Waste Less Water With These Professional Plumbing Services!
Water conservation efforts seem to ramp up around Earth Day every year. But many conscientious homeowners aim to waste less water all year round. The thing about water conservation is that every little bit helps. And it all adds up quickly. Stopping a slow but steady faucet leak can save hundreds of gallons of water per year. And, as many homeowners know, saving water means saving money on the water bill. This is why homeowners should consider the following plumbing services to help them save more water – and more money!
General Plumbing Inspections
A home’s plumbing system is just like any other system; it requires some upkeep to keep it healthy and functioning properly. Unfortunately, many homeowners overlook the plumbing system until something goes wrong. By that time, it’s too late to be proactive. The only option is reactive, and that usually means that the bank account is about to take a serious hit.
This is why general plumbing inspections are essential. When done once or twice a year, they can ensure that a home’s plumbing system is well-functioning. Professional plumbers can also spot potential problem areas and alert the homeowner as to their options. Taking action early on plumbing problems means saving money and preventing a massive headache.
Leak Detection and Leak Repair
One of the most critical services local plumbers offer is leak detection and repair. Since the vast majority of the plumbing system is out of sight, it can be hard to determine where a leak is— or even if the system leaks at all. Most of the time, homeowners are alerted to a leak by a spike in the water bill, a wet spot on the floor, wall, or ceiling, and low water pressure. And while a wet spot can give an estimated area of the leak, it still requires special equipment to determine the extent of the damage.
This is why leak detection needs specialized sound equipment, often in conjunction with small cameras inserted into the pipes to look at the leak. Once a plumber knows where the leak is and how bad it is, he or she can go about fixing it.
Toilet Upgrades and Repairs
Even if there’s nothing wrong with a toilet, it can still be wasting water. Modern toilets use significantly less water than older toilets. So, those homes with old toilets could be flushing money down the drain every time the toilet gets used. Luckily, toilet upgrades are quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive. Modern low-water toilets are extremely effective and only use an average of 1.28 gallons per flush compared to the average of 3.5 gallons on older toilets.
Those homeowners with faulty toilets can also save a lot of money with a simple toilet repair. Often the issue with toilets means that water is being wasted. This is usually because of a faulty flapper causing a leak that flows down the toilet drain. A local plumber can fix this issue in no time, saving the homeowner money by preventing water waste.
