Chances are, you’re spending more money on your water bill than you have to. This is because many Americans are allowing trillions of gallons of water to wash down their drains in the form of plumbing leaks, running toilets, and other problems. Luckily, many of these problems have easy fixes and by monitoring your water use and performing maintenance as soon as issues arise, you can seriously cut down on your water bill.

3 Easy Ways to Save Money on Your Water Bill
Find leaks fast
Hidden leaks add up fast so to save on your water bill, you’ll want to monitor your water use to watch for the signs. A leak can lose up to 20 gallons of water a day, which is not only hard on your wallet but the environment as well. If you notice a leak that isn’t hidden, be sure to fix it right away! That slow drip from your faucet or bath tub may not seem like much but can really add up.
Fix running toilets
If your toilet never stops running, that means you’re literally flushing water down the drain. Running toilets are another major cause of water loss in residential homes but luckily, it’s often an easy fix. Call your Silver Spring plumber to learn more.
Switch out your fixtures
Two upgrades that can make a major difference on your water bill are low-flow showerheads and water-saving toilet inserts. Low-flow showerheads can reduce the amount of water you use during a shower by 50% or more! And tank inserts reduce the amount of water used by each flush by multiple gallons, leading to serious savings on your water bill.
