5 Plumbing Upgrades to Try



5 Plumbing Upgrades to Try


If you haven't upgraded your home's plumbing system, you could be wasting money. There are many things that you can try to help you save money. 

Buy a New Water Heater

Traditional water heaters let hot water sit unused until it cools down. This means that you have to run the water until it gets hot, this results in wasting water. Replace your water heater with a tankless water heater from Navien. 

Switch to Low Flow

Low-flow fixtures provide great savings. Your shower heads and faucets can also be put on low-flow setting. This option is also more eco-friendly and lowers your carbon footprint.

Take Care of Your Pipes

Another way to save money and upgrade your plumbing lies in the pipes of your home. Often times, pipes aren't insulated properly and this causes pipes to freeze in the winter. And because pipes aren't properly insulated they cause the water heater to work, this results in excess water waste. It is important to contact a professional to check your pipes.

Recycle Your Water

The best thing you can do is purchase a water recycling system. Basically, this system takes water from your showers, faucets, and other fixtures (excluding the toilet) and either pumps them into the garden and landscaping or fills an exterior reservoir. Because the water doesn’t come from the toilet, you don’t have to worry about contamination. This type of dual usage is the ultimate time and money saver.

Conserve Water

It is important that everyone in the household is aware of their water consumption. Sit down with your family and discuss ways to conserve water and minimize overuse of the water.
