How closely to you check your water bill?
Reading the comparison information regarding USAGE may be the surest way to look for bigger problems.
Are you taking shorter showers and still paying more? We get accustomed to the prices of everything increasing, do you forgot to look how much water you are actually using and not just how much you are paying?
Increases in consumption can indicate a need to change habits, update appliances or serve as a warning for leaks in the household.
Put into practice the water saving tips we hear all the time (if you are not already doing so):
- Take shorter showers
- Don’t run the water while brushing your teeth
- Run only full loads of dishwasher or washing machine
- Reduce watering days for lawns etc to 1 or 2 days a week
If you don’t see enough change in consumption for the next billing cycle it may be a good idea to check for leaks or consider updating water using appliances such as dishwashers, toilets, washing machines, etc.
