Summer Water Saving Ideas for your Avon Lake Home

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna - Avon Lake, OH 2006004434

Here are some great water saving ideas for your Avon lake Home.


Limit dishwasher use to full loads. Let really dirty dishes/pans soak to speed washing. Soak dishes instead of letting the water run while you scrape them. Cut back on rinsing if your dishwasher is new because newer models clean more thoroughly than older ones.

-Use one glass each day for your drinking water thus cutting down on the number of times you use the dishwasher.

-Store drinking water in refrigerator to keep cold instead of allowing the tap to run when you want cool water.

-When washing by hand, fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.

Don’t use running water to thaw food; defrost in refrigerator or microwave.

When washing your hands, don’t let the water run when you lather.

Install an instant water heater near the kitchen sink to avoid running the water while it heats up thus

reducing energy costs.


-Take a five-minute (or less) shower instead of a bath.

-If you do take a bath, plug bathtub before turning water on, then adjust temperature as the tub fills up. 

Install a water-saving shower head. 

- Fix all running toilets. Make sure toilet flappers do not stick open after flushing.

Drop tissue in the trash instead of in the toilet to eliminate unnecessary flushing.

Turn off the water while you shave and/or while you are brushing your teeth.


Limit your laundry to full loads

Make sure there are aerators on all of your faucets.

Water plants thoroughly but less frequently.

 Only install a water-softening system when minerals in water will damage your pipes. Turn softener off

when on vacation.

Struggling to search for Avon Lake, Avon, North Ridgeville, Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village Homes?  Need some easier way to do it on the go?  Trulia 
and Zillow are great programs however they are not local.  They are not current to activity at the minute and projections on values of homes are questionable based on global measures and not having local information as a local Realtor would.  So what to do? Add my search engine to your mobile devise or  computer and get direct and current home sales, open houses, know when a home is off the market and sold right away and find similar homes in the area.  The search engine has GPS function that you can activate on your phone  and with that it will give you comparables while you are in the driveway of that dream home.  Now how cool is that?  

Try it.
