The Benefits of Low Flow Toilets
We mentioned low flow toilets briefly above, stating that this is a great way to cut back on your water bills. To give you greater detail, the traditional toilet consumes as much as 7 gallons of water per flush. This means that each year on average, the toilets in most Des Moines, IA homes use over 40,000 gallons of water per year!
Low flow toilets, on the other hand, only use about 1.6 gallons of water per flush, and there are even some models that use as little as 1.2 gallons. This means a substantial decrease in your water bills—anywhere from 55% to 77%—which equates to lower water bills as well.
When You May Need a Bathtub or Faucet Replacement
Let’s face it, no plumbing fixture is going to last forever. Whether old piping is the cause, or it is mineral buildup or limescale that has eaten away at your bathtub drain or sink faucet, you may find yourself facing the fact that you need a replacement.
