How to Lower Your Water Bill

Certified Plumbing of Brevard - January 14, 2022 - 0 comments

If you’re always keeping the water running while brushing your teeth, chances are you’re already facing a costly utility bill. However, most people don’t realize that saving on your water bill means more than just not having the tap running all the time or showering less. There can also be underlying issues within your plumbing system causing leaks and other silent culprits that could run up your bill. 

Plumbing repair is not always a piece of cake. However, understanding some of the most common plumbing problems that affect water usage will help you determine how to stop the issue before it gets worse, and whether it’s time to call a plumber.

Leaky Faucet

One of the most common plumbing problems that cause water waste is a leaky faucet. Even a small drip can result in as much as two gallons of water wasted daily, and over time it can lead to thousands of extra dollars spent on your water bill. Leaks happen for a variety of reasons – worn rubber washers or loose handles often cause this problem. Fixing it is easy and inexpensive, and you won’t regret hiring our professional plumbers to take care of it for you so you don’t face any more issues down the road.

Leaking Appliances

Systems within washing machines or dishwashers tend to be discreet. Oftentimes, their issues may often go unnoticed. Water leaks in these appliances can cause all sorts of problems – not only will your electricity bill go up, but the appliances themselves will degrade much faster if they keep running while losing water.

If your washing machine or dishwasher isn’t cleaning as well or if it seems like it’s working harder than usual, get help immediately. These appliances should go through an inspection done by a plumbing professional to determine whether or not they have any issues that are affecting your plumbing system. Putting off this simple task can lead to hundreds of dollars in damages by the day. Certified Plumbing of Brevard is always available for quick 24/7 service for your next plumbing emergency.

Running Toilet

Your water bill will be higher if you have a running toilet, because it takes more water to refill the tank after every flush. It’s probably not something that happens frequently, but over time, this can add up and potentially increase your monthly plumbing expenses.

Also, if your toilets are regularly getting clogged despite newer plumbing parts, the problem may lie in how they were installed. If you have a feeling your toilet isn’t working as it should, give us a call immediately at (321) 676-0812.

Water Pressure Problems 

If you notice decreased water pressure, despite everything else working properly, then there could be something wrong with the internal plumbing within your home. Low water pressure usually means that there is general wear and tear throughout the internal plumbing system which causes leaks and damages. There’s no sense in paying high utility bills while not getting the most out of your water supply that you possibly can.

In this situation, it’s always best to call our professional plumbing service for assistance. While you could attempt plumbing repairs on your own, this is often not recommended. Water pressure within a plumbing system can be very dangerous – if there’s just one mistake in your plumbing work, you could end up flooding your house with water that damages everything from the flooring right down to the foundation.
