7 Easy Plumbing Maintenance Tips

Posted on: November 8, 2016

Plumbing maintenance can save you from one of the pains of being a modern homeowner—water bills. Though water bills are normal part of everyday life, some homeowners will allow costs to grow completely out of their control. This is primarily due to allowing plumbing fixtures go unchecked, meaning any existing issues will only worsen. Any leaks in your plumbing system that go unattended can wind up presenting themselves in the form of high cost bills. and can waste several gallons of water. Adding to the burden is the fact that you need water in order to function in your home on a daily basis. You need running water for showers, laundry, cooking, washing dishes, and so much more. When you also add in the number of occupants in your home, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you take a look at the cost of your next water bill. And as you may know, water doesn’t come cheap. You just may find yourself with an empty wallet in the span of just a few short months. Though it may seem like you just prepared yourself for a season of high spending, you can take action in changing your fortunes for the better. Saving money on water bills is possible, and sometimes all it takes is a few quick steps to make it happen.

How Can Plumbing Maintenance Save You Money On Water Bills?

The cost of water bills can sneak up on you, but there is a way to avoid it. The next time you’re looking to cut costs on bills, please follow these 7 helpful plumbing maintenance tips:

  1. Practice More Efficient Dishwashing: Some may think washing dishes by hand will be the more efficient option, but the truth is that it actually wastes more water than using the dishwasher. Investing in an energy-efficient dishwasher uses 30% less water than if you washed by hand, and ultimately winds up being 80% more efficient overall. Though running out and buying a dishwasher may have a high upfront cost, you will experience more long-term savings.
  2. Improve Water Meters: Water meters today have made great strides in improving their performance. New water meters have been developed that can detect leaks and give you detailed information on your water usage, which let you know if you need to change your daily habits. Since modern water meters do a great job in detecting leaks, you will be able to stop problems before they worsen.
  3. Consider Greywater Reuse Options: Did you know your water supply can be recycled? Examples of recycled water include shower, faucet and even laundry water that can be used for toilet flushing. A sanitary pipe keeping the water separated from city potable water pipes and running it to your toilets will help make this possible. In fact, this method can save you an impressive 7,000 gallons of water in a year.
  4. Consider Storm Water Reuse: The water from that last rain storm may prove a reusable water option as well. This process entails collecting storm water via rooftop drums that can collect and distribute water for landscaping irrigation. If you get a lot of rainfall in your area, this will certainly prove to be beneficial for your needs.
  5. Save Water in the Bathroom: Your bathroom probably sees the most water usage out of any room in your household. Toilets, sinks, and showers can amount to 41 gallons used per day, per person. You can save water by switching to more efficient fixtures, like low-flow toilets and shower heads. You can also reduce shower time down to 5 minutes to save more gallons of water.
  6. Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Washing Machines: Upgrading your washing machine can save you 50% more on energy bills. New models of washing machines last longer, and wash more effectively as well. You can also save water by wearing clothes more than once, as washing clothes that aren’t even dirty can be a huge waste of water.
  7. Save Water in Your Yard: Overall, your outdoor watering habits could be costing you the most. Evaluating the water used for maintaining your lawn and landscaping could result in big savings. It’s estimated that up to 55% of your water is used outdoors, primarily from watering the grass. You can work with a landscape designer in creating a more water-friendly outdoor space, which may include you making a change to low-maintenance landscaping.

Starting with my initial call and interaction with the Office Manager Andy, the service was outstanding. The onsite team beginning with Matt, the leak detection person and ending with the plumbers (Jonathan and James), the service was excellent. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.

Great Service and Awesome Price!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

My serviceman was Don. He was Awesome! I was extremely pleased with the service. Before starting he thoroughly checked the job out to see what was entailed. He helped me pick out the items I would need and took time to answer my questions and concerns.It was evident that he wanted to do a good job and the customer was first which was me. I was educated on the procedures. He told me what he needed to do, how it was going to be, and how long it would take. And he gave me a good price. Don is experienced and highly efficient. He is well-organized and neat. His work is eye-catching and eye-pleasing. There were no water drippings or stains left on my white tile floor. When finished, he left his work area neat and clean. He hauled old items away. He did an AWESOME job! I recommend Dial One Johnson Plumbing which I will be using again and again. And I will be personally asking for Don. When the job, was finished he thanked me for allowing him to serve me.Good customer service means a lot.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Exceptional customer service from Debra taking the initial call to James fixing the plumbing issue. My telephone call to Dial One was taken quickly and efficiently addressed; no long wait on line for a person to answer. My information on the problem was promptly taken and steps taken to help me. James arrived promptly and was working to fix the plumbing issue within minutes of arriving at our home. James definitely knew what he was doing, very knowledgeable and very personable. If Debra and James are the typical caliber of Dial One employees, Dial One is a solid service provide and be my “go to” company. My thanks to Debra and James, they made resolution to this problem a quick, easy fix for us.

Best Plummer Ever!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I called there office in a panic! There was water in the closet by my hall bath. I had already had three Plummer’s out and the all said the leak was fixed. The whole shower had been taken out and the cold water rerouted because of THE LEAK. Well there went a thousand dollars. But we still had the leak! We had to pay to have the tub and tile replaced another seventeen hundred dollars we still Have THE LEAK! They have to tear out some of the brand new tile and replace the faucet . And had to pay to have that repaired two hundred fifty dollars! Go into the bedroom in the closet this morning and THE LEAK is back!! All over the carpet now we are back to square one. I call your office and the lady that answered the phone was very kind and I was about to loose it. I felt like I had been betrayed by three different Plummer’s and did not know who to trust. She assured me that your technicians were the best and would find the problem. Then the man of the day showed up to my door same day mind you. And he did not know he was going to be the man of the day at least in my world. Curley walked me through each and every step of what he was doing and showed me how he eliminated each possibility to get to the root of THE LEAK! Finally a resolution was in sight! He found it with his trusty camera and plus all the water everywhere behind the wall. He showed it to me and I was so happy to see it could be fixed. I was thinking we must have a leak in the slap which would mean the tub and tile work would all have to be redone and I was so relieved Curley and his apprentice where very professional, kind, and just the best! They cleaned up everything like nothing had happened😁 My husband arrived right as they were getting ready to leave and I him if he could show him what they had done and he did. My husband was was very impressed with him as well and appreciated him taking the time to show him what the problem was. I can not say enough good things about Curley. I will recommend your company every one I know. Thank you for making my day by finding THE LEAK!
