4 Tips and Tricks to Save on Your Water Bill
If you feel like you’re drowning in utility bills lately, you’re not alone. Seeing an increase in your water bill, or seeing an increase in your water bill every month is no fun.
Our team of experienced plumbers at Nautilus Plumbing want to help you save money on your water bill so you can have more to spend on the things you enjoy! Here are some simple tips that will help you lower costs.
1. Run the Dishwasher Once
Believe it or not, washing a full load of dishes at once saves more water than hand washing them. Hand washing dishes means you will spend more time letting the water run down the drain as you rinse and wash. We suggest skipping the rinsing process if you can and loading all of your dirty dishes into the dishwasher at once.
2. Wash a Full Load of Laundry
Just like fully loading your dishwasher, the same principle applies to washing clothes! Instead of washing small or medium loads of laundry, get all of your laundry washed at once to avoid having to run water in your washing machine more than you need.
3. Get the Water Meter Checked
If you’ve tried some water-saving tips already but to no avail, you should get your water meter checked. Usually, your local water company can check your water meter for inconsistencies and the line itself for leaks. When there’s a leak, your water bill will be higher than normal, so it’s best to get your water meter checked and contact an experienced plumber to fix the leak.
4. Call Your Local Plumber
Your water bill can be high for a number of reasons, and most of the time it’s connected to issues with your home’s plumbing. There could be leaks in the faucets, tub, shower, toilet, and more. Take action and rely on a plumbing company like Nautilus Plumbing for leak detection and repair services. We can be reached at (323) 629-4627, so give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to help!
