Tips for Saving Money on Your Water Bill

Did you know that if you can reduce your water bill by just $25 each month you’ll have an extra $300 in your pocket at the end of the year?

U.S. News & World Report offers a list of six easy ways that any household can save money on their monthly water bill.  These include:

1.  Store Cold Water in the Fridge
Rather than running the tap for the water to cool, fill a pitcher and keep it in the refrigerator for when you want a glass of cold water.

2. Take Shorter Showers
If you reduce shower time by 4 minutes, you save nearly 4,000 gallons per year.

3. Don’t Let the Water Run when Shaving or Brushing Your Teeth
This mistake is a complete waste of water and you’ll see money you can save literally going down the drain!

4. Install a Low-Flow Shower Head
You can reduce water used in the shower by as much as 50 percent with a low-flow shower head.

5. Run Full Loads of Dishes & Laundry
Running these appliances only when full reduces the number of times that you’ll need to run them.

6. Don’t Hand-Wash Dishes
YOu will use 1/6 less water by running a full load in the dishwasher.
