How to Keep Your Water Bills down to a Minimum

The Many Benefits of Regular Plumbing Maintenance

Water conservation is a very trendy subject these days. People finally start to understand that, although America does not have a water problem yet, continuing to waste water at the current rate will definitely raise a problem in the future. There are all sorts of ways that one can conserve water; however, they all pale in comparison to proper plumbing maintenance.

Water leaks, especially the hidden ones, are the biggest cause of water wastage. It takes days, even weeks, until a homeowners may realize that his/her underground pipes are leaking. A close second are leaky faucets and running toilets. A recent study has shown that a running toilet can waste more than 40 gallons of water a night. It is therefore imperative that you have your plumbing elements inspected on a regular basis.

Additionally, you can also look for these signs:

  • your water meter is running even when all faucets are close
  • you hear running water in between your walls
  • you notice inexplicable spikes in your water bills
  • the water pressure is lower than usual
