Did you make a Resolution for the New Year? How about a Home Resolution or even better Plumbing Resolution??
We all strive to make healthier goals for each new year. More water, More exercise, Better food choices. How about this year lets not stop at “self-improvement” lets try new ways to improve our home. Plumbing changes not only conserves water but can also lower bills for 2017.
MAKE THE SWITCH TO MORE EFFICIENT TOILET
Did you know that 30% of water use comes from your toilets? At 1.6 gallons per flush older models tend to use quiet a bit more water than the newer models. They are using only 1.28 gallons per flush. The switch can be seen within your water bill soon after installation.
PURCHASE A LOW-FLOW SHOWER HEAD
During a shower is the last time you want to consider saving money!! You are there to unwind, relax and cleanse. But did you know if you swap to a “low-flow” you can save half a gallon per minute!!! Also this saving can be seen in your energy bill reducing the demand on the water heater.
UPDATE THE WATER HEATER
Take a guess, What is the second largest expense in the household? The Water Heater, It is second to heating and cooling expenses. Yes, we all know that the initial purchase puts a dent in the checking account but the savings will outweigh that the long run.
FIXING DRIPS OR LEAKS
We have all experienced a leaking or dripping faucet!!! Just imagine those water drops as coins going down the drain and that may prompt us to fix the leak sooner rather than later!!!! You will then appreciate those savings once that leaky drip is fixed.
