Water Conservation Tips
Posted on September 11th, 2014
Homeowners push “minor” plumbing issues under the rug and forget about them. Did you know that a leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day? This is both harmful to the environment and it is also taking a chunk of cash out of your wallet. If there is an usual increase of water consumption noted on your water bill, you are probably wasting water without even knowing it. Below are some tips that will help you conserve water.
Inspect Your Bathroom for Leaks
Many leaking toilets go unnoticed because the water quietly runs from the tank to the bowl. Check each bathroom in your house regularly for leaks. Our plumbers can patch that up in no time!
Don’t Keep the Water Running
It is important to turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth, washing your face or shaving. However, most people take this advice with a grain of salt and keep the water flowing. Turning the water off during these daily activities could save a whopping 20,000 gallons of water per year!
EPA Stamp of Approval
If you are remodeling your bathroom, always choose plumbing fixtures that are more energy efficient. Plumbing fixtures that have been endorsed by the EPA are sure to help you conserve water in your home.
