Save Water and Money with These Plumbing Tips

Plumbing Tools Many homeowners assume that if their plumbing system is dependable, then it is also efficient. However, that is not always the case. Maximum efficiency means conserving as much water and energy as possible while still operating effectively. This also equates to lower utility bills each month. By simply upgrading some of your plumbing fixtures, you can protect both the environment and your wallet.

Replace Standard Toilets

Go ahead and take a look to find out what model and year your toilet is if you don’t already know. If you have an older model or one that is not “low-flow” or “dual flush,” then you may want to replace your toilet and start reaping the savings. If you aren’t ready or willing to replace your toilet but hear that it is running when you aren’t using it, you’ll need to at least investigate the issue and repair any leaks that may be inside your tank and wasting significant water.

Replace Faucets and Showerheads

Another way to conserve a notable amount of water is to upgrade your faucets throughout your home. There are simple devices called aerator faucets that screw to your shower head and reduce overflow. A low-flow showerhead model can save a family of four as much as 20,000 gallons of water each year compared to a standard showerhead.

Don’t assume that you’ll have to skimp on water pressure when using an energy efficient faucet. There are new models that can ensure you get your dishes clean while reducing your monthly bills at the same time.

Locate Hidden Leaks and Fix Leaky Faucets

Water leaks are not always easy to detect. While you may hear the bathroom faucet dripping while you are trying to go to sleep, there are other leaks that are just as harmful but more hidden from your eyes and hears. Make a habit to check your water meter to compare how much water is used on a daily basis. If you see your water meter or your water bill suddenly skyrocket, it is time to hire a plumber. This can be the biggest cause of wasted water in your home!

Ready to upgrade your faucets and toilets to a more modern, water-saving model? Let us guide you. We value the importance of making sure your plumbing is not only working well, but also providing optimal efficiency in terms of water and energy. Call today to learn more!

Great job - again. Second time using Plumbing. Matt and Fernando came on time, did great work, and the pricing was very fair. They were funny, professional, prompt and thorough. Would highly recommend these guys for any plumbing needs.

Stephanie Malhotra

These guys are great. Very responsive and cost is reasonable. Plumbers and electricians always make me nervous - you never know what you are going to get! But I'm so happy we've finally found a plumber we trust!

Andrew Hodges

These guys are awesome. Scheduled an appointment to have a plumbing situation inspected for a house being bought. They were on time, communicate well and gave great guidance! Do recommend!

Michael Plumbing and his crew are the real deal. They quote quickly and accurately, and in return for your money spent with them, you get a pro job. The added bonus is that they are skilled and dedicated plumbers, not just a bunch of fellas that happen to be doing plumbing work to make $$ this week. We've used plumbing for multiple plumbing jobs at an office park, and also for residential issues.

I had a pipe burst in my home with water spewing everywhere. Plumbing came out right away and took care of the problem quickly. Probably saved me tons of money in home improvement repairs. Service was great, price was awesome. Would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for your help.

We have used Plumbing several times and we have always been very satisfied with their service. We had a Rheem 50 gallon gas water heater installed several months ago and most recently a new toilet in our guest bath. Each time they arrive as scheduled, are very courteous and everything is done very professionally and in a timely fashion.
