How You and Your Family Can Conserve Water

Water is essential in the summer heat for keeping us cool and hydrated. But when we get long periods of hot weather without rain, droughts become a risk and citizens are asked to watch the amount of water they use on a daily basis. If this becomes a risk where you live, or if you’re just interested in being more economical in your everyday life, here are some tips on how you can take small steps that make a big difference toward conserving water.

Shorten your showers

A hot shower on a cold day can be extremely difficult to leave, so we’re probably all guilty of running our showers too long at times. But if you cut your shower short by just 2 minutes each time you shower, you could save massive amounts of water across the span of a year.

Ditch the sprinklers

Using sprinklers may be a more convenient way to water your lawn, but it’s also more wasteful and less efficient in terms of water usage. Go back to the old days of water your yard with a hose in order to save water. Even better, use leftover water to water your plants. You could save the water after boiling pasta, for example, or collect rainwater in a barrel.

Use a water cooler

You want to drink cool water, so when you fill up a glass from the faucet, you probably leave the water running for a while until it reaches a nice temperature. It may not seem like a lot, but the water you waste doing this adds up. Using a water cooler means that you have access to cool water without wasting any. Another solution is to fill a bottle of water and keep it in the fridge.

Wash dishes more efficiently

Whether you use a dishwasher or do it by hand, there are some ways you could cut back on the water. If you do the dishes yourself, then you should fill up the sink or a bowl to wash the dishes in, rather than leaving the faucet running while you scrub them. Try to do larger loads at once rather than filling the sink for a couple of plates. The same goes for your dishwasher. Frequent half loads can be incredibly wasteful. Wait until your dishwasher is full before you set it off. Using a lower setting on your dishwasher will also use less water.

Order Bottled Water for Your Next Party

Are you throwing a party at your home? Maybe it’s a housewarming party, a birthday party, or simply a fun gathering of friends You’ve likely got a lot of things on your mind when it comes to planning the party, especially getting enough food and drinks for all your guests. One way to make the party planning easier is to arrange a bottled water delivery service for the party.

Bottled water delivery for parties

At Mountain Park Spring Water, we deliver bottled spring or purified water in a variety of sizes. Smaller bottles – 16.9 ounces and 20 ounces – are perfect for drinking from directly, for pouring a glass of fresh water, or for mixing a soft drink. You can also have larger bottles delivered – 3 and 5 gallons – to use with your water cooler or dispenser.

Why have bottled water delivered for your party?

It always helps to have enough fresh water in the house, but here are a few reasons why stocking up is a great idea before a party.

One less thing to handle yourself – If you want to stock up on water, why not just get the bottles in yourself? With so many other things to focus on leading up to the party, having bottled water delivered just leaves you with one less thing to worry about. You don’t have to go out to the store yourself or lug heavy bottles into your home.

Keep your guests hydrated – No matter what type of party you’re holding, it’s always good to have water on hand for when someone needs a drink. Kids will need plenty of hydration if they’re running around your home and yard, and it’s good to encourage them to drink something other than juice and pop all the time. If it’s more of an adult party and people are drinking alcohol, then it’s handy to have water on hand to avoid a hangover the next day, especially at the end of the night.

Alternatives for non-alcohol drinkers – Not all of your guests will want to drink alcohol, and others may be designated drivers. It’s thoughtful to have fresh, cool, and good-tasting water on hand for these people, either to drink on its own or to mix with other soft drinks, or for making teas and coffees.
