Reasons to Trust a Superhero Plumber to Protect Your Family from Unclean Water
You trust that your water is treated here in Mesa, AZ and when you turn on the pipes, you’re pouring a clean, cool glass of water, right? Most of the time that is the case. But if you’ve got compromised plumbing, your water could actually be dangerous for your family.
What’s more is that there is a water crisis and planet earth needs our support to survive water scarcity. That’s where your trusted plumber steps in to play a superhero role and save the day on both these counts.
Do you practice water conservation at home? It’s easy to do. You just be mindful of how you use water. Turn off the tap when washing your teeth. Have a shower and not a bath.
Don’t water your lawn unless it needs it. Mulch your garden so that it retains moisture. Don’t use a hose to clean gutters or wash your driveway.
As for how your plumber can help, don’t leave plumbing leaks unattended. Get them fixed right away, as even a small leak can waste a lot of water. Plan to install eco-friendly plumbing fixtures which can significantly reduce your household water use.
A dual flush toilet gives you total control over how much water you really need to flush the toilet. A low flow shower-head uses a fraction of what you usually do with a traditional shower to get the same result.
What you Need to Know About Your Plumbing and Unclean Water
Even if your water is purified at the source, it can become unclean as it travels to your faucets through your pipes. If your pipes are constructed with lead, there is a chance that the lead can leach into your water. If that’s the case, replace with PVC piping.
The tiny piece inside your faucets can contaminate your water if they are old or if you haven’t cleaned them in a long time. The aerator catches minerals, which can build up residue that contaminates water as it flows through the tap.
Replace every few years. To maintain, pop the aerator out every month and soak in hot water and vinegar to loosen mineral residue. You can wipe gently clean with a cloth or toothbrush.
