Nobody really wants to waste water. But it’s too easy to fall into patterns in a home that lead to water waste or to let basic plumbing tasks that can lower water consumption go undone. Eventually, you might find yourself looking at water bills that seem far too high—higher than you remember paying.

You can change your household’s water-using habits, have plumbing troubles fixed, and have low-flow fixtures and appliances installed. Below is a list of ways to save water, from basics to jobs you can arrange with a licensed plumber.
