How Water Efficiency Helps the Environment

Earth Day is April 22. This is a great opportunity to remember how the amount of water we use can directly affect the environment. Here at Carter Quality Plumbing, our plumbers work with water every day in Lancaster, Rock Hill, and surrounding areas of the Carolinas. We’re very aware that water is one of our greatest natural resources. Here’s some information you can use to improve your personal water efficiency on Earth Day and every day.

According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, using water more efficiently doesn’t just save water. It also benefits the entire planet and our environment. How? Water efficiency lowers greenhouse emissions. Those emissions lead to climate change. Moreover, using less hot water uses less energy, which creates fewer emissions.

We usually take water and our planet for granted, but it’s never too late to be proactive. First, you should always work with licensed, professional plumbers in the Rock Hill and Lancaster, SC area. They’ll help you save water by finding leaking pipes. They can also repair or replace faucets that are leaking or dripping.

Did you know that a tap that drips 45 times a minute wastes about 264 gallons of water a month? That’s a lot of wasted water and wasted money on your utility bill. Don’t put off getting those leaky faucets fixed! Call Carter Quality Plumbing. We’re local Lancaster, SC plumbers you can trust.
