Do You Have High Water Bills And Bad Water? Stop Sweating It And Solve Both Of These Problems

by Emily Flores

If you feel like the water in the house isn't very high quality, and that you have unnecessarily high water bills, it's time to make some changes. There are some things that you can do to help improve and conserve the water.

The water quality may not be fantastic, even if it comes from the city. This because of the filtration system the city uses, or because of the piping that carries the water. Here are a few things to consider.

Water Softener

Even if you have city water you can benefit from a water softener. Hard water can lead to problems like cardiovascular disease among others, and can stain. Getting a softening system hooked up to your water can help extend the life of your hot water tank, because it filters hard minerals that do damage to the tank, and it's going to improve the quality of your drinking water.

You should have your water tested, to make sure that you are getting enough fluoride and other important minerals. There are many low maintenance softening systems you can look into.

Grey Water Irrigation System

You could use a grey water recycling system to irrigate your lawn, instead of using water from the hose. Water from the hose is going to cost you money and can be a waste, but the grey water recycling system is going to help you water the lawn, even when temperatures are high and water resources are low in your area.

Water Reduction Faucets and Shower Heads

Have the shower heads and faucets in the house replaced with models that are designed to reduce water flow without compromising pressure, so you use less water every time you turn the faucet on. This can help lower your utility bills significantly over time. You can get a hose for the outside of the house as well.

Talk with the water professionals in your area to see what type of filtration system you can get to make your water healthier for the family, and to see how you can start to cut down your water bills around the house. You may not even realize you're wasting water every time you turn on the shower with your outdated fixtures, or that they need replaced because of hard water erosion anyways. The sooner you solve these water problems the sooner you can improve your home and make it more efficient.
