Is Your Faucet Draining Your Wallet?
The sound of a faucet leaking can wake you out of a sound sleep. But it’s the scratch of your pen as you write that water bill check that can really give you nightmares.
With water rates set to rise 25% for some residents next month, My Plumber Heating & Air has seen an increase in requests for its “Every Drop Counts” Water Wise Audit. The audit includes a 32-point inspection on leak detection and operation of all water systems on the premises. It also provides suggestions regarding low flow toilets, water saving shower heads, faucet aerators, and more.
The Water Wise Audit is your best defense against a high water bill caused by hidden leaks and unnecessary water consumption. Don’t let your money go down the drain! Call us to schedule your audit TODAY. In the meantime, following are some tips that you can do at home:
- Install low-flow showerheads that flow at 2 gallons per minute or less. A showerhead with a “soap-up” shut off valve will save even more.
- Turn off the faucet while shaving or brushing teeth.
- Get your toilets checked for leaks. A leaking toilet can waste over 200 gallons of water a day.
- Use the automatic dishwasher only for full loads.
- Install low-flow faucet aerators. They reduce flow volume by mixing air with water.
- Use the washing machine only for full loads of laundry.
- Always check for leaks in pipes, hoses, faucets, and couplings. A small drip can waste 20 or more gallons per day.
