In order to save money on your utilities, curtailing water wastage may be the ideal place to start. The following could be the signs you need to conserve water more and save more money;
Outdated shower heads
Examine your showerheads from time to time and you don't have to wait until they get broken before you replace them. If you are wasting up to two gallons of water in a minute, you should consider changing your old shower heads.
Old aerators on your faucets
