Easy Steps You Can Take To Save Water
August 27, 2013
The average family of four can use up to 1200 liters of water at home per day. That comes out to 8,400 gallons per week, and nearly 36,000 gallons per month. Granted, not every family uses this much water. The newest shower heads, toilets, dishwashers, and laundry machines all use significantly less water than older models. Also, showers and outdoor watering account for the most intensive water usage, so these statistics tend to drop during colder months. Nevertheless, we all use a lot more water than we're aware of. And whether you're interested in saving money or saving the planet, our team at Tap-Roots Plumbing & Heating think there are some water conservation tips you probably haven't heard about that will help you make adjustments to use less water.
Water Conservation Tips
We all know not to leave the water running while brushing our teeth. We've heard the maxims about when to flush or not to flush our toilets. But you may not know that there are other ways to passively conserve water.
Our homes consist only partially of what we see on a day to day basis. Monitoring our shower times, upgrading our equipment, and conserving grey water are simple ways you can save water. But beneath the surface, behind the walls, and even in the land on which our homes are built, there are many unseen systems, such as your plumbing system, that account for surprising amounts of water loss.
Leak Detection and Leak Repair
Leak detection and leak repair are one of the ways Richmond plumbers like ourselves can reduce your monthly water usage. In an average home, nearly 38,000 liters of water are lost to leaks per year. Quality plumbing repair can save your family hundreds of dollars and thousands of gallons in lost water per year.
