Eco-Friendly Plumbing Advice by Plumber Melbourne

Posted by on April 23, 2019
Saving on water (and energy) is important for the environment. Often, just updating some of your equipment around the home or fixing a problem can result in saving a lot of water and energy – which is good for the environment and you! While there is a heap of water on earth, most of it is not fit for human consumption. Plumber Melbourne can do a review on your plumbing system and advise you of improvements that can be made.

Plumber Melbourne offers you tips on great ways to make your home more environmentally friendly

  •     Plumber Melbourne can Install a low-flow toilet that can result in 30% less litres of water used per flush. Considering that toilets represent about 30% of your household water usage (second only to the shower), this is significant water conservation. Ask a plumber Melbourne to quote on installing a low-flow toilet.
  •     Plumber Melbourne can Install a low-flow showerhead that can result in 50% less litres of water used per shower. On average, a five-minute shower with a regular showerhead will use 100 litres of water. A five-minute shower with a low-flow showerhead will only use 35 litres of water. A good quality low-flow showerhead will feel the exact same as a regular one. Save water and save money at the same time by installing a low-flow showerhead. Get a Quote from your local plumber Melbourne to convert your showerheads.
  •     A semi filled bath saves more water than a short shower. A comfortable bath usually takes approximately 150 litres of water. A shower uses about 11-20 litres of water per minute. Doing the math, that means that if you’re going to take a shower for about 10 minutes or more, it’s more economical and you’ll save more water if you take a semi filled bath.
  •     A leaking tap Melbourne can waste up to 75 litres of water per day.  Keep an eye out for leaks and have them fixed as quickly as possible by a plumber Melbourne. Loosing 75 litres of water a day is equivalent to a half-filled bath from above!
  •     A running toilet can waste up to 750 litres of water per day! That’s a lot of water being used for nothing. Plumber Melbourne can service and repair any problems with your toilet at a very low cost during normal business hours.
  •     Consider purchasing a tankless water heater. A tankless water heater in some cases can save you up to 40% on energy for hot water. Consult with a Plumber Melbourne to discuss if this could be a viable option for your home.
  •     Keep an eye out for hidden plumbing leaks. Plumbing outside the home often go undetected unless you look for them. Approximately, up to 30% of water entering supply-line systems can be lost to leaking pipes. Make sure you call your local plumber Melbourne if you notice this occurring.
  •     Fruits and vegetables do not use running water. Fill a small bowl with water when rinsing the fruit and vegetables.
  •     Turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth, and only use short bursts to rinse out your mouth.
  •     Clean your sidewalks and driveway with a broom and not a garden hose.
  •     The best method to check if you have leaks in your water system is to turn off all taps in your home. Then go to the water meter for your home and see if it is still running. If it’s still running, you have a water leak somewhere. Call a plumber Melbourne to detect and repair the leak as soon as possible.
