Celebrate World Plumbing Day!

Are you celebrating World Plumbing Day? We are! And to show our appreciation and love for the industry we have put together a few plumbing reminders that you and your family should be practicing on a daily basis.

Conserve Water!

  • Did you know that on average about 14% of indoor water use is lost to leaks? It is extremely important to take a survey of your home and have any leaky faucets, drains or shower heads repaired immediately.

  • Switch over to a low-flow shower head. By doing so, you can save about 15 gallons of water for every 10 minute shower you or a family member takes.

  • There’s a big difference between front-loading and top-loading washing machines. Believe it or not, top-loaders can use up to 20 gallons more water per load.

Flush This, Not That!

  • Toilet tissue and human waste are the only two things meant to be flushed down the toilet.

  • Refrain from flushing other objects such as cotton swabs, dental floss and baby wipes as they are difficult to break down and can clog the drain.

  • Remember to instill proper flushing habits in your children at a young age. Kids tend to experiment by flushing anything they can get their hands on and this can lead to major plumbing problems.
