Nothing is more frustrating than a constantly increasing water bill, especially with utility rates at an all-time high. If your monthly expenses are higher than expected, it might be time to consult a professional plumber. While there are many causes of high water bills, the great thing is you can lower them without compromising comfort or function.
At Rooter Man Plumbing, we leverage many years of experience and have seen almost everything. Our plumbing service uses extensive knowledge and innovative tools to inspect, detect, and address plumbing issues before the problem gets out of hand. With the high cost of living, we recommend the following ways to lower your monthly water bill.
This seems obvious, but sometimes we let water drain for no reason. Many people usually brush their teeth or wash their faces with running water, which only adds to utility costs. The most efficient way to save water is to rinse your teeth after brushing or fill the water in the sink to wash your face. In addition, scrub and scrape dirty dishes before turning the water on to rinse. While it may not seem like a big deal, running faucets while doing daily chores can cost you hundreds, if not thousands, in the long run.
Homeowners appreciate a healthy and lush lawn. However, this doesn’t mean overwatering the yard, as it wastes much water. A more efficient and cost-effective alternative is to conserve rainwater and use it to water your plants every few days. You don’t need a high-power irrigation system to maintain curb appeal, so it is essential to consult a plumbing service before installing sprinklers. We can help you choose a suitable rainwater collection system and install an effective irrigation unit to lower your bills without harming your plants.
Soaking in a tub with a glass of wine is relaxing, but you use twice as much water as showering. Although showers can also waste water if you stay there for long, they save tens of gallons monthly, which means more money in your pocket. Households with many members can also benefit from using showers rather than baths, saving thousands of dollars yearly on utility bills and plumbing repairs.
Leaks are residential and commercial buildings’ most common and aggravating plumbing problems. A leaking faucet or pipe not only wastes water but also causes damage to your home. You may have a leak if you receive a higher water bill than usual. The best option is to schedule a professional plumbing inspection, allowing us to check your system for leaks and other damages. Another benefit of hiring a plumber to check for damage is to address other underlying problems before they become more pronounced.
These tips will help lower your water bill and ensure your system remains in tip-top shape year long. Contact us at Rooter Man and discuss a plumbing inspection with our representatives. We leverage innovative tools and skills to guarantee nothing short of excellence in every job.
