Tips to Conserve Water This Winter | Roto-Rooter Belleville

Drip your faucetWinter typically means a lot more indoor activities, and this can have an impact on how much water you use during this time of the year. There are a few tips that can help homeowners easily conserve water this winter:

1. Drip the faucet

Frozen pipes are one of the biggest threats in the winter, so it's necessary to drip your faucets to prevent bursts and even larger water issues. Homeowners can take this a step further by putting a pot under the dripping faucet to save the water being used. You can use this to water plants, wash vegetables and other necessary tasks.

2. Put a bucket in the shower

During cold winter days, nothing is better than a warm shower, but it can take your system a little while to get to that perfect temperature. This means that a lot of water is running down the drain as you wait for it to warm up. Instead of wasting these resources, put a bucket under the faucet to catch the water. As in the first tip, it can be used to flush the toilet and many other activities.

3. Use your dishwasher

You may be tempted to wash your plates by hand, but this actually utilizes about 40 gallons of water, even if you just spend 10 minutes cleaning your dishes. Instead, put all applicable items into the dishwasher. The appliance uses only 20 gallons of water, and can clean a large number of items in a relatively short time.
