What Consumes the Most Water in My House? 


It can be absolutely gut wrenching to get a water consumption bill that is unusually high. You might start to panic as you try to figure out what the problem is. However, it may take the services of a professional plumber to help you identify the source of the problem. Here are some common items in your home that might be causing the problem.

The Toilet

Did you know that your toilet actually uses quite a bit of water each day? You can buy an energy efficient model that uses less water.

However, you still need to contact us to make sure you don’t have a plumbing issue that is causing your toilet to use more water than it should. If your toilet runs all of the time or you notice water pooling around the toilet on the floor, then contact us to find the real issue.

Taking a Shower

Just the act of showering can use a lot of water, especially if you take very long ones each day. Check your shower faucet to see if it is leaking when you turn it off. Even a slow leak can be very expensive over time. Also, check the ceiling below the shower to see if it is wet.

If you find a leak or a wet ceiling below the shower, then you might have a leaky pipe or a busted pipe that is hidden behind a wall. Contact us to find the leaky or busted pipe and to get it repaired quickly. Never wait to solve the problem because it will get worse and more expensive to fix over time.

The Washing Machine

If you have to run your washing machine frequently, then you are using a lot of water to do so. A newer, more energy efficient model can help with this problem. However, you can call us to see if you have a plumbing problem around the washing machine.
