How to lower your monthly water bill

Category: Housing


Is your monthly water bill a little higher than you’d like it to be? There are some easy ways that you can reduce your water intake and help to lower your monthly water expenses.

The shower

Begin by swapping out baths (which use approximately 35 gallons) for showers, and shorten your shower time, too. The average 15-minute shower uses 37.5 gallons of water, so try to reduce your time to only 5 or 10 minutes. And by switching to a low-flow showerhead, you can use fewer gallons per minute (almost half), which can help you to save anywhere from 25 to 60 percent on your water bill.

The toilet

Leaks in your toilet can cause 500 gallons of water to go to waste on a daily basis. If your toilet is leaking, address the issue promptly. Also be sure to replace your toilet flapper every year. These can quickly wear down, and can cause your monthly water bill to be higher than it has to be.

The faucet

Even a minor leak can waste up to 2,000 gallons of water annually, so be sure to fix any leaky faucets in your home. Installing a faucet aerator can help to reduce water flow, without reducing water pressure. Be sure to not allow water to un while you are shaving or brushing your teeth, either. Even small changes like this can reflect in your monthly water bill.
