are a few other things you can do to save money and water!

Collecting Water Inside

Let’s say you’re taking a shower — not all of that water is hitting your body. Instead of letting the rest drain, why not try placing a bucket inside with you? This way, you can accumulate a good amount of water and use it for a future project, like washing the car! Not only does this save water for later, but this cuts overall costs. Additionally, you can try shaving off a minute or two from your shower in order to cut back on water. Did you know that this could save you between three and five gallons per minute?

Collecting Rainwater

By placing a barrel under your downspout, you can collect water from rainshowers and use it for a ton of things! This includes watering your plants, or giving the dog a bath. Additionally, you can place a grate on the top of the barrel to filter away bigger leaves and debris for cleaner water. Water is completely reusable, and it’s important to stay on top of your usage.
