Tips on How to Lower Your Water Bill
Helping our customers save some money any way they can is important to us. That’s why we thought we’d share some tips on how to lower your water bill. Below are some simple everyday tips that can really make a difference!
Save water by washing dishes the right way
There are a few different ways to wash dishes – the problem is that the most common way is the worst one. Most people run the faucet continuously while doing dishes. That is wasting water and money for no reason. Save on your water bill by doing it the right way. You should either:
Fill the sink up with water, add soap, let the dishes soak for a few minutes and then scrub them while in the sink. Or…use a dishwasher! Nothing matches the efficiency of a brand new dishwasher.
Either option will save you a lot of money on your water bill by the end of the year.
Keep drinking water in the fridge
Reuse bottles frequently and fill them up all at once. Once they are full, put them in the fridge to cool them down. A lot of water is wasted when people turn on the faucet and wait for the water to cool down. Keeping the bottles refrigerated will save water when you fill them up and you won’t have to stand around waiting for the water to cool down. It’s convenient and it saves you money on your water bills.
Fix your leaks!
We cannot stress enough how important it is to fix leaks. Some water leaks and dripping faucets can waste a litre of water per hour. Less-severe ones still waste countless litres around Canada each day. There’s no reason to let this happen. Contact a team of professionals to get all of those leaks fixed and you could save as much as 13% on your water bill, plus you’ll find out if there are any other issues in your plumbing system.
As you can see, there are things you can start doing right now to keep your water bills down. But knowing how to lower your water bill is only the first step. Now you’ve got to take action. Professional plumbing maintenance can also add to your water savings, so don’t hesitate to contact the experts at ClearView!
