wasting water

Your Home's Biggest Water Wasters - With our current water situation being the way it is, we want to share some ideas to help our customers save water. Here are a few of the most common water wasting culprits we see, how to identify if you have them, and how to fix them... by Dan Martel

Running water while waiting for hot water - If you're running the hot water anywhere in your home while waiting for the hot water to get there, you could be wasting up to 16,000 gallons of water per year!
How we can fix it: With a hot water recirculating system your hot water would be readily available to each fixture when you want it - immediately! Call for an appointment and we will evaluate your situation and give you the best options available for you.

Leaking Toilets - You could be wasting up to 600 gallons a month per toilet! If you put food coloring in your toilet tank (not in the bowl) and after 5 min. the food coloring has seeped into the bowl, you have a leak.
How we can fix it:We will check your toilets and replace the parts that are causing your water waste.

Misc water leaks in and around your home - Many homes have hidden water leaks that add up to unbelievably high total water waste!
How we can fix it: let us check your toilets, faucets, supply lines, hose bibbs, etc - we'll figure out what is causing the meter to run and give you on the spot prices to fix the problem today!


Did you know...

  • If a drip from your faucet fills an eight ounce glass in 15 minutes, it will waste 180 gallons per month and 2,160 gallons per year?
  • Running your washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full and you could save 1000 gallons a month.
  • Letting the water run while you brush your teeth could waste up to 4 gallons a minute - 200 gallons a week for a family of four.
  • A leaky faucet could waste up to 140 gallons a week!
  • Using a hose nozzle and turning the water while you wash your car can save more than 100 gallons at a time.
  • Storing drinking water in the refrigerator rather than letting the tap water run every time you want a cool glass of water could save hundreds of gallons a month.
  • Use of bowl of water to clean fruits & vegetables rather than running water over them. You can reuse this for your house plants.
  • Make sure you know where your master water shut-off valve is located. This could save gallons of water and damage to your home if a pipe were to burst.

"D Martel Plumbing showed up on time (a big plus for us!) and did a great job getting to the bottom of the problem. We had a pretty nasty problem with roots growing into our plumbing, but D Martel was able to get the roots removed and get our toilet back to proper working order in no time...Ben A - Folsom - 3/12/13 - 5 stars
