Throughout April, a number of public entities in Florida focused on water conservation and the importance of educating the public in an effort to reduce water usage throughout the state.
There are several ways homeowners can practice conserving water in their community. One of the main causes of high water bills is leaking water fixtures inside and outside of the home. It is important to take care of faulty water fixtures the moment they are discovered because they could lead to a costly ordeal.
An overused irrigation controller can also be to blame for high water bills. Make sure the controller does not run more than two days per week and that each zone has an equal time allotted. One of the easiest ways to conserve water is to turn off a sprinkler if it is going to rain.
Those are just some of the simple steps to make sure any home is protected from any major water leak issues. It is important to follow these steps if you'd like to conserve water this summer to not only cut down on water use but also to reduce the cost of high water bills.
