“Since we started this mission, we have replaced 514 leaking flappers, saving Austin as much as 1,542,000 gallons of water a month. We are not going to stop until we reach our goal of saving 3 million gallons per month.”
Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
Radiant Plumbing & Air Conditioning of Austin, Texas is on a mission to save 3 million gallons of water by replacing 1000 leaking flappers for free.
The drought of 2011-2012 has reached a critical stage and a running toilet can use as much as 200 gallons per day. Letʼs assume the average is only half that. This would mean that replacing 1,000 ﬂappers on running toilets would save Austin 100,000 gallons of water per day. That’s 3 million gallons per month.
"When we did the math and realized that 3 million gallons of water per month could be saved by changing 1000 leaky flappers, this was something we just had to do," said Sarah Casebier, co-owner of Radiant.
Radiant Plumbing is a small plumbing company with only a dozen trucks, but they are prepared to install 1,000 new ﬂappers on the ﬂush valves of 1,000 Austin toilets because they know how to do it. And it will make a huge difference.
If you suspect that you have a leaking toilet all you have to do is call Radiant, and they will come test your toilet for free. If it is a leaking flapper, it will be replaced for free.
