How the Plumbing in Saskatoon Homes Can Help the Country Save Water
One of the reasons why households use so much water is that there’s too much of it flowing through their pipes. In fact, a water pressure of about 35 PSI (pounds per square inch) is adequate for most homes, but many use 70 PSI or greater. Have expert Saskatoon plumbers inspect your water pressure and ask if you need to install a pressure-reducing valve to drop the flow rate to more sensible levels. Low-Volume Toilets Toilets are among the most used plumbing fixtures in the home, and they also happen to be some of the most water-hungry. If you’re using a toilet, each flush sends about three gallons of water down the drain. To save water—and to lower your utility bills, as well—replace your current toilet with one that uses only 1.6 gallons or less per flush.
