New Year's resolutions provide us with a reason to implement positive changes in our life. However, these positive life alterations don't just have to stop at personal changes; they can also apply to your plumbing.
Below we have included a list of resolutions you should put into effect in the new year and moving forward to ensure the health of your plumbing system, house, and bank account.
I Will Get a Maintenance Check
Having an experienced technician perform maintenance checks can be highly beneficial to your plumbing system. Unbeknownst to you, your pipes and appliances may be corroding or getting damaged from the inside out, which could lead to burst pipes or nasty leaks that flood your home. By spending on annual checkups, you can avoid future disasters that are expensive to fix.
I Will Commit to Reducing Water Waste
If you commit to reducing your water waste this new year, not only will you be going green by taking less water from our waterways and reducing your carbon footprint, but you will also keep some green in your pockets.
By upgrading to WaterSense labeled faucet aerators, showerheads, toilets, and fixing leaks, you can save more than 15,000 gallons of water and save as much as $380 on your water and electricity bill.
I Will Get my Leaks Fixed Immediately
Sometimes we may see a leak and feel that it doesn't need to be handled right away; however, this type of thinking can put your family and wallet at risk.
Leaks are known to cause structural damage in the home. Water exposure can weaken your walls and wreck your floors. If not handled promptly, a leak may even cause your floor or ceiling to collapse, which will not only necessitate an expensive repair but could potentially threaten the lives of you and your loved ones.
Only .5% of the world's fresh water is drinkable, and according to the EPA, In the United States, we lose around 900 billion gallons of that water to leaks nationwide every year. By fixing your leaks fast, you will not only help protect the environment but will ensure we still have drinkable water for generations to come.
If you allow a leak to persist, water won't be the only thing you're losing, as leaks will also drain your bank account. The EPA found that by quickly contacting an experienced plumber (like the ones at EZ Flow Plumbing, LLC) to fix your leak instead of letting it fester, you can save around 10% on your water bill.
