Saving on water usage isn’t only to save money, it helps the environment.

 

Here are 5 ways to save on water usage.

1)      Skip the bath, take a shower.  A full bathtub normally takes 70 gallons of water. Standing in the shower for five minutes uses less than 1/3 of the water.

2)      Don’t run the dishwasher unless it’s full. This decreases the amount of water it takes to run it several times.

3)      Take a shorter shower. Instead of standing in the shower for 15 minutes before washing your hair, try to cut your time in half.

4)      Don’t run the washer until you have a full load of laundry. Also, don’t forget to take your laundry out of the washer to dry so you don’t end up rewashing the load.

5)      Water the lawn at cooler parts of the day.  Try early morning or early evening when the sun is down.
