Save Water and Save Money by Checking Your Plumbing Fixtures

According to Water Sense (a partner of the EPA):

  • If your toilet is running constantly, you could be wasting 200 gallons of water or more every day.
  • If your toilet is leaking, the cause is most often an old, faulty toilet flapper. Over time, this inexpensive rubber part decays, or minerals build up on it. It’s usually best to replace the whole rubber flapper—a relatively easy, inexpensive do-it-yourself project that pays for itself in no time.
  • If you do need to replace the entire toilet, look for a WaterSense labeled model. If a family of four replaces its older, inefficient toilets with new WaterSense labeled ones, it could save more than 16,000 gallons per year. Retrofitting the house could save the family approximately $2,000 in water and wastewater bills over the lifetime of the toilets.

For more facts about how to save water in your home, click on the link below. You can do a lot of these things yourself if you’re handy or you can have Total Comfort Plumbing do a Plumbing Tune-Up and take care of most things for you.
