  • 10 Ways to Conserve Water in Your Home

    Water conservation is incredibly important. Luckily, there are many simple ways to conserve water, and they all begin with you! If you have any questions about what you read here, give Legacy Plumbing Company a call at 919-571-9146, or fill out our Contact Form , and we’ll get back to you quickly!

    1. Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full. Doing this could possibly save 1000 gallons a month.

    2. Don’t let the water run while you brush your teeth. Running the water while you brush wastes about four gallons a minute. That’s 200 gallons per week for a family of four.

    3. Fix your leaky water faucets or toilets. It’s simple, cheap, and will save up to one hundred forty gallons a week. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, give Legacy Plumbing Company a call at 919-571-9146, or fill out our Contact Form , so we can schedule a Plumbing Appointment.

    4. When doing laundry, match the water level to the size of the load.

    5. Set up low-flow shower-heads in all showers, and aerated taps in your sinks. They’re cheap, easy to install, and may save your family up to 900 gallons a week. Hint: If your shower can fill a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, then you probably don’t have a low-flow fixture.

    6. Reusing your shower towel a number times, instead of using a new towel each time. This will reduce the amount of laundry you’ll do.

    7. Verify that your house is leak-free! Many homes have hidden water leaks. Read your water meter earlier than and after a two-hour interval when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there’s a leak. Give Legacy Plumbing Company a call at 919-571-9146, or fill out our Contact Form so we can schedule an appointment to diagnose any Water Leaks that you may be experiencing.

    8. While washing your vehicle, use a hose with a shutoff valve, and a bucket of soap and water. Doing this, instead of letting the hose run can save more than 100 gallons at a time.

    9. Keep a jug of cool, drinking water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap every time you need a drink.

    10. Upgrade older toilets with more water efficient models. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, give Legacy Plumbing Company a call at 919-571-9146, or fill out our Contact Form , and we can schedule an appointment with you.
