Here are a few tips from the pros on how to shave a little more money off your water bill:

  • Low–Flush Toilets: Did you know that your toilet uses nearly 40 percent (about 3.5 gallons per flush) of the total water in the home? More than 4.8 billion gallons of water is flushed down American toilets each year. That’s why Magnolia Plumbing supports the installation of low-flush toilets. These toilets use only 1.6 gallons of water or less with each flush. Since they use less water, there is also a reduction in the volume of wastewater produced. Even in homes with conventional toilets, replacing them with low-flush toilets are an economical decision
  • Toilet Displacement Devices: Homeowners can place plastic containers filled with pebbles or water in the toilet tank. This reduces the amount of water used per flush (almost 1 gallon). Families can also use a toilet dam for the same purposes.
  • Low-Flow Showerhead: A family of four can save about 20,000 gallons of water a year by switching out a conventional 4.5 gallon per minute showerhead with a more efficient 2.5 gallon per minute showerhead.
  • Pressure Reduction: Reducing your water pressure can also shave off dollars from your water bill. Homeowners can install pressure-reducing valves that will curb the water pressure, and also reduce washing machine and dishwasher noise.
