Water Saving Tips For Homeowners

water saving tips

Water conservation measures at home need not be difficult nor expensive; check out these easy water saving tips at home:

  • Search for Water Leaks: Small, intermittent residential water leaks are estimated to waste millions of gallons of water each year. The most common leaks include worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets and leaky showerheads. Inspect your home and fix these simple water wasters.
  • Outdoor Watering … a must? Consider letting your lawn go dormant. On average, a homeowner can save more than 100,000 gallons of water per summer by not using a sprinkler system. In many areas, grass can go dormant during hot, dry weather without watering and recover when growing conditions improve.
  • Maximize Outdoor Watering Efficiency: More than 30 percent of summer water use by CWLP customers is estimated to be used for outdoor watering. If you must water, instead of using sprinklers or watering your lawn and plants with a hose, consider using soaker hoses or drip line irrigation that allow water to seep directly into the soil and put water exactly where you need it – at the root zone. Watering low and slow could save the average homeowner up to 20,000 gallons per year.
  • Fine Tune Your Irrigation System: Many CWLP customers with irrigation systems set them to run by automated timer, but re-checks of the system are rarely scheduled. Irrigation heads can easily get misaligned or clogged. One faulty irrigation zone can waste 12,500 gallons of water per summer. Inspect your system today.
  • Take Shorter Showers and Install an Efficient Showerhead: An average morning shower takes 8 minutes. An older showerhead can use up to 5 gallons of water per minute. Switching to a more efficient showerhead can save almost 4 gallons of water per minute. Taking a 5 minute shower can save you another 15 gallons a day!
  • Install a Rain Barrel (rainwater tank) to Collect Water: Even short rain showers allow you to capture water from your roof to store in a rain barrel for future use like watering your plants.

Rain barrels or rainwater harvesting tanks are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.  Investing in water tanks for storing rainwater is a wise move, especially if water supply cuts are common, as in many towns and cities around South Africa.  Not only do rain water tanks save water and the environment, the reserves of rainwater could also be very useful in the event of natural or man-induced disasters where municipal water supplies are contaminated or shut down.  For more information about the wide variety of plastic water tanks and other products manufactured by JoJo Tanks, click on the links below.
