How to Monitor Your Water Usage Better

We’re living in a time when resources are scarce, and we all need to do our bit to save the environment. Monitoring your water usage is a step in the right direction. There are a number of different ways you can tackle this task, and we’re going to talk you through some of the most-popular ones here today.

Identify all your water outlets

You’ll never monitor your usage accurately if you don’t know where every outlet is within your home. For that reason, you should take some time to find them all. Don’t forget your washing machine and dishwasher are also plumbed into the mains supply.

Take regular readings from your metre 

Water meters are not just there so your local provider can ensure you’re paying the right amount. They can also be used by yourselves to determine how much water you’re using over the course of a week. If you don’t understand how to read your metre properly, there is lots of advice and information online.

Create an action plan

Once you have all that information, you can start experimenting with different ideas to see how it affects your usage. For instance, it might be a wise move to spend less time in the shower or refrain from filling your bathtub past the halfway mark.

Now you know how to better monitor your water usage; there should be nothing stopping you from getting started immediately. At the end of the day, it’s our children who will suffer most if we fail to take this issue seriously.
