5 Ways a Home Repipe can Save Your Monthly Water Bill
Your monthly water bill can get quite high – especially when you live in California and you’re doing everything you can to beat the heat or to save your plants during yet another drought. You might try to conserve water by doing things like setting up rain barrels or even reusing shower water on plants. However, despite your conservation efforts, you just can’t seem to make much of a dent in your water bill.
It may be time for a repipe. A whole-house repiping can tear out those old or inefficient water pipes and replace them with new ones that are better suited to your home. Here are just five ways that a home repipe in California can help you save on your monthly water bill:
Old pipes can get rusty and brittle over time. Eventually, you can experience even pinpoint leaks that will regularly drain small bits of water. With time, even drops of water leaking out at a steady rate can add up to a lot of water loss, which can add up to a lot of money.
If left untended, those small leaks can lead to larger leaks, which can inundate your property, costing you a lot in repairs, as well as sending up your water bill. Replacing your pipes will ensure that you have strong, healthy plumbing that will not leak and will not burst. You’ll save on your water bill since all the water will say in the pipes and only go where you need it.
Regulate Water Pressure
Small leaks, build up, and other problems in aging or damaged pipes can wreak havoc on your water pressure. You might have too high water pressure, or it might be too low. Over time, that can cause more damage to your pipes, and it can cause your home to use more water than is necessary. (Case in point: Have you ever tried taking a shower with low water pressure? You’ll be in there forever!)
Repiping ensures that you have healthy, functioning pipes that deliver the right water pressure every time.
One of the reasons you might be experiencing problems with water pressure is that you have a buildup of sediment in your pipes. Hard water can leave behind iron, lime, and more, which can build up in your pipes and block the flow of the water. You’ll struggle with getting the pressure you need, which can cause you to use more water than you need.
Unfortunately, you can’t run a drain cleaner through your plumbing and get rid of sediment buildup. The only thing you can do is call a repiping plumber.
Reduce Flow to Your Appliances
You can save on your water bill by installing things like a low-flow toilet or low-flow sink faucets. But your plumbing can also add components to your plumbing that can reduce the flow to your appliances, helping you to save on your monthly water bill.
Talk to your repiping plumber about what you can do when you are repiping your house to reduce flow and lower your water bill. You may also need to consider replacing some older appliances that will continue to drain away unnecessary extra water.
It’s not always your pipes that are causing you to lose water. Sometimes, you have faulty components like valves and connectors. You don’t need to repipe your whole house to replace those components, but if you have already identified a need to repipe, know that the process will replace all those faulty components also, which will further bring down your water bill.
Repiping your home will give you a whole new plumbing system, ensuring that you have quality water free of foul odors and strange tints, and also ensuring that your home is as efficient as it can be. Your water bills should lower instantly. If you make lifestyle changes, as well, you should see your bill lower even more.
