Water Conservation Tips for Jacksonville Homes


Jacksonville homeowners use an average of over 100 gallons of water per person daily. But with rising utility rates and environmental concerns, reducing your household's water consumption should be a priority. Water conservation not only helps lower costs but also eases the burden on Jacksonville's water treatment facilities.


The good news is that minor plumbing upgrades coupled with wiser water use habits in your home's kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and garden can significantly control water waste. Consider these conservation tips tailored for Jacksonville residents seeking plummeting water bills:


Install Water-Saving Plumbing Fixtures

Replace outdated sinks, showers, tubs, and toilets lacking EPA WaterSense certification with newer high-efficiency models using less than 1.5 gallons per flush or 2 gallons per minute flow rates. Install low-flow aerators on bathroom and kitchen faucets restricting water volume.


Repair Leaks

Dripping faucets, running toilets, and unseen pipe leaks in walls and under home foundations lead to huge water loss and higher payments. Stay diligent about repairing all identified leaks and watch for unexpectedly surging water bills signaling undiscovered problems.


Harvest Rainwater

Install rain barrels, cisterns, or other catchment systems to reuse rain runoff for watering lawns, gardens, and outdoor cleaning instead of tap water. Florida’s climate lends itself perfectly to cost-free rain harvesting supplies.


Run Full Loads

Run dishwashers and washing machines only when completely packed. Adjust water levels downward for smaller load sizes. Scrape rather than rinse dishes before washing.


Water Wisely

Prioritize your landscape's highest value plants for hand watering or irrigation rather than wasting water on the entire yard. Water at dusk to prevent rapid evaporation. Let grass grow taller and allow plants to naturally go dormant during Florida's dry season.


Minor indoor and outdoor adjustments tailored for Jacksonville can significantly control home water usage and monthly bills.
