Nashville, TN – Tips for Reducing Water Usage This Summer

The topic of being smart about water consumption has been one we have long been educated on and reminded about. Being a precious resource, we know that wasting it can hurt everyone in the long run, but one of the most immediate impacts it can have is on our utility bill at the end of the month. As a local plumbing professional, our team at Jack Ward & Sons Co. is frequently contacted by customers seeking ways to reduce their water usage, especially as the seasons change and we head into the summer months. Homeowners with older homes that contain outdated plumbing are also prime candidates for passively using a greater amount of water for everyday activities.

The tips below will help you to be more conscientious of your water usage and some repairs or replacements you can make to set up your home for higher water efficiency:

Old Plumbing Needs To Go

Older plumbing systems, especially those that are prone to springing leaks or have done so in the past few years, might call for a plumbing replacement of your home. Our highly skilled technicians will provide you with some effective options that will last for many years to come. Whether you schedule a pipe repair or full repiping of your home, updated plumbing will help your home to use water more efficiently. It will also prevent damage to your pipes that can cause costly structural damage to your home.

Minimal Lawn Watering

If you are a homeowner with control over how often your lawn is watered? Stretching out how often your lawn is watered, about twice a week, will maintain your lawn’s green color and health. Watering your lawn in such a way helps to keep one of your home’s biggest water usage doing its job while reducing waste. Lastly, watering your lawn at night slows for more of the water to seep into the ground and reach the roots of the grass, as there is less evaporation from the heat of the summer sun.

Using Low-Flow Shower Heads

Another heavy hitter on your daily water usage is the shower. Older style shower heads were designed to force out high amounts of water to achieve the powerful streams that make taking a shower easier, but use a lot more water to do so. A highly efficient and very easy way to cut back on water usage is to replace them with EPA certified low-flow shower heads which are available at nearly every home improvement store. Several gallons of water could be cut off from your bill, and they would quickly pay for themselves!

A combination of all of these tips will help you manage your family’s water usage without cutting back on your quality of life. Call Jack Ward & Sons Co. today at (615) 227-2811 to schedule an evaluation of your home’s current plumbing situation.
