Water Conservation Tips That Will Save You Money From Your Sarasota Leak Detection And Location Specialists

Do you want to save money on your water bill? Most of us do. Everyone is looking for ways to trim costs and you might be surprised at how much money you can save – and how you can protect one of our most precious natural resources – by installing water saving devices in your home. At Accutech, we encourage everyone to practice water conservation. The benefits are overwhelmingly positive across the board. By saving water in your home, not only will you reduce your bill, you will be pitching in to the overall water conservation effort. Water conservation is vital to our country’s future. Our resources are not unlimited. But let’s get back to the immediate advantage: savings.

When you install or use the following items in your home, you should see declining rates for your water bill. These water-saving devices are simple to install and, while they are small in size, can lead to significant water conservation savings. Together, installing one faucet aerator and one low-flow showerhead can result in an average of 14,000 gallons per year earned.

Sarasota: Leak Detection And Leak Location Screenings Are Part Of A Wise Water Conservation Strategy

As a reminder, part of your water saving strategy at home should be to implement a regular maintenance plan. As part of that plan, we at Accutech advise routine leak inspections. Our skilled and professionally trained leak technicians use only the latest, most advanced Sarasota leak detection and leak location tools to ensure a thorough assessment of your home’s plumbing and structural integrity.

  1. Kitchen/Basin Aerators – Reduce water flow to 1.5 gallons per minute or less. Installing aerators on kitchen and bathroom faucets can reduce water usage in the home by about 4%. You can find aerators at just about any hardware store or big box chain like Home Depot.
  2. Low-Flow Showerhead – Reduce water flow to 1.5 gallons per minute or less and save thousand of gallons per year.
  3. New toilet flapper – Is your toilet flapper over two years old? Over time the flapper in your toilet tank can become worn and not work effectively to stop leaks into the toilet bowl. Replace your flapper and it may stop your toilet from leaking.
  4. Toilet Tank Dye Tablets – Conducting a water-friendly dye-test in toilet tanks can identify costly and wasteful silent leaks. Just follow the directions on the tablets’ packaging. Basically, you simply put a tablet into your tank and wait 15 minutes to see if the dye is still present. If the dye ends up in the toilet bowl, you have a leak. If not, you’re good to go.
  5. Garden Hose Meter – Want to know the amount of water used when watering your garden? Monitor water use by installing a garden water meter to your hose and watch the dial move.
  6. Garden Spray Nozzle – Reduce water waste in the yard. Make sure your garden hose has an automatic shut-off nozzle.
  7. Leak location and detection in Sarasota – Doing routine, annual maintenance like this is a fortifying step for decreasing the chances you will deal with an costly, unexplained leak.
