Conservation Tips from Wilmington Plumbers | Roto-Rooter Blog

Water conservation is very important to the Wilmington plumbers at Roto-Rooter who have implemented the ROTOGreen program to help customers trim their water usage. Below are some residential plumbing conservation tips to follow:

• Toilets are responsible for more than 40% of your total water usage. Installing a new toilet flapper and fill valve will stop most leaks. But If you want to make your old toilet as efficient as a new EPA WaterSense toilet, call us to install green plumbing parts such as a dual-flush converter that will drastically curtail your water usage without your having to sacrifice toilet performance.

• A dripping faucet can waste as much as 150 gallons of water per day, or 4,500 gallons per month. Repair the faucet and you’ll notice the savings on your water bill. Then buy a water-saving aerator and cut the flow of bathroom faucets down to a half-gallon per minute. Most faucets blast out over 2.5 GPM. That’s far more water than anyone needs for shaving, washing hands or brushing teeth.

• If you replace an old shower head with a next-generation low-flow head, it can save up to 4 gallons of water per minute without sacrificing full spray action at low or high water pressures. The Wilmington plumbers at Roto-Rooter have made the Niagara 1.5 GPM shower head their standard replacement shower head because it provides a premium look and feel and outstanding water savings.
