Saving Money and Water

Three water-wise tips to save water and your wallet.

a man saving money on your water bill

Tip #1 - Handling Small Drips

So you have a small drip. Not a problem right? Well, you might want to think twice about that.

A small drip every 3 seconds can add up to nearly 3 gallons per day or 86 gallons per month. That sure does add up on your water bill! So tip #1 is pretty straightforward: fix those drips. Often times these repairs can be done by a confident DIY'er. However if you would rather leave it to the pros, we are here to help.

Tip #2 - Check on your appliances

Efficiency Check

First, check your appliances. Thanks to advances in technology, home appliances have increased in water efficiency. If possible, consider replacing old appliances with newer models.

Here are some other ways to make sure you're getting the most efficient use of your appliances if replacing them is not an option:

  • Fill your sink or basin when washing and rinsing dishes.
  • Only run the dishwasher when it's full.
  • Run full loads of laundry.

Second, check yourself. Are you practicing smart water usage? Here are some suggestions to make sure you are water efficient:

  • Take short showers.
  • When cooking, peel and clean vegetables in a large bowl of water instead of under running water.
  • Turn off the water to brush your teeth.

Tip #3 - Revisit Your Outdoor Water Strategy

Being water-wise outdoors.

Consider asking your local nursery or landscape company for tips on how to maximize the use of natural vegetation. Often times shrubs and other ground covers require less water and provide a great look almost all year round.

Check-in on those sprinklers. Are they watering what they are supposed to? Your house and the sidewalk don't really need watering. Making sure your sprinklers are pointed in the right direction is an easy fix that will help get the most out of your water usage.

Bonus Tip - Install Water-Saving Fixtures

To further reduce your water consumption, consider installing water-saving fixtures in your home. Replace old showerheads with low-flow options that maintain water pressure while conserving gallons of water per minute. Likewise, install faucet aerators to reduce water flow without sacrificing functionality. These simple yet effective upgrades can make a significant difference in your water bill savings.

Remember, implementing these three tips, along with the bonus tip of installing water-saving fixtures, will not only help you save money but also contribute to water conservation efforts. Start implementing these strategies today and make a positive impact on both your wallet and the environment.

He found the leak quickly and did a quality repair to a poorly joined pipe by the builder. I am very pleased with the work provided. He went the extra mile and also replaced the pine straw that was removed for the repair. Work was NOT cheap but I got what I needed - immediate response and repair. I recommend if you are in a pinch.

Steven was very knowledgeable and educated us on septic tanks. We luckily had gravel drainage so he recommended cleaning out our septic tank completely and putting biodegratible in the drainage field.

We luckily had gravel drainage so he recommended cleaning out our septic tank completely and putting biodegratible in the drainage field. He was here from 4:00-6:30 and explained everything to my husband. In the past when we had our septic tank pumped they did it incorrectly. I feel confident in Steven’s work and we have a 12 month guarantee. It was costly but for what he did worth every penny. Thank you Steven for your expertise job.
Steven was so awesome and very knowledgeable of the system that he taught me a lot. He did a good job alone and I would recommend and already did to someone else. I like the fact he drove a long way and there was no charge for him to come out! I will use him again in another 4-5 years if he... Steven was so awesome and very knowledgeable of the system that he taught me a lot. He did a good job alone and I would recommend and already did to someone else.

David O. Showed up on time and prepared. Very professional at his craft. Explained everything in detail, and got the job done! I will definitely be giving Rooter Plus my business going forward! Thank you David O.!!!
Ken H was excellent! He was professional and efficient in diagnosing my problem with my water heater. He offered various options for replacement and went out of his way to get the job done the same day. I would highly recommend him and Rooter Plus!

I called the office for water leakage on Sunday morning and they schedule me with Technician arrival in 30 mins. Jason reached on time, investigate the problem and able to find the source of leak in few minutes, which was definitely tricky and I believe only an expert eye like Jason can capture it. He walked me over the issue, fixed it and saved my Sunday morning. RooterPLUS is on my speed dial now for any plumbing issues.
It is usually unlikely that you see someone young working hard and have a good attitude along with it. Robert definitely displayed that while he was at work today and I had the pleasure to meet him and tell you about it. Keep up the good work Robert it will pay off!
