Though our plumbing professionals are no strangers to all sorts of questions, one question that they’re asked frequently pertains to both saving money and saving the environment.

“How do I decrease my water usage?”

Because reducing everyday water usage can be both energy efficient and cost effective, in the spirit of the upcoming Earth Day, our talented Chas Roberts Phoenix plumbers are excited to share three easy-to-follow tips to help you save water, save money, and save the environment.

  1. Search for leaks: Because many pesky leaks can go unnoticed for months at a time, it’s important to constantly be on the lookout for dripping faucets and faulty water fixtures. Though a leak may seem harmless, in reality, it can siphon both water and money in no time flat. Just how much? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, an average household wastes 10,000 gallons of water every year on leaks alone.
  2. Invest in desert plants: One major source of water usage comes from none other than lawn care. From timed sprinklers to daily watering with a hose, taking care of a high-maintenance garden can deplete resources in the blink of an eye. Instead, consider investing in drought-resistant plants and grass alternatives – an easy and attractive solution here in the Arizona desert!
  3. Give your appliances a break: Instead of running your dish washer or washing machine multiple times a day, wait until you have a full load. For smaller loads, wash dirty clothes and dishes by hand, and consider investing in an Energy Star appliance that uses on average 35-50% less water.
