Apartment and Condominium Owners water saving tips

 

Water-saving tips for tenants

 

Here are five water-saving tips to help tenants save water:

 

Reduce shower waste –to install an efficient showerhead and keep showers to less than five minutes.

 

Turn off the faucet – You don’t need to keep the faucet running when you are brushing your teeth, washing dishes or shaving. Also ask your building manager to replace older faucet aerators (nozzles) with water efficient aerators.

 

Wash full loads of laundry and dishes or choose the load size the matches the amount of clothes or dishes that need washing.

 

Report leaks to your building manager - Leaky toilets, showerheads, faucets and other fixtures can waste thousands of gallons of water.

 

Use a hose efficiently – Use a nozzle on the house and wash your car at a commercial car wash that reuses its water. Also, sweep driveways and sidewalks with a broom rather than wasting water from a hose.

 

 

 

Reduce Shower Flow

 

Ask your building manager to install a low flow showerhead. Also, spend a minute less in the shower.

 

Turn Off the Faucet

 

Turn off the water when brushing your teeth, washing dishes, or shaving. Also, ask your building manager to replace older faucet nozzles (aerators) with ones that use less water.

 

 

 

Wash Full Loads

 

Wash full loads, or choose an appropriate load-size setting for the number of items in the washer.

 

 

 

Report Leaks

 

Report water leaks to the building manager. Leaks can waste large amounts of water.

 

Reduce Outdoor Water Use

 

Use a nozzle on the hose, or wash the car at a commercial car wash that recycles the water. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean off the driveway or sidewalk.

Stunning 5 bedroom West Seattle house for sale
Geoff Hill (Keller Williams Seattle Metro West)

7553 30th Ave. SW., Seattle

Perfect picture of a picture-perfect house. I just brought this 5 bedroom West Seattle house to market yesterday and despite the crazy Seattle Summer weather, we're getting great activity on it. But that's no surprise. At $540,000 (just $166/square foot), it's a great value. But that's just the beginning. The current owners have spared no expense and spent countless hours updating and upgrading the majority of the fixtures and finishes in the home. New paint inside and out, new carpet, new exterior trim, extensive landscaping, new blinds, new windows, new hardware on doors, new countertops, new pantry shelving, new custom-made Peruvian Walnut entertainment center, new closet doors, new shower in (2nd) master bedroom, and on and on. Needless to say, there's more new than old in this remodeled West Seattle house! . . . But that's not what I really love about this home. Check out the view!

Some high clouds obscured the mountains in the background on the day my photographer took pictures of the house, but on clear days, you've got breathtaking views of Mount Rainier and the Cascade Mountains. Rainier and Cascade views in a 5 bedroom house in West Seattle for this price is unheard of (at least these days)!

I mentioned the 5 bedrooms, but talk about HUGE! This is the master bedroom, which has its very own 5-piece master bath. But there's also a second master bedroom with its own 3/4 bath. And for anyone looking for a spacious home, Not just the bedrooms are large. Look how expansive the kitchen, dining room, and living room are. . .

There's also a famiy room AND a bonus room! It took 22 pictures to even begin to show how much this home has to offer, far more than I can post in this blog. But search your favorite real estate website (I recommend www.SeattleHomeSearch.org) for 7553 30th Ave. SW., Seattle (MLS # 680975) or Google "5 bedroom West Seattle house for sale" and you'll be sure to find it, along with all the other wonderful details about this house that I didn't have room to fit. And if you're not already working with a Realtor, let us know and we'll be happy to arrange a private tour just for you!
