How to Save Money on Your Water

Your utility bill must be paid if you want the pleasure of running water and indoor plumbing every day. However, that bill doesn't need to be expensive and there are ways to lower. Take a look at the tips below and you'll find there are plenty of ways to lower that bill to a more comfortable number. Just use this tips and use a local plumbing repair company to keep your plumbing in good working order and you'll be fine.

Are Your Faucets or Toilets Leaking?
If you hear any dripping at night, you're hearing your water bill getting higher. If you notice a leak under your hose, you're really seeing a pool of your money on the ground. Also, your toilet could be leaking and you don't even know it. Put a spoon of food dye in the tank of you toilet and do nut flush. Now wait ten minutes. If your toilet water ends up the color of that food dye, your toilet is leaking too. All of these leaks need to be fixed if you want to start saving money on your water bill. You can either fix them yourself or have a plumber do it for you. Either way, get it done this month, so you can have a lower water bill next month.

Put a Water Bottle in Your Tank
If you have an old toilet, it's probably spitting out a lot of water each time you flush it. After all, low flow toilets are a new innovation. However, there is a work around. Simply fill up a 16 ounce plastic water bottle and put it in your toilet tank. Now, every time you flush your toilet you'll flush out less water and save some money on your water bill. This may not be a significant savings, but every bit helps in the end.

Stop Running Toilets
If you can hear water going through your toilet or if it takes a very long time for your toilet to fill up, your toilet may be running. That's a big waste of money. The good thing is the fix is simple and inexpensive. In most cases all you need to do is replace the stop valve.

Low Pressure Showers Please
It's fun to take a long shower, but those showers add bucks to your water bill. You can fix this situation by replacing your shower head with a low flow shower head. This can save a significant amount of money. If you pair that, with a shorter shower in general, you'll have a truely less expensive water bill.
