Lacey WA Plumbing FAQ: How Can I Use Water More Efficiently?

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Homeowners throughout the Lacey, WA area are always looking for ways to improve their energy efficiency. As one of the leading plumbing companies in the area, we are often asked how to use water more efficiently throughout the home. While repairing any leaks is a first step, there are further steps you can take as well. We’d like to review a few of these in this week’s post. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. For professional Lacey, WA plumbing services, call the experts at Brooks Plumbing today!

  • Install a low-flow toilet. Also known as a low-fllow toilet, a low-flow device can save you substantial amounts of water. Your toilet is responsible for nearly one-third of your water consumption. As one of the most used plumbed appliances, it tends to use a lot of water; a standard toilet uses about 3.5 gallons of water per flush. Take a minute and think of dumping even 3 plastic gallon containers down the drain every time you flush. If it seems like a lot (and it is), consider a low-flow toilet. It cuts your toilet water usage in less than half, down to 1.7 gallons per flush. Considering how much you use your toilet, installing a low flow appliance may end up saving you significant money in the long term.
  • Fill up your dishwasher. Running your dishwasher when it’s only partially full not only increases the wear and tear on your device, it also wastes water that could be used elsewhere. Taking simple steps such as this throughout the household can help you eliminate water inefficiency.
  • Install low-flow showerheads and faucets. Make sure you’re getting the most out of your plumbed appliances by using energy efficient attachments and modifications. Their combined use can greatly improve your water efficiency throughout the household.

Saving water is not only good for your utility bill, but also for the surrounding environment. If you’d like to learn more about how to improve your energy efficiency throughout the home, call the Lacey, WA plumbing experts at Brooks Plumbing today! Contact Brooks Plumbing today!
