We all want to protect and preserve our environment. That means we, as homeowners, do what we can to use less energy and water. The fact that saving our ecology also saves us money on our utility bills is icing on the cake! The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has several DIY (do-it-yourself) guidelines for property owners.
Before You Call Plumbing Services
If your water bill seems to be higher than normal, you may have a water leak. Look at your water usage; if a family of four exceeds 12,000 gallons/month, there may be a serious problem. You probably have a leak if:
- Your water meter changes during a time when no one is home.
- Food coloring in the toilet tank appears in the bowl after 10 minutes.
- The toilet flapper appears worn-out.
- Your shower head leaks at the connection during use.
- Your garden hose connection leaks when you run water.
Call Plumbing Services
If your home inspection yields no visible signs of a water leak, it’s time to call your residential plumbing professional. For example, the EPA suggests that any shower head that leaks when not in use most likely needs the attention of your professional plumber.
If your home inspection yields no visible signs of a water leak – but you know there is a water leak somewhere – it’s time to call your plumbing professional. He or she can determine the cause of the leak and together, you’ll decide on the best solution.
