One of the main ways to conserve water around your home is to be alert to possible leaks in your plumbing system.
Considering the amount of rain we’ve had recently in the Tampa Bay area, it may be surprising to know that homeowners and businesses are being told to conserve water. In Pinellas County, for example, “there are specific days and times when you may water the plants in your yard. By following these laws, you can help save water and reduce strain on the water system.”
Pinellas also has other water-conservation-related rules, such as prohibitions on allowing water to run from unattended hoses and “allowing water to flow from a broken sprinkler head, outdoor faucet, malfunctioning plumbing or irrigation system after receiving verbal or written notice.”
One of the best ways to save water is to make sure your plumbing system – inside and in your yard – is in good shape with no leaks. As the Southwest Water Management District reminds – “even a small leak can waste 300 or more gallons of water per month.” That’s not only a waste of water, it’s a way to make your water bill go up. Why spend money on water that’s simply escaping?
Swiftmud suggests you check faucets and other fixtures regularly for the sound or appearance of leaks. That also goes for your outdoor fixtures where you should make sure hoses, sprinkler systems and swimming pools are secure. If you find a leak, Swiftmud says you should have it fixed asap.
