Fix Leaks as Soon as You Notice Them

If you have a leak, even if it is minor, it’s costing you on your water bill. Not only that, it’s likely to become a big leak later and cost you significantly more money in repairs and water damage. Make sure to check hidden areas, like under your sinks and below your hot water tank, for leaks regularly. Consider installing FLO by Moen and never miss a leak again.

Upgrade to Efficient Faucets

Newer, efficient faucets will work great while saving water, which translates to saving you money too. If your faucet is prone to leaks or you’ve just had it for a long time, you’ll find that upgrading to a new model will make a difference in your water consumption.

Upgrade Your Water Heater

As your water heater gets older, it gets less efficient and starters costing you more money. If your water heater is around 10 years old or more, it is time to upgrade to a new model. You’ll see the numbers on your monthly bill go down as soon as you do.

Use Drain Strainers

Keeping drain strainers in your kitchen sink and showers will prevent hair, food bits, and other debris from washing down the drain, which means you won’t have to call in the professionals to snake your drains as often.

Think Before You Flush

Don’t flush anything down the toilet other than toilet paper and waste. That’s right, not even those “flushable” wipes. Many products that call themselves “flushable” are actually not going to break down fully and will clog up your pipes. Being mindful of what you flush down the toilet will preserve your plumbing system and save you a lot of money on repairs.
