4 Tips for Saving Water in Winter

December 22, 2015 Contributor

Saving water in winterThe winter is a hard time financially for many people. You have a larger heating bill, holiday gifts, and time off work. It can make anyone a bit worried about paying next month’s expenses. One of the largest costs in your home may be the water bill. Luckily, there are few tips and tricks to saving water in winter. The environment and your wallet will thank you.

1. Winterize Pipes

One large task you should always remember to do each winter is protecting your pipes from freezing temperatures. A busted pipe will continue to gush large amounts of water. If you aren’t home to catch it, you can expect a hefty water bill to follow. By properly insulating your pipes, you can prevent a major leak.

2. Save Your Cold Water

During the winter, it can take awhile before your shower or sink heats up to the desired temp. Don’t let that cooler water go down the sink! Place a bucket under the faucet and collect the cold water for other uses. You can use this water for planting, cleaning, or flushing your toilet.

3. Locate Your Water Shut-Off Valve

Sometimes even with proper precautions, a busted pipe can happen. It is crucial to know where your water shut-off valve is located so you can quickly shut off the flow of water to the busted pipe.

4. Call a Professional
