Survey Question #2: Do You Hear Continually Running Water, or Have Leaky Faucets?

If you answered yes to this question, you should be thinking minor repairs, if not a full-scale remodel. Why? Household leaks account for nearly 1 trillion gallons of wasted water in the United States every year, and even a small household leak can waste more than 90 gallons of water in a single day. If that doesn’t get your attention, then maybe this will: fixing a leaky faucet can decrease your water by bill by as much as 10% annually. Leaks can be caused by a number of issues, including worn toilet flappers, worn faucet valves, and blown washers, to name a few. Not only will a remodel eliminate those costly leaks, but technology has come a long way since those old fixtures and appliances were installed in your home decades ago. Here’s a few energy saving products that you’ll want to consider if your leaky faucets have you leaning towards a larger bathroom makeover:

  • Low Flush Toilets
  • Dual Flush Toilets
  • Low Flow Shower Heads
  • Water Saving Faucets
  • Shower Thermostats
  • Steam Showers
