As the Californa drought continues, there are many reasons for homeowners to live more water conscious. By taking steps in the right direction when it comes to conservation, you can help reduce your carbon footprint, and lead a more green and planet-friendly lifestyle.

For example, through updating your appliances and routine inspections, you can save water and a significant amount of money as well. Also, some simple tips around the home can help you become a more efficient water saver.

Here are 4 ways you might be wasting water around your home:

  • Dripping Faucets, Shower Heads or Toilets: A leaking faucet, showerhead or toilet is the biggest water waster in the home. For example, the water lost from a leaking toilet can add up to a total of 10,000 gallons per year and 20 to 30 gallons per day1.
  • Hand Washing vs. Using the Dishwasher: Hand washing your dishes actually wastes more water than running the dishwasher. If water is constantly running when washing dishes by hand, you can waste 35% more water than through running a dishwasher1.
  • Showers vs. Baths: When making the decision, take a shower over a bath! Taking a bath can waste as much as 75 gallons of water1.
  • Laundry Load Quantity: Doing laundry can be a huge home water waster. When doing laundry, make sure you are washing a full load. It will help you save water and also save you money.

These are just a few of the many ways that gallons of water are wasted every day in an average household. If you worried about the water usage, and water wasters, in your home, give RighTime Home Services a call at (714) 984-0086 or visit us at https://www.rightimeservices.com.
