4 Ways to Save Water With Our Help

Worker fixing a leaking faucet.

Water may be essential, but it’s also expensive. When you use more water than you intend, it shows up on your next water bill. We’re going to help you find out why that’s happening, how you can save more water (and money), and whether or not you’ll need Montclair, CA plumbing services to make that happen.

Detect and Plug Various Water Leaks

Small water leaks can add up to big numbers. One drop of wasted water per second quickly adds up to nearly 3,000 gallons of water wasted every single year. If you shower every other day, that’s an entire year’s worth of showering.

Minor leaks add up quickly, especially if you have leaks in more than one area. We can help by inspecting your plumbing, locating leaks, and finding the right solution to seal them up. No more wasted water; no more wasted money.

Save Water With Tankless Water Heaters

You turn on the hot water faucet, but cold water comes out. You have to wait a few seconds and essentially purge the cold water to get to your hot water. That’s water waste, and it likely happens a few times a day, totaling around 1,000 times per year.

Tankless water heaters can be placed closer to main fixtures, such as your kitchen sink or main bathroom, resulting in fewer cold water purges. Since you don’t have to flush a tankless water heater as you do with a traditional tank heater, you don’t have to waste dozens of gallons of water during maintenance each year, either.

Fix Slow Leaking Faucets

Your faucet has been leaking a little bit, but as we’ve talked about, a little adds up to a lot in a short amount of time. Leaking faucets aren’t the same as leaking pipes. For starters, you can actually see the leak.

There could be multiple issues with your faucet, including an aged or bad O-ring or corroded valve seal. Either way, our plumbers will be able to find out the root cause and fix your leaking faucets to reduce water waste.

Install an Automatic Shut-Off Valve

Worried about wasting water while you’re away on holiday? It happens, and it’s something you don’t know about until you make it home. If all goes well, leaks will be kept to areas where they can be cleaned up easily, but you can also have certain areas of your water system that leak and cause damage to your home.

That’s why we offer automatic shut-off valves. You don’t even have to be home to use them, and they’re able to save wasted water and expensive repair bills.

More Efficient Water System

It’s time to find out just how much water you’re really using. With regular maintenance and plumbing repair services for your kitchen, bathroom, and more, you’ll finally be in control of how much water you’re using. Remember: drips add up quickly, so don’t put it off.
