How To Conserve Water At Home
Posted on July 31st, 2014
Water is the essence of life. We need it on a daily basis in order to live. From washing the dishes to doing the laundry, you are probably wasting an astronomical amount of water without even realizing it. Fortunately, there are ways to decrease the amount of water you use.
The Lowdown on Low Flow: If you have toilets in your house that predate 1990, they are using a staggering 5 gallons of water per flush. Conversely, an energy efficient low-flow toilet uses 1.5 gallons of water. The professional plumbers at Plumbing Medic can install a low-flow toilet in your home.
On The Laundry List: It is no secret that laundry machines use a considerable amount of water during washes. However, you can conserve water by upgrading to a newer, more energy efficient model.
The Leaky Faucet: Are you tired of hearing that annoying dripping noise coming from your faucet? It is literally trying to tell you that something is wrong. When you have any kind of leak in your house, it is important to have it fixed by a professional as soon as possible. A leaky faucet can waste up to 400 gallons of water per year!
The Grass Could Be Greener: This summer, your lawn and plants will be pining for some water. However, too much water is wasteful and is harmful to vegetation. Make sure your plants and lawn get the amount of water they need.
At Plumbing Medic, we strive to provide you with the most innovative tips for water conservation. Should you encounter any issue or problem with your plumbing system, be sure to give us a call.
