Handwashing dishes? Let the dishwasher handle it.

Repair your fixtures!
Leaky faucets and pipes can lead to a lot of extra water usage. If you want to save more water, then you need to make sure that your plumbing system is working efficiently and effectively. If you’re not sure about whether or not it is running at optimal levels, then we can take a look for you!
Save water by insulating your hot water pipes.
Yes, this is still a summer water saving tip and here’s why: How much time do you spend waiting for your shower to get hot enough to step into? How long do you run the tap while waiting for hot water? It’s probably only a few seconds, but when you add that up over the course of the week, then it becomes several minutes. After that it becomes days and then weeks. When you insulate your hot water pipes, you will be able to get hotter water faster. Thus, you will be cutting down on the time it takes for it to heat up and you will waste a lot less water. Need help with the installation? That’s what we’re here for!
