It’s All About The Water

In our business we think about water and our main purpose is to provide our customers with the best possible piping infrastructure available. We cannot, however, help you conserve water, and conserving water is critical to us all. Now, we all know about the fountains in Vegas and that is about the worst use of water that you could imagine, but remember, every quarter you put in the slot machine allows them to pay for it. Believe it or not, when you waste water in your home, you are essentially doing the same thing, except you don’t have a slot machine to offset the cost. Wasting water is completely avoidable, and there are many simple tricks that can easily help with your water bill.

Saving Water

Now, we are not suggesting that when you take a shower, it is wasting water. An excessively long shower, however, is not recommended for saving money on your water bill. The best way to save water is to simply reduce the amount you use. It is that simple. There are many ways to save water and a few of these trick will help.

  1. dreamstime_xxl_28925851Check your faucets for low flow and water saving devices. The water saving faucet aerators are pretty common these days but if you have an older home, you may benefit from these water saving upgrades.
  2. Fill a plastic bottle with water and some rocks and put it in your toilet. Toilets have come along way in the last ten years as far as efficiency but older toilets can use up to 6 gallons of water every time you flush.
  3. Check all of your pipes for leaks. It is easy to find leaks when they are spraying water across the room. Smaller leaks that only drip occasionally can be a challenge but will drastically affect your water usage.
  4. Use water saving fertilizer on your lawn. Your lawn is a major source of wasted water in America. Utilizing special fertilizers and watering sparingly is the best way to combat high water bills. Xeriscaping has become a popular alternative to lawns and is much more water friendly.                         

Saving water is about much more than simply utilizing little tricks. It is about changing the way you think about water usage. If your pipes could use some attention it is definitely time to call the repipe experts at California Repipe Specialists!
