By following a few simple suggestions, you too can see your water bill become much cheaper.
Outdoor Water Saving Tips
1. Check that your sprinklers aren’t watering the house or sidewalk. You can be wasting a lot of water if you fail to properly position position your sprinklers. By making sure that you are watering the lawn and not your house or sidewalk, you will be able to use less water and save more money.
2. Water your lawn in the morning or evening Watering your lawn during the middle of the day is inefficient because the warmer temperatures lead to quicker evaporation. By watering your lawn early in the morning or late in the evening, less water will evaporate, allowing you to water for shorter periods.
3. Instead of washing your car in the driveway, wash in on the lawn. If you are planning to wash your car, why not wash it on the lawn instead of in the driveway? This way, any water that is used to wash your car will automatically be reused watering the lawn. 4. Install a rain barrel. Installing a rain barrel or two under your downspouts is an excellent way to conserve water and save money on your water bill. Whenever it rains, you will have a free source of water available for watering your gardens or lawn. The more rain barrels you have around your property, the longer you will be able to use free water between rainfalls.
