We know that as more people embrace a green lifestyle, they are looking for ways to save the earth’s natural resources. Water conservation is one way to help the environment and also to save money on your water bill. At Bill Howe, the preferred San Diego plumbing company, we offer several ways that you can save both water and money…
Tip One – Faucet Aerators
Faucet aerators or tap aerators spread out the flow of water into numerous tiny drops. The aerator reduces water usage by preventing one large stream of water. Check every faucet in your home to make certain they are utilizing a water-saving aerator.
Tip Two – Toilet Flappers
The toilet flapper is a rubber device that fits over the moving part of the flushing valve. The flapper allows all the water in the bowl to drain out. To prevent leaks and a large water bill, check to make certain that the flapper closes completely when flushing the toilet. If the flapper doesn’t close, the toilet will continue to run, wasting water.
Also keep in mind that over time the flapper can deteriorate so it is also important to check it periodically to see if it needs replacing. To ensure proper installation, a San Diego plumbing company can help!
Tip Three – Insta-Hot System
An Insta-Hot System gets the hot water to the faucet very quickly, which cuts down on water wasted by traditional faucets that take time to heat. By installing such a system on either a kitchen or bathroom sink faucet, you save water.
