Water Leak Detection And Repair 101

Griffin Plumbing of Santa Maria - Water Leak Detection And Repair

How Water Leak Detection And Repair Can Save Money And The Planet!

Here’s an important question to consider from Griffin Plumbing – your Santa Maria, Orcutt, and Central Coast plumbers…

“Do you know how much water your family is using each month?”

Even more important is this question…

“Do you know how much water your family is wasting each month, due to leaks around the house?”

If you are looking for ways to save money and help the environment, water leak detection and repair is the perfect first step.

Do You Have a Swimming Pool?

There is nothing wrong with owning a swimming pool, and on hot Santa Maria summer days it can surely be a great way to cool off your family. But did you know that leaky pipes could be losing as much water as it takes to fill that pool? That’s a lot of water being wasted in your home each year, which could easily be corrected with preventative maintenance.

Catch Your Toilet

Do you remember the old joke: “Is your toilet running? You better go catch it!”

Well, the truth is that while you will not be wrangling your toilet as it runs its way down the back alley, you really do need to address whatever is causing the tank to continuously run. A running toilet can waste an average of 200 gallons of water per day! That’s a lot of water and a lot more change tacked on to your water bill.

Little Drips Make for Big Waste

Big leaks are not your only problem. Your friendly plumbers in Santa Maria and Orcutt urge you to address the little drip drops coming from your leaky kitchen faucet, too. While this dripping may seem like no big deal, the reality is that this can add up to more than 3,000 gallons of water a year sneaking out through your sink!

Be Water Conscious

Don’t just stop at detecting and repairing the leaks. If you want to improve your family’s water usage as a whole, we recommend you take a look at some great new products on the market, which are offering better water and energy efficiency than ever before. From water-saving toilets to weight-sensing washing machines, timer-activated hot water heaters, and many more handy gadgets, you can get your home on track to saving thousands of gallons of water each year, and plenty of money in utility fees.
