There are lots of ways to conserve water at home.

Water conservation is vital to the environment, and your utility bill! The current average water consumption in Australia is approximately 100,000 of litres of fresh water per year. The shower, toilet and laundry use the most water in an Australian household. By being mindful of a few things that you do day-to-day could save you hundreds of litres of water a year!

Here are 7 tips to conserve water to get you started:

  1. Fix your leaks. Fixing leaks saves water and money spent on your utility bill. For example, if your tap is dripping or your toilet is running, this wastes thousands of litres of water each day!
  2. Turn off the tap whilst brushing your teeth. Brushing teeth requires very little water, thus keeping the tap running unless were rinsing our mouth or toothbrush is a total waste. Try to get into the habit of turning the tap off when you’re actually brushing your teeth or filling up a cup and using that instead.
  3. Use your appliances on full loads. Make sure that you only use your dishwasher or washing machine when it is full, and choose a water efficient cycle.
  4. Take shorter showers. A 10-minute shower uses approximately 200 litres of water, by cutting your daily shower down to 5 minutes you save hundreds of litres of water.
  5. Don’t over-flush your toilet. Only flush your toilet when necessary – don’t use it as a bin to flush extra things such as baby-wipes or emptying your hairbrush!
  6. Check your water bill. Your water bill can be a strong indicator that you may have hidden leaks. If your water bill suddenly jumps up dramatically even though your usage has been the same you may want to have a plumber investigate.
  7. Install water saving plumbing fixtures such as showerheads and taps. Showers account for 34% of water usage in the home, toilets 26%, so by installing water saving showerheads, taps and toilets, you can potentially save thousands of litres of water.

    I have been using Chett for over 6 years as a Property Manager. Chett, Mary and the team have never let me down. They are professional, very well priced and will go above and beyond to help out. Out of the plumbers I have had dealings with, Maroochydore Plumbing is definitely my favourite - reliable, honest and very efficient... Would highly recommend.
