How to Save Water in Your Home

By: Danny Lipford

Marcie asks, “What can I do to cut down on water usage and waste without sacrificing comfort?”

Saving water in your home is an important way you can help the environment as well as reduce your utility bill. Here’s how to go about it:

  • Look for leaks in pipes around your home and repair them.
  • Repair dripping faucets by replacing worn washers or valves.
  • Check toilets for leaks and repair if needed by replacing the flapper valve or adjusting the water level in the tank.
  • Replace older toilets with water saving models, such as dual flush toilets.
  • Replace high volume showerheads with low-flow models and limit the time spent in the shower.

    Hi, Pennington! Can you please add more information? Why do you think repair is needed for your shower head and faucet?

    Thanks for your comment.

    My concern is how much water is being used when water comes out both the shower head and faucet? I understand repair is needed however, is this an indicator of excessive water usage?
    Thank you in advance for your response.

    Water leaking anywhere in the home means high water bills. It’s always better to call the professional to inspect any plumbing issue. There are many DIY methods available for plumbing but they don’t always work.
    I remember damaging pipes in order to unclog the drain and it become a hassle for many other things.

    I would suggest to call professional for Water Leak Repair in Palm Beach County
