    Plumbing understands that with every day people fall into the same routines and sometimes get a little slack with their conservation of resources If everyone takes a little effort to save resources like water then there will be enough resources for everyone These are simple tips and tricks to help you save water in your home Save Water Inside Turn off the water when you brush your teeth You can also save up to 8 gallons of water a day simply by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and at night Do the same while you shave Shorten your showers by one or two minutes Most shower heads say how many GPM that they jet out Take that number and multiply it by 30 to determine how many gallons you are saving Then figure out what the break down of your water bill would be to determine how much you would be saving by shaving off the two minutes of shower time Use low flow showerheads According to the new EPA WaterSense initiative the average bathroom sink faucet flows at a rate of two gallons a minute You can slow that flow by installing a new low flow faucet Fix leaky Faucets Using 1 4 milliliter ml estimate as the volume of a faucet drip One gallon 15 140 drips One liter 4 000 drips Repair running toilets A running toilet can waste two gallons of water per minute A silent leak in a toilet can waste up to 7 000 gallons of water per month Wash only full loads of laundry The average family does six to eight loads of laundry a week A standard washing machine uses about sixty gallons of H2O per wash while a water efficient machine uses about forty gallons Run only full loads of dishes A single full load uses more water and more energy than a half load but a full load uses far less energy and water than two half loads Install low flush toilets and water efficient washing machines Energy Star washers have the government seal of approval for efficiency and a full list is available on the Energy Star website note that list includes some models that haven t yet come out The best models have a high Modified Energy Factor MEF score meaning they re energy efficient and a low Water Factor meaning they use the least amount of water possible Install a circulating pump or an instant hot or a tankless water heater to get hot water faster Many tankless water heaters come with leak detection shut off valves to limit damage to the property a temperature lock to prevent unauthorized changes to water temperature and a high certification rating with Energy Star These simple tricks can save you hundreds each year depending on your regular use Next time we ll take you outside to save you water and energy The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Plumber in Murrieta CA Posted on October 30 2012 by webeditors in Helpful Tips and Hints

  • Drain Maintenance & Sewer Cleaning
    This is because it is only through these drains and sewers that all the waste is disposed This article seeks to show how drain maintenance and sewer cleaning is simple yet essential Anyone interested in maintaining a clean drain system should probably start by preventing debris and foreign objects from slipping down the drain this move will end up preventing most of the clog and odor problems caused by such blockage You can start by placing a screen or strainer in each drain to prevent unwanted items from slipping down the drain pipe and reminding every household member to remove hair stuck in the bathroom sinks tubs and showers after use Another preventive measure is by wiping food particles from the kitchen sink and discarding them in a proper manner while ensuring you never pour grease or cooking fat down the drain as this move will congeal the pipe and eventually cause clogs and foul odor emission Another way of protecting the drain and drain pipes from residue buildup is by pouring extremely hot water down the drain One should do this once a day in a kitchen where the sink is heavily used and less frequently drains that are not used very often Once a week treat your drain with a cup of distilled white vinegar or half a cup of baking soda with a drizzle of hot water Let the substance sit for half an hour before washing it down by turning on the hot water faucet for a full minute Pull the drain stoppers out routinely and clean them with a scrub brush and hot soapy water Allow a light steady drip of water from the faucet to run down the drain constantly during extremely cold weather if your pipes are near an exterior wall or unprotected
