How to save plumbing money:
Is your plumbing money going down the drain? We’re going to tell you how you can save money on plumbing! When it comes to leaky faucets, high powered shower heads, and many other things, it’s best to fix the problem before you keep letting money run down the drain. We have narrowed down a couple small changes that will help you tons when it comes to cutting down your plumbing bill.
Fix Leaky Faucets
The first and most important tip we can give you is to get leaky faucets fixed right away! These are going to eat up your money faster than anything else. Not everyone is especially handy, so it’s important to hire a professional plumbing service like Rite Rate to take over. It will save you big bucks in the long run.
Replace Shower Heads
You can also replace your shower head with a slow-flow shower head. This will cut down on the water going down the drain while you shower, and ultimately your allotted plumbing money. Regular shower heads emit around 2.5 gallons of water per minute and the approximate shower time is 8 minutes. That is 20 gallons of water in one shower. There are shower heads on the market that emit only 1.25 which more than cuts the waste and usage in half.
Check the Toilet
A great way to check your toilet and make sure that it is not leaking or running, which wastes water, is to put a couple of drops of food coloring into the tank. In a few minutes check and see if there is any color in the bowl. If there is you need to get it fixed as soon as possible but, fortunately, the pieces are inexpensive and Rite Rate can fix it in no time!
These few tips will help to dramatically decrease your water bill. They are not expensive fixes and this small amount you need to pay now will help you save more money down the road. Don’t hesitate to call our professionals at Rite Rate if you notice a high water bill, or you’re having plumbing problems!
