Tips On Water Savings From The “Real” Plumber

Posted on 30th April 2014

Whether you’re in for great savings on your water bill or you have the environment in mind, there’s never a bad time to start thinking about saving water. There really are a wide variety of things that you can do to reduce the amount of water you use in your home. Emergency plumbers know just what saving on water means and if you’re ever in need of their service, don’t be afraid to ask about some ways that you can make your home more efficient. However, there’s no reason that you have to wait any longer than now to cut down on your water usage. With the following tips you’ll be able to make a difference in the world and also on your water bill. Many of the solutions and suggestions are simple to implement, others may take a bit of money but the savings will be well worth it in the end.

Is there a leak in your home?
Some leaks are horrific and you’ll know because of the ensuing water flood that you’ll have to deal with. Other leaks are more discrete and require a bit of observation and an open ear. It’s important that you do regular leak checks to ensure that everything is functioning as it should. If you hear anything or suspect that there indeed is a leak, don’t hesitate to call Emergency Plumber Sydney and have us check it out for you. In case something is wrong, get it repaired right away. You’ll be surprised at how much water you can save just by fixing the small leaks around your house.

Electric water sprinklers aren’t so great.
Sure, they may save you time, but they aren’t saving you money. Rather than having your sprinkler scheduled to go off come rain or shine, it’s best to take care of things yourself. The weather in the summer is indeed great and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to take it all in while watering your flowers when necessary, rather than leaving things up to the sprinklers.

Too much water coming out your shower?
Another area where you can save drastically on water is in the shower. Not only is it wiser to cut down your shower times to about 5 minutes per shower, but the pressure of your shower can also be one of the things that is causing you to waste a lot of water. Check to ensure that the pressure isn’t too high. If you are uncertain about how to check the pressure, contact Emergency Plumbers and we’ll have a look at it for you and assist with any changes you’d like to make.

Put the dishwasher to work
In many cases, the dishwasher will use less water than you would use washing your dishes by hand. This is one thing that many people are not aware of and thus when trying to save water, they give their dishwasher a break, washing dishes by hand, not realising that by doing so they are actually using more water. In order to maximize your water savings, ensure that you stack the dishes well and have the dishwasher filled to it full capacity before switching it on.

Your water meter knows best
Checking your water meter regularly is also a great idea. This is one of the ways you will be able to detect if something isn’t functioning quite like it should. Spikes in your meter should be taken seriously and if something doesn’t seem right, assistance should be sought right away.
