With how expensive life is becoming these days, it is important to make sure you are able to save money wherever possible. This includes shaving a few dollars off of bills whenever possible.
One of the best places for you to save some money each month is by lowering your Gilbert water bill. While some of these hacks involve plumbing issues, they are all easy to do on your own and will save you some cash.
Here are a few tips for making sure you have a lower water bill each month:
Keeping reusable water bottles in your fridge is a good way to make sure that you always have cold water on hand, which means you will not have to run your water waiting for the water to cool. If you do not feel comfortable using reusable water bottles, you could always resort to the classic ice cube.
Wash with Heated Water
Much like not running your taps for a long time waiting for the water to cool, you may want to substitute heating the water you are going to use to wash your dishes on the stove, or in the microwave. This results in your not having to let the taps run for a while waiting for the water to heat up.
Don’t Overlook Leaks
Make sure that you take a look at those leaky faucets, or toilets. While it may seem obvious, it is important to make sure you get a plumber in to take care of these leaks. As well, you will want to replace the washers around faucets every couple of years.
Use Your Dishwasher
It takes much less water to run a fully loaded dishwasher than it does to do your dishes by hand, letting the taps run.
Insulate Your Pipes
While this may sound like a job for a Gilbert plumber, you can head to a hardware store and grab some foam and tape. Using these tools you can help your pipes be able to cultivate an environment that will allow water to heat up much quicker. Of course, it’s always best to leave this type of plumbing work to the professionals…
