Simple Ways To Cut Down Your Water Consumption At Home

With the continually rising energy costs, you may be thinking more economically about your energy usage in your home! Reducing your water consumption can bring your energy bill down a significant amount! Saving water is also extremely beneficial for the environment, so making an effort to conserve water usage actually holds a range of benefits.

We have picked out 5 brilliant ways that you can cut down on your water consumption within your home. To find out more, keep on reading!

Turn Off Your Taps

This might seem like an obvious piece of advice, but turning off your taps when you aren’t using them can save more water than you think. Whether you’re running around in the kitchen, brushing your teeth or shaving, turning the tap off when you aren’t using it can save you up to 8 gallons of water!

Showers Over Baths

An 8 minute shower will typically use about 62 litres of hot water, whereas the average bath uses about 80. If you’re a regular bath taker looking to save water, then switching to showers can help you reduce your water usage. You don’t need to cut them out completely, but you could try limiting yourself to 1 or 2 baths a week.

Fill ‘Em Up

Whether it’s your dishwasher or your washing machine, or anything else that uses up quite a bit of water and energy, it’s vital that you fill up your machines fully before you turn them on. Fully loading your appliances means that you wash more in one go, and you don’t need to use these appliances as much. Instead of doing 2 laundry washes a week, just do one big load!

Collect Your Rainwater

It might sound excessive but collecting your rainwater can actually save you a lot of water! For things like watering house plants and your garden, composting, washing your car or other outdoor activities, collecting your rainwater can help you reduce your water consumption massively.

High-Efficiency Plumbing Fixtures

If your bathroom is a little outdated, then your water usage could be higher! Newer bathroom fixtures often have better water efficiency, and there are a range of things you can change to help with this!

● Faucets

● Shower heads

● Low-flow toilets
