Do you know how conserving water in the bathroom helps you in the long run? Our bathroom remodeling experts at Genie Bath Systems are here to offer tips that help you save money on your water bills.
It’s easy to conserve water without much variance from your regular routine. Ready to find out how? Our team will explain.
- Save Water in the Bath
Here is a very simple list of ways you can save water during bath time:
- Only fill the tub halfway, which will also prevent spills
- Instead of waiting for the water to turn warm before plugging the drain, plug it immediately and adjust the water’s temperature as it runs
You’ll be able to cut the amount of bath water you use in half, which halves the bills, too. Not to mention, you’ll help conserve your area’s water supply (which is especially helpful in places like California.) This is a perfect solution for walk-in tubs, too.
- Buy WaterSense Shower Heads
WaterSense shower heads are more water-efficient than your average shower head. You’ll be able to get clean with a brand-new shower head that gives you the perfect amount of water pressure.
- Have a Steam Shower Installed
If you need a new shower, consider having a steam shower installed. Steam showers work like normal showers, but they use steam to keep clean. Using steam makes them very water efficient.
- Cut Down on Shower Time
Did you know that by cutting back on the time it takes you to shower each day by 1 minute will save around 150 gallons of water a month? Shortening the amount of time it takes you to shower is one of the easiest ways to make your bathroom water-efficient.
- Don’t Leave the Shower Water Running
If you’re looking for another easy way to conserve water in your new shower, try turning off the shower water. While you shampoo, condition, and lather soap, you can turn the water off and turn it back on when you need to rinse off. Some showers come equipped with quick shut off valves to make this easy.
- Hang Up Towels to Dry Them
You can always hang your towels up to dry instead of washing them after every use. We recommend hanging towels somewhere open where nothing else will touch them as they dry.
- Check for Any Leaks
Sometimes your shower, walk-in tub, sink, or toilet could be leaking, which is notorious for running up homeowners’ water bills. Check your bathroom for any signs of leaking, which can often be fixed by yourself.
- Have Water Aerators Installed
Having a simple water aerator installed on your sink faucets will be an easy way to save water. Water aerators slow down the flow of water as it comes out of the faucet, so you’ll naturally use less.
- Conserve Water While Shaving
Consider ways to save water either in your sink or new shower while you shave, including:
- Keep a small bucket of water in the sink while shaving instead of using running water.
- Turn the shower water off while you shave, and then turn it back on to rinse off.
- Turn the Faucet Off
This is a popular piece of advice for conserving water in the bathroom, but it’s one of the most important tips to mention. As you wash your hands and brush your teeth, turn the water off.
