During the novel coronavirus pandemic of Spring 2020, lots of people kept journals of their sheltering in place experiences.
Were you one of them? If so, were some of your entries about spending more time with your kids and how that impacted your sensibilities? Or maybe you wrote about cooking adventures, binge watching shows on Netflix or Showtime, feelings of isolation, how you managed to keep in touch with friends and family – just to mention a few such possibilities.
Well, if your journal covered all bases, you might have included how much extra water you used with all the time spent inside your own four walls. Customers of ours took one look at their water bills and silently – or not – shrieked in horror!
If a pandemic leaves some positivity behind it, hopefully that includes lessons on how we can do things differently and smarter going forward – future pandemic or not.
Among those lessons would be – and should be – how to conserve water and, at the same time, save money. Here’s what your list of solutions might include:
- Tend to water leaks as soon as you spot them.
- Be on the lookout for hidden water leaks – warning signs include the sudden appearance of mold, phantom toilet flushes, or an area of dampness on a carpet over a concrete slab, among others.
- Switch to a low-flow toilet.
- Switch to other water-saving fixtures, including showerheads and faucets.
- Only wash full loads of clothes or dishes.
That’s only scratching the surface of water-saving practices.
