Reducing Water Bill Without Changing Habits

Particularly during the winter season, many homeowners are shocked when they look at their water bill at the end of the month. Many are constantly looking for ways to spend less, but often aren’t going about it the right way.

At All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling, we’re here to help. Reducing water usage without seeing any major impact on your daily lifestyle is often as simple as checking for some basic plumbing problems, plus taking a few steps regarding your hardware and water-related appliances. With that in mind, let’s look at a few basic tips to reduce your usage and lower your water bill.

Inspect for Leaks

Leaks can happen at any point, and they aren’t always easy to identify or predict. Leaks may take place in pipes behind walls or in faucets, or in a plumbing fixture that hasn’t been connected properly.

If you’re suspicious that your system might have a leak but can’t identify it, take these simple steps:

  • Mark down the water level at your water meter
  • For the next two hours, make sure no water is used in the home
  • Check the water meter again – has the water level has gone up?
  • If yes, you have a plumbing leak and should call our plumbers to help find and repair it

Water-Efficient Hardware

To help use less water with every use of a given fixture, consider water-efficient hardware. This might include an aerator or flow regulator to your faucet or could mean a dual-flush toilet or a low-flow showerhead. These items can save you gallons of water per day without impacting your quality of life at all.

Appliance Efficiency

Any appliances or fixtures that were installed in the early 2000s or earlier should be replaced with more efficient models. Look for appliances that have high-efficiency ratings – these may cost more up front, but will end up saving you far more in the long run when you consider how much they’ll help reduce your water usage.
