Saving on Water | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

You might have a leak if you think you’ve been using too much water. Call the leak detection pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

The news from the Inverness City Council is unlikely to get a smile from many homeowners. The council is poised to increase the cost of water.

According to a report in the Citrus Chronicle, “The council also gave City Manager Frank DiGiovanni the green light to return with an ordinance to raise utility rates annually an average of 2.5 percent for the next five years beginning in October. … If the council approves the 2.5 percent increase, an average residential family would see an increase of $1.53 per month. Currently, the average residential bill for both water and wastewater service is $61.53 per month.”

That’s not a lot of money but all increases add up, especially when money is tight. One way to handle the cost increase is to become more aware of ways to save water.

Insurer Geico has several suggestions to conserve water. Among them, don’t take so long in the shower, cut off the water while you brush your teeth or shave, install a rain barrel, and check for leaks.

Even the smallest leak in a pipe can waste a lot of water,” Geico says. “To see if there’s a problem with yours, read your water meter when no water is being used. Then check it again after a few hours to see if the gauge has moved. Fixing the leak could be as simple as replacing a faucet; however, if there’s a more serious problem, like an unseen leak, the repair could be more complicated.”

If it appears you have a leak, it could be time to call a leak detection expert for help in pinning down the exact location. The leak detection pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help with that. Once they find the plumbing leak, Billy’s technicians can easily repair it.
