Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
Small changes in home maintenance and care can help save water and and money when executed correctly according to Neerings Plumbing, a local plumbing company. They offer the following four tips for reducing water bills and saving energy this summer.
1. Check faucets, pipes and toilets for leaks. 20 gallons of water a day can be wasted from just a small drip from a worn faucet washer. Residents are encouraged to contact a 24 hour plumber in Draper, Utah, like Neerings Plumbing if leaks are suspected. Big leaks can lead to mold buildup, which can impair breathing and exacerbate allergies.
2. Dishwashers and laundry machines should only be run at full loads. Adjust water settings for partial loads.
3. Plant drought tolerant and native plants that are accustomed to the Utah climate. These plants will need less water which equals more savings on water expenses.
4. Turn off faucets while teeth brushing, shaving, or washing vegetables and cut four minutes off shower time to save 20 to 40 gallons of water.
