Happy New Year! As we enter 2021, let’s take a look at some home plumbing tips for you to incorporate into your household. Here are some Eco friendly & money saving tips!
GOING GREEN – Water is one of our most precious natural resources. Any time you get a chance to save water, do so! With many of you preparing to do a kitchen, laundry, or bathroom remodel make sure to incorporate water efficient appliances. For example using water efficient faucets and shower heads. For outdoor upgrades, install a drip irrigation system instead of a new sprinkler system.
FLUSH YOUR WATER HEATER – While your water heater should last at least 10 years, failure to keep up proper maintenance will have you looking for a new one after 5 or 6 years. An annual flush and and check up can save you hassle, money, and extend the life of your water heater.
CLOG FREE DRAINS – The hassle of clogged drains causes major stress and major dents in your bank account. Get ahead in 2021 by installing mesh screens or strainers in your sink, tub, shower, etc. as well as not putting anything down your toilet or drain (like grease, baby wipes, razors). Using bacterial drain cleaners regularly.
