As a homeowner, you are well aware of just how important your plumbing is, and how tough it is to get by when something goes wrong. But there are many things that go on beneath the surface and out of sight that you might not be aware of. Here are a couple of secrets you don’t know about your home’s plumbing.

 

Your bills are 30% higher than they should be

 

Most people pay a lot more on their bills each month than they should. You can cut up to one third of the price of your home’s plumbing costs just by installing water-efficient fixtures and appliances. Not only will these help the planet, they will help your wallet. The real secret that most don’t take advantage of is government tax credits. It’s always a good idea to do some research and find out which ones work best for you.

 

Leaks and drips are more common than you think

 

A drip or leak here and there is basically unavoidable. The only thing you can do is stay on top of them and make sure they are fixed up as soon as they are detected. Most homeowners don’t realize just how expensive they are. As many as 10% of homes have leaks that waste up to 90 gallons per day! Leaks, whether in the toilet, pipes, or faucets could end up costing hundreds of dollars per year.
