5 Ways to Save on Your Water Bill

Managing a home can get expensive. Between property taxes, household repairs, and all the other “little” things that pop up, the costs can multiply quickly. At My Hayward Plumber Hero, we want to help you save money. One way to do this is to lower your water bill.

Check out these tips from our plumbers for top ways to save money on your home’s water bill.

Replace Old Appliances

Do you have an old dishwasher that uses a lot of water and doesn’t even do a good job cleaning the dishes? Maybe you have a washing machine that uses an unbelievable amount of water even for small loads. Do yourself a favor and replace old, water-guzzling appliances. Not only will you save money on your water bill, but you’ll also save on energy costs.

Install a Tankless Water Heater

Many homeowners save money by replacing their tank water heater with a tankless heater. Tankless water heaters heat water on demand which saves energy, but they also don’t waste water because they don’t need refilling several times a day.

Replace Faucets

Do you have a habit of leaving the water run while brushing your teeth? Replacing your home’s faucets with low-flow models is a lot easier than trying to break a habit. Low-flow fixtures are 30% more efficient than standard faucets and you don’t lose water pressure.

Fix Leaks

Leaky toilets, faucets, and shower heads waste a lot of water. More than you know. The good news is that most of these leaks can be fixed quickly and for a little money. Some you can even fix yourself. For example, when interior toilet parts wear down, this creates a leak between the tank and bowl. Replacing broken toilet parts costs less than $20 and can be down in a matter of minutes.

Turn Off the Water in the Shower

We admit that this suggestion is controversial because not everyone embraces the idea of turning the water off in the shower while washing and conditioning their hair. However, if you’re looking for as many ways as possible to save money on your water bill, using less water in the shower is one way to do it.
