Quick tip for Friday-Water saving tip-check your water bill

How closely to you check your water bill?

Reading the comparison information regarding USAGE may be the surest way to look for bigger problems.

Are you taking shorter showers and still paying more?  We get accustomed to the prices of everything increasing, do you forgot to look how much water you are actually using and not just how much you are paying?

Increases in consumption can indicate a need to change habits, update appliances or serve as a warning for leaks in the household.

Put into practice the water saving tips we hear all the time (if you are not already doing so):

  • Take shorter showers
  • Don’t run the water while brushing your teeth
  • Run only full loads of dishwasher or washing machine
  • Reduce watering days for lawns etc to 1 or 2 days a week

If you don’t see enough change in consumption for the next billing cycle it may be a good idea to check  for leaks or consider updating water using appliances such as dishwashers, toilets, washing machines, etc.

I love it when my customers introduce me to new products!

I just installed a HydroRight Dual Flush converter today and must say how impressed I was! My customer bought it and asked me to install and although I had never seen this product before I plan to buy 2 tomorrow for both of the bathrooms in my own house.

It was SO easy to install. The most time I spent was removing the old flush handle that was very calcified onto the tank! The whole process probably took 15 to 20 minutes because I very carefully read the instructions. Twice, actually, because it seemed too simple.

Once it is installed you can easily see the water savings by using the Quick Flush; the tank only drops about a 1/4 but the bowl completely empties (they even have you test it with a square of paper). Very efficient. Seems to me like every home should have these!

What a great reward for working on a Saturday to discover a new product that I am really excited about! My customers will be getting this recommended to them by me now, that is for sure.
