Re: 25 ways to reduce your water bill

One thing I have started doing is turning the hot water down during the day. Our hot water heater is in our garage and is easy to reach. I turn it up around 6pm for nighttime baths and leave it on until 8am for mornign baths. I am sure to wash diapers during that time. I have saved about 25% of the gas bill doing this and it's pretty easy to do. I could save lots more if I could get everyone to shower at night, but no such luck.

You could get a timer for this, I don't know if you've considered it..it sounds like what your doing is pretty easy for you though.

Re: 25 ways to reduce your water bill

Some others I forgot about that we have here: (forgive me if its repeats)
~Airator faucets and reduced flow nozzles on the showers and sinks. The kitchen sink has a turnoff valve right on the faucet-so you dont have to mess with the temp everytime you want to shut it off for a second. (Duke Power sent us these in an energy conservation kit)
~Fill 2 sports water bottles and sink them in your toilet tank. It displaces that much water at each flush. Need I remind, "If its yellow, let it mellow-its its brown, flush it down" (or if you are my son, don't )
~Use a cup to rinse your mouth when brushing your teeth, and obviously shut it off while you brush.
~Extremes, military showers. I dont do this because my shower time is sooo precious, but you can turn on and off between soap and shampoo and rinse..etc...

Re: 25 ways to reduce your water bill

I keep telling DH that if he didn't take 25 minute showers every morning our gas bill would go down. 25 MINUTES what does he even do in there that long?!
