Another appliance to look into is a modern dishwasher.  Were you aware that manual dishwashing consumes more water that a water efficient dishwasher?   You could save yourself time, energy, and water by acquiring a new dishwashing unit.

Lawn Watering

Most counties are out of the lawn watering ban thanks to the end of our long-lasting drought.  Nevertheless, a careless approach to lawn watering can be an expensive enterprise.  One water conservation study showed that nearly 55% of residential water use is outside of the home (ie. lawn watering, car washing, window washing, etc.).  There are more water efficient ways to water lawns like:

  • Using drip irrigation systems
  • Reusing storm water for irrigation

These strategies are just the tip of the iceberg.  There are a variety of ways to improve your home water system.  However, to do so, it is best to have a full home plumbing audit.  Once this is done, a plumbing professional will share with you all the ways that you can reduce your water use.
