The Environmental Protection Agency says that 10 percent of homes in the U.S. have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can detect and repair any leaks in your home.
It might be hard to imagine when Tampa Bay is subjected to monsoon-like rainstorms almost daily during this time of the year, but water conservation is an important goal set by area governments. For example, Pasco County, like most area counties and many municipalities, offers rebates and other rewards for residents who save water.
The Environmental Protection Agency and Tampa Bay Water, the non-profit agency that supplies water to Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Pinellas County, New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa, point out that leaks can wreak havoc on conservation.
“Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day,” according to the EPA’s Water Sense. “The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.”
It adds, “Common types of leaks found in the home include worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. All are easily correctable. Fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners about 10 percent on their water bills. Keep your home leak-free by repairing dripping faucets, toilet flappers, and showerheads. In most cases, fixture replacement parts don’t require a major investment.”
And Tampa Bay Water estimates that, “Leaking toilets waste up to 200 gallons a day, and most leaks can be fixed by replacing the toilet flapper.”
Replacing worn flappers is something most homeowners can do themselves. But tracking down leaks and repairing them can be a big job that requires a plumbing expert like the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
