Your bathroom is one of the most visited rooms in your house. You use it when you need to unwind with a hot bath, prepare and dress for the day, or just spend some time alone away from the chaos. You depend on it greatly to keep your family running, so you know how important it is to keep it in good shape.
One issue many people deal with is water use in the bathroom. Maybe you use too much of it and want to cut down on bills or simply do your part to conserve water. Perhaps you want to make sure you don’t run into any plumbing issues so you can avoid the need for professional water damage cleanup. Whatever your reason, we’re here to help you learn how to save water.
Don’t Treat Your Toilet Like a Trashcan
It’s never a good idea to flush random things down a toilet that don’t belong there. Toilet paper is the only thing that should be flushed. Never flush feminine napkins, wipes (even if they say they’re “flushable”), facial tissues, or paper towels. Not only do you waste water trying to flush the items down, but your plumbing could back up, leading to the need for sewage cleanup and water damage cleanup. This will cause stress for everyone in your home. Make sure guests are aware of and follow the toilet paper rule.
Take Shorter Showers
Some people like to take long, hot showers, especially at the end of a stressful day. Instead, try to take short showers, about five minutes in length. If you’re worried, you can time yourself using a clock or a music playlist on your phone.
Turn off Faucets When You’re Not Using Them
When you’re not rinsing your toothbrush or sticking a washcloth under the faucet, turn the water off.
