At DRI we care about our community. A We try to help by donating time and money to worthwhile causes. A Water conservation is something everyone can practice and it really makes a difference; to the environment, and to your wallet!
Here are 3 easy ways you can save money on your next water bill:
1. Insulate your water pipes.
It’s easy and inexpensive to insulate your water pipes with pre-slit foam pipe insulation. You’ll get hot water faster plus avoid wasting water while it heats up.
2. Check for leaks in pipes, hoses, faucets, and couplings.
Leaks outside the house may not seem as bad since they’re not as visible. But they can be just as wasteful as leaks indoors. Check frequently to keep them drip-free. Use hose washers at spigots and hose connections to eliminate leaks.
3. Deep-soak your lawn early in the day.
When watering the lawn, do it long enough for the moisture to soak down to the roots where it will do the most good. A light sprinkling can evaporate quickly and tends to encourage shallow root systems. Put an empty tuna can on your lawn – when it’s full, you’ve watered about the right amount.
