Water Conservation Tips

August 19, 2015

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that household leaks amount to 1 trillion gallons of water wasted each year. This is due to the fact that homeowners think leaks are not wasting a lot of water. Clearly, that is not the case. Wasting water is not good for the earth’s water supply or your wallet. If you have noticed a dramatic increase of water consumption on your bill, there is probably a leak somewhere in your house. Below are some tips that will help you conserve water.

Check the Porcelain Throne

Leaky toilets usually don’t make noise. That is why many homeowners do not even realize that their toilet is leaking. It is important to inspect each bathroom in your home regularly for leaks. If our plumbers spot any leaks, they can fix it in no time!

Turn the Water Off

Think of how many times a day you run the water in your home. It’s a lot, right? When you are brushing your teeth or washing your face, only use the water when you need to rinse off. Turning the water off can save a whopping 20,000 gallons of water per year!

Does the EPA Approve?

If you plan on renovating your bathroom, pick plumbing fixtures that are more efficient. When you choose plumbing fixtures that are endorsed by the EPA, they are bound to conserve water in your home.
