Summer is nearly here and that means trips to the shore, hitting the golf course, or a vacation for the whole family. You always want to save money, but as a homeowner, you know that sometimes a plumbing service in South Jersey is needed which is not always cheap. Here are 4 simple tips you can try that will help you save money on your plumbing this summer.
Make Sure Your Drains Are Emptying
You use your sink, shower, or bathtub on a daily basis and are most likely not to notice if there is a change in how your drains empty. However, if you do begin to notice that things are different than normal, it’s best to address the issue immediately so it doesn’t turn into a bigger problem down the road. There are a few things you can do at home to get drains unclogged, but if you don’t feel like getting into the nitty-gritty of it all, you can always call our licensed plumbers
to get things cleared out.
Check For Dripping Faucets
This is at the top of the list because it is one of the top culprits of what is wasting water in your home and costing you money. If you notice that a faucet in your home is leaking, you have two options. Try to fix it on your own, or call a company like us to handle the job. Even with all the tutorials on the internet, there are so many different faucets out there and ultimately, you can end up doing more harm than good by fixing things on your own.
Make Sure Your Toilets Are Not Leaking
The best way to check and see if your toilet is leaking and losing water is by performing the food color test. What you do is add food color into the tank and if it appears in the toilet bowl in 30 minutes, you know that you are losing water.
Check For Consistent Hot Water
Do you step in the shower and notice a change in the temperature of the water? This could be because of an issue with your hot water heater. A trained plumber like the ones on our team at Hutchinson can come to your home and check to see if your water heater is performing at its best or if it needs to be replaced.
