Plumbing Hacks to Conserve Water & Save Money

Posted on: August 22, 2016

Cost-Saving Tips from Our Phoenix Plumbers

Phoenix plumbersAs an Arizona homeowner, you know how important it is to conserve the amount of water we use on a daily basis. Turning water conservation into a way of life, especially as the never-ending drought continues in Arizona, is crucial to ensuring Arizona meets our needs for the future. What are you doing to help conserve the water?

Below are some ways individuals can play their part in improving the health of the Colorado River and continuing a healthy of supply of water to the people it serves. Take a look at the plumbing hacks our Phoenix plumbers have put together:

Phoenix plumbersInsulate Your Water Heater

Just as you insulate the rest of your home, insulating your water heater is a quick and simple plumbing hack to save money on your energy expense. If the home has an older water heater, almost fifty dollars per year can be saved by wrapping your H20 heater with an insulated jacket.

Install Low-Flow Showerheads

Phoenix plumbersAccording to the Environmental Protection Agency, an average family could save nearly 3,000 gallons of water every year by installing WaterSense showerheads. Almost all shower heads have a plumbing water pressure of two and a half gallons gpm, but a WaterSense showerhead is only one and a half gpm—yet provides the same amount of water pressure.

If every household in the United States installed low-flow showerheads, we could save well over 250 billion gallons of water each year. Low-flow showerheads are an inexpensive plumbing hack and can be found for as little as $10.

Phoenix plumbersInstall Low-Flow Faucets

WaterSense doesn’t only make showerheads that help you save—they also make sink faucets! By switching to a low-flow sink faucet you could save about 700 gallons of water, per home, every year. That’s equivalent to 40 showers!

Install Water-Efficiency Toilets

Phoenix plumbers

Installing water-efficient toilets can shrink family water use by almost 14,000 gallons per year. WaterSense certified toilets start at around a $100 and installation of one is a surprisingly simple task—especially with the help of AC by J’s Phoenix plumbers.

 

 

Phoenix plumbersRepair Leaks

Small water leaks add up fast. Think about it—one drop per second equals about five gallons per day! This adds up to approximately 2,000 gallons of water waste every year. Fixing a leak is probably the most obvious plumbing hack, but that doesn’t make it any less important!
