Tips and Tricks to Save Water This Summer

Simple Steps You Can Take to Save Money

Summer is here again, and while it can be tempting to let cool water flow freely in your home, we know you don’t want to deal with sky-high water bills this season. That’s why we had our plumbing experts put together a list of simple solutions that can help you prevent water waste while still letting you enjoy the comfort your plumbing system has to offer.

Smarter Lawn Care

We know you want to keep your lawn green and healthy, but consistent watering can get wasteful, especially in California. Luckily, there are ways to maintain a healthy lawn without wasting water. Make sure you only run your sprinklers early in the morning or late at night to make sure water sinks into the soil instead of evaporating in the sun and avoid watering sidewalks instead of grass. For extra water savings, consider replacing your grass with drought-tolerant plants.

Don’t Leave the Taps Running

This one’s simple – take shorter showers, and make sure taps are completely turned off when not in use. It may not seem like much, but you can save hundreds of gallons of water per month!

Take Advantage of What You Have

You have a modern home, with a lot of modern conveniences. Make them work for you, not against you! For example, if you have a pool, keep it covered when not in use so that the water won’t evaporate and need to be replaced. Your dishwasher is another great opportunity, as it cleans more dishes than hand washing with a lot less water.
