To Save Money with Plumbing San Diego, Residents Turn to the Pros
As California faces increasing uncertainty about its water supply, water conservation is on the minds of many San Diego residents. Of course, water conservation is always a sensible move, since saving water can save you money on your bill and with the costs to your home. Here are some ideas for upping your water conservation efforts:
- Watch the Flow – Taps are some of the biggest water wasters in the home and they’re really not always delivering a sensible amount of water. Reduce the flow from your taps with low flow filters without sacrificing pressure. Depending on the amount of sediment in your water, your plumber will fit you with the correct filter.
- Don’t Flush It All Away – With every flush of the toilet, you lose far more water than you need to. Low-flow and dual-flow toilets can cut down on the amount of water by up to 75 percent. Of course, if you have a newer home or toilet, you probably have a low-flow toilet anyway, since 1.6 GPF toilets are the new standard.
- Mind the Heater – You might not expect it, but your water heater is actually one of the biggest wasters in your home. Older models keep a constant supply of water hot, which leads to water waste and elevated energy consumption. Newer models use a completely different mechanism and heat water when it is called for.
