From the outside in, the world of plumbing can seem complex and overwhelming. Anything can go wrong and cost you hundreds on your water bill, taking your hard earned money. Corroded pipes and burst water lines can cost the homeowner thousands to repair, and often require professional assistance. However, there are several other problems in your water system that anyone can fix! It need not be complicated as there are several ways to solve these problems you may not even know you have.
One large way to save money is by using a faucet aerator. These items screw into the bottom of your faucet and reduce the waterflow without reducing the water pressure. A related huge money saver is by using a low flow showerhead. This reduces the amount of water used by your shower substantially and can cut your water bill by up to %60 according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Taking shorter showers, less baths, and turning off water when you aren't using it all help substantially in cutting cost. Finally, replacing leaky faucets can work wonders in saving you money.
According to the National Sanitation Department leaky faucets waste 1000-2000 gallons every year. In a similar vein it's important to check your toilets often for silent leaks which can cause upwards of 500 gallons of water to be wasted every day! To check for this, place some colored dye in the tank of the toilet and if the color seeps into the bowl, you've got a leak. All of these methods together can save you hundreds or thousands every year.
