5 Water Conservation Tips for Spring

March 12th, 2019

Now that spring has almost arrived and snow is finally starting to leave local forecasts, Pennsylvanians are eagerly awaiting the return of beautiful blossoming trees, lush green grass, and joyfully singing birds. Water conservation efforts can help everyone enjoy a nicer spring season by decreasing pollution, delaying the destruction of local wildlife habitats, and conserving energy. You don’t have to stop showering to do your part for the environment—just use a few of our easy water conservation tips this spring.

Take a shorter shower. Long, hot showers might feel great after a long day at work, but they can quickly turn into a major waste of water. Cutting down your shower by just a single minute saves about 2.5 gallons of water. That means that if you take a shower that’s 3 minutes shorter just 5 times a week, you’ll save a whopping 37.5 gallons of water every week.

Avoid excessively watering your lawn. Watering your lawn can waste thousands of gallons of water a month and might be useless if your lawn is still covered in snow. Limit the time you spend watering your lawn and install an automatic rain shutoff device on your sprinklers to avoid excess waste.

Fix plumbing problems early. Even relatively small cracks and leaks can waste gallons and gallons of water. Regularly inspect your plumbing system and call for pipe repair in Montgomery County as soon as you notice something’s wrong.

Know where your master shutoff valve is located. Leaks, clogs, and floods do more than just waste water—they can also cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home. Knowing where your master water shutoff valve is before an emergency can save stress, water, and tons of cash.

Only run your household appliances with full loads. Running your dishwasher or laundry machine uses the same amount of water and energy no matter how full it is. Only run your appliances with full loads to save water and lower your energy bill.
