This is vital in the event of a burst pipe or any other unforeseen emergency. If you are going away on vacation, turn off the water main.

Installing low flush toilets will help conserve water as they use about ½ the amount of a regular toilet. Also, installing low flow shower heads and faucets will also reduce your water usage. A simple aerator in your faucet will conserve water too. Tankless water heaters provide instant hot water, and savings, eliminating the need for a tank. Lower the thermostat on your water heater.

One reason may be the age of the pipes. As they get older, the build-up of rust or iron oxide causes them to close up over time and causes the diameter of the pipe to lessen, which restricts the flow of water through them. The best solution is to replace your old piping.
