Expert Plumbers Overflow with Simple Tips to Conserve Water in Honor of Earth Day

HOUSTON - April 20, 2017 // PRNewswire // - It only takes one year for a typical U.S. home to waste up to 38,000 gallons of water*. If that alone doesn't make you feel flush, this means nine out of ten homes are currently wasting 70 gallons of water each day! Before you wash all hope down the drain, let us shower you with good news. It's not too late to get a handle on wasted water, and with Earth Day around the corner on April 22, now is the perfect time to plunge into water conservation.

Experts from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®, part of the Direct Energy family of brands with independently owned and operated locations throughout North America, are overflowing with information to help home owners save water. Here are a few simple water conservation tips:

  • Install low-flush toilets or a dual flush system
    The EPA estimates that a family of four that replaces its home's older toilets with WaterSense (meets EPA criteria) labeled models will, on average, save more than $90 per year in reduced water utility bills.
  • Ensure your home is equipped with low-flow showerheads
    The average family could save 2,900 gallons per year by installing WaterSense labeled showerheads.
  • Install a hot water recirculation system for instant hot water
    This helps save an average of 25,000 gallons of water per household per year from not having to wait for the running water to heat up! Because of the significant water savings, some counties are making the installation of hot water recirculation pumps mandatory for new construction projects. If you'd like to learn more about the features and benefits, ask your local Benjamin Franklin Plumber.
