Water Saving Tips from Your Trusted Local Plumber

water saving tips charlestownPlumbing is basically the installation and repair of pipes or fixtures for the distribution of a household or facility’s potable water. The professional plumber who does the installation and repair can also do drain cleaning, venting, waste water disposal, and heating installation and repair among others.

We all know how important a working plumbing supply is at home since water is one of the basic things we all need every day. The perfect plumbing system works well by distributing water and saves it as well.

Water Saving Tips

Here are some basic tips to help you save water in your home or building:

  • Choose the most suitable water level for you washers – this is often small, medium, or large. Most HE top-loaders and front-loaders have auto-load sensors which automatically determines the load size as well as the amount of water needed.
  • As you scrub the dishes, turn off the faucet and just turn it on again when it’s time to rinse
  • Take shorter showers and turn it off as you shave – An average American uses about 25,000 gallons of water each year. You can help reduce water wastage by simply making changes in your daily routine. Shorten your shower time by 2 minutes, turn off water as you soap and shave to save even more.
  • You can also install water saving devices in faucets, shower heads, and toilets – these gadgets are inexpensive and easy to install. Remember long hot showers use about 5 to 10 gallons of water every minute. Water-saving limits usage as much as 2.5 gallons per minute.
  • Check your pipes, toilets and faucets for any leak – even the smallest leak could create havoc to your water bill. Check for possible leaks on your pipes, toilets and faucets to ensure no water ever goes to waste.
  • Don’t use the toilet as your wastebasket – any foreign object that goes inside your toilet would cause costly plumbing services. Have a wastebasket inside the toilet for your tissues, diapers, ashes, and sanitary napkins among others.
  • Insulate your water pipes – insulating your water pipes is inexpensive and easy. Pre-slit foam pipe insulation. You will get hot water faster and it avoids wasting water as it heats up.

Oftentimes plumbing problems can be avoided if your plumbing fixtures and appliances are properly installed and maintained.
