SEATTLE, April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- South West Plumbing, Seattle's leading provider of plumbing services, is encouraging local residents to focus on water conservation this month in honor of Earth Day, April 22.

"Water conservation isn't just good for the Earth, it's a great way to help Seattle homeowners save their hard-earned cash," said Darrell Paul, general manager of South West Plumbing. "Taking simple steps to reduce water waste pays off in reduced utility bills while helping conserve our natural resources."

Paul asks homeowners to be aware that water leaks throughout a home could easily increase water consumption. It is important for homeowners to regularly check their toilet and faucets for leaks to minimize potential water damage and increased utility bills.

"There may be times where we do not notice that our toilet is continuously running or see a small wet spot on the floor next to the sink," said Paul. "These are all signs of a possible water leak, which means there is a chance water is being wasted somewhere throughout the house."

Being aware of sewer line functionality is a second way to ensure a home is conserving water. Water can be wasted every time it's released from a home if the sewer line isn't working properly. Hiring a professional to ensure the line is watertight will prevent future problems from occurring while also saving water.

Another way to preserve water is installing high-efficiency plumbing fixtures. Products with the WaterSense label are recommended by the EPA. According to the agency, WaterSense faucets can reduce the amount of water used in a sink by at least 20%.

"High-efficiency plumbing fixtures not only can help you save water, but they can also help you save money on your utility bill," Paul said. "High-efficiency toilets can use as little as 1 gallon per flush as opposed to 3.5 gallons in a conventional toilet. Imagine how much water you could save by just changing out your plumbing fixtures."
