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.
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.
