If you’re experiencing mysterious rises in your water bills, then it may be time for a remodel plumbing job in your property’s bathrooms
When you turn your shower off and still notice water dripping out of it moments later, then it’s a sign that your property is going through some kind of pipe leak. The first thing you should always do in this situation is simply tighten your showerhead and see if that halts the dripping, but if that doesn’t work then you may need to call in professional plumbing specialists to help you identify where your leak is originating.
A lot of homeowners in Northern Utah also haven’t updated their showers and bathroom fixtures in many years, and this can end up costing you in monthly expenses when you compare the types of savings you could obtain through showers that are specifically made to conserve water. These days a lot of people are using WaterSense showerheads that reduce the gallons per minute by about half a gallon as compared to standard showerheads!
There truly are many different ways in which your bathroom fixtures could be costing you extra money on a monthly basis, and the Beehive Plumbing team is always available to conduct efficiency tests at your home to see where you could be making some improvements.
Below are some of the ways in which your bathrooms could be wasting money!
Older Toilets Can End Up Wasting Upwards Of 6 Gallons With Each Flush!
There are countless homes throughout Northern Utah that are still using toilets that are much too old. This ends up wasting several gallons of water with each and every flush, which undoubtedly adds up in water expenses over the course of a month.
New-age toilets are required to only utilize around 1.6 gallons with each flush, whereas older toilets from the 80s and 90s will many times use upwards of 6 gallons with each flush. Toilet repairs and replacements can end up helping homeowners save around 13,000 gallons of water each year!
When you’re dealing with a leaky toilet, you can also be wasting tons of water. This is why any leaking toilets should be examined by plumbing specialists as quickly as possible, because we’ll be able to get the job done and ultimately reduce your monthly water bills for good. The odds are that this type of issue is caused by a worn-out, old flapper. Toilet flappers will often experience mineral deposit buildup over long periods of time, and this can cause them to break down.
Leaky Sinks Waste Around 3,000 Gallons Of Water Each Year
Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night due to a dripping sound coming from your bathroom sink? No one likes this type of sound, because it’s very repetitive and annoying!
