Taking care of the environment is something that we all need to take seriously, and we are all in this together. Since Earth Day has recently passed, we thought we’d give you a few good plumbing tips that will help you save water around the house. The good thing is that helping the environment also helps you out to by saving money. Here are some quick tips for saving water from Mattoni Plumbing.
Install water-efficient products
High-efficiency products such as fixtures and appliances help you save water in your home. It is estimated that if everyone installed these in their homes, we could save billions of gallons each year in the US alone. For instance, your toilet could account for 30% of your home water usage each month, and switching to a more efficient model will greatly cut down your water bill. Not only does it save you money, you might even get a tax break too.
Get your leaks fixed!
Saving money on water around the home could be as simple as getting plumbers to come fix your leaks. Did you know that even mild leaks could cause thousands of gallons of water to be wasted each year? Not only is this useless wasting of such a precious resource, it is also costing you money. If you are noticing higher-than-average bills, this could be the culprit.
Fill the sink to wash dishes
One of the worst water wasting sins is leaving the faucet running while doing dishes. Too many people these days don’t realise how wasteful this is. It’s probably because so many grew up with dishwashers that we don’t even pay attention to it. Fill the sink up with some water and soap, and wash the dishes in that instead of leaving the water running constantly. You’ll save yourself a few gallons each day or more.
Fresh water is our most precious gift, and we need to do all we can to conserve it. It is possible to live a convenient and modern lifestyle while still being respectful to the environment. The good thing is that learning how to save water around the house also saves you money. Homeowners and their plumbers need to work together to do the right thing, so make sure you find a great company to work with!
