How to Save Money This Summer

This summer, homeowners across San Antonio are trying to find ways to save money and use water conservation methods without sacrificing comfort. Fortunately, there are many ways to reduce your water bills without resorting to once-a-week showers or washing your laundry by hand. Learn from our experts at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing how you can save money on your water bills this summer.

Water Saving Fixtures

A plumbing upgrade to water saving fixtures could save you a bundle of money without sacrificing your comfort. Consider a plumbing installation of:

  • Dual-flush toilets
  • Low flow showerheads
  • Faucet aerators
  • Timed home irrigation systems

Maintenance and Repairs

Even a single leaky faucet can lead to hundreds of gallons of wasted water every month. Prompt plumbing repairs of leaky fixtures or rusted pipes helps to conserve water and lower utility bills.

Leak detection is another essential plumbing service. Whether it is a slow fixture leak or a catastrophic slab leak, professional leak detection services could lower your water costs by a significant amount of money.

Changing Habits

Making a few changes to your daily habits could lower your water usage and costs. Some easy changes to make include:

  1. Shutting off the water while sudsing up your hair in the shower.
  2. Changing the water level setting on the washing machine to the appropriate load size.
  3. Washing only full loads in the dishwasher.
  4. Watering lawns and flower beds in the evening and avoiding letting water run off and into paved areas.

Be Water Conscious This Season
