Home Sweet Home (Save Money in the Bathroom)
Q. "Where's the best place in your house to save water?"
A. The bathroom!
The bathroom is the place in the house where you have the most water fixtures and drains - often used throughout the entire day. There are spots in your bathroom that will use less water after they receive attention from a professional plumber such as fixing leaky faucets and getting running toilets fixed immediately.
Two ways to reduce your water usage in the bathroom
Fix leaky faucets: A small leak from a faucet may seem like a minor annoyance you can drown out by just shutting the bathroom door. However, this sort of leak can waste up to 20 gallons per day or more. Get a plumber to stop the leak.
Get running toilets fixed immediately: If a toilet continues to run after it was last used, it’s more than an inconvenience—it wastes a tremendous amount of water. A running toilet will use 2 gallons of water a minute, which will add up to enormous waste in the space of only an hour. Call a plumber for repairs as soon as possible.
Saving water while in the bathroom doesn't take much effort and can help you save tremendously on your water bills. Your Santa Margarita Plumber can also advise you about getting installations that will help reduce your water usage. Randy Gardner SantaMargaritaPlumbing.com 949.858.3818
