Nowadays, water conservation isn’t just an eco-friendly practice; it has become a necessity in some places. Gutter Helmet® of Monticello, a trusted name in the gutter industry based on numerous gutter cover reviews, shares some water conservation tips below.

Fix Leaks Right Away

While any type of leak should be addressed promptly, be aware that some leaks cause more water waste than others. In particular, you should keep an eye out for leaks in water guzzlers like toilets.

If you suspect your toilet has a leak, add some drops of food coloring to the tank. That way you’ll know if the small puddles you find in your bathroom are really coming from your toilet.

Shower Quickly

Another water guzzler is your shower. In fact, the shower is the third largest user of water in the entire household, only beaten by washing machines and toilets.

Of course, it can be tempting to take long refreshing showers, especially on a hot summer day. Try to limit your shower time by playing a five-minute shower playlist.

Water Your Garden in the Morning or Evening

Watering your garden in the early afternoon is a waste of time, effort and, more importantly, water. The hours of 12-2pm are typically the hottest of the day, which means water is likely to evaporate before the plants can absorb it.

Collect Rainwater

It would be a waste not to take advantage of summer rain. Install a rain barrel or even just a simple bucket under your downspout to collect rainwater you can use for cleaning and other non-essential household tasks.

However, take note that leaves wilt faster in summer, increasing the risk of your gutters being jammed with dry foliage. The blockage can impede the flow of rainwater or may even cause it to overflow onto your roof. That’s why it’s important to keep your gutters clean.

Don’t have time to clean your gutters regularly? Install a gutter cover. Gutter covers prevent foliage from entering and blocking your gutters. Be sure to do your research and read through online gutter cover reviews. While reading through reviews on the internet, you’re sure to encounter one brand—Gutter Helmet. As our customers will attest, Gutter Helmet is a trusted name when it comes to gutter protection.
