DRIPS, LEAKS & WATER WASTERS
Low Flow Toilets:
Your toilet may be the one fixture in your home that uses the most water every day. Consider replacing older toilets with a Low Flow Toilet. The average toilet uses 4-7 gallons of water every time you flush. That's about 1/2 the water with every flush! This could save you 1000's of gallons of water each year.
Those of us that love long showers send a ton of water down the drain. Instead of limiting showering time consider having a low flow shower head installed. A low-flow shower head can save up to 50 gallons of water for every ten minutes you shower. There are even models available that have a shut off valve that will stop the water flow while you lather up.
Running and Leaky Toilets:
Even if you are not ready to replace your toilets you can save some water by making sure they are operating correctly and not leaking. Toilets that run constantly could waste up to 200 gallons of water every day. Leaks can lead to even more water waste and can lead to damage to your home.
Dripping Faucets and Showers:
Shower heads that drip at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 500 gallons of water per year! A leaky faucet that drips one drop per second can waste more than 3000 gallons of water per year!
Plumbing Maintenance Helps Protect Against Inconvenient and Costly Breakdowns:
A little prevention costs a whole lot less than a major repair. This is as important to your plumbing system as it is for your heating and air conditioning system. Regular attention can prevent most plumbing problems with water heaters, toilets, and faucets. Regular maintenance will help ensure that your plumbing fixtures are operating effectively and that leaks are being detected before they cause problems. This is important, as little plumbing problems can really cause some big damage to your home.
We make it convenient and cost effective with the addition of a Plumbing Check Up to our Maintenance Agreements.
