Why is Water Conservation Important?

Our licensed plumbers care about water conservation which saves water and saves you money. Serving Northern NJ.

As we enter into the warmer months of the year, water conservation grows in importance. Many of us take for granted the fact that we have flushing toilets and hot showers in our homes. However, there are still many places in the world where this is not available. The lack of basic sanitary and plumbing systems have a huge impact on a community’s health and environment.

Did you know…?

  • 2.1 billion (or 3 in 10 people) lack access to safe, readily available water
  • 4.5 billion (or 6 in 10 people) do not have toilets in their home
  • More than 1 billion people gained access to piped supplies between 2000 and 2015
  • 361,000 children under the age of 5 die each year due to water born diarrhea from water contamination

The importance of using water efficiently and responsibly can not be overstated. Water is a requirement of all life, and all life on the planet depends on it. Unfortunately, water is a limited resource. Less than 1% of the water on Earth is available for use by people. It is crucial to maintain this supply for the survival of humanity.

As water conservation becomes more important, we need to learn more about how to achieve and maintain plumbing efficiency. Properly installed and maintained sewer systems are a vital part to a home’s success in conserving water. In addition to reducing the cost of your utility bill, water conservation also helps to prevent pollution in nearby lakes, rivers and local watersheds.

Some simple ways to conserve water…

  • Check all pipes, faucets and toilets for leaks
  • Use small amounts of biodegradable soaps and detergents
  • Turn off the water while you are brushing your teeth
  • Reduce your shower time and switch to a low-flow showerhead
  • Ensure the setting on your water heater is not above 120 degrees fahrenheit
  • In order to to prevent water from evaporating so quickly due to the high temperatures, invest in a high quality pool cover

Conserving water should be part of everyday family practice. Should you have any questions or need help upgrading to more energy efficient fixtures, please contact Zeek Plumbing at 866-635-0200.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

Everyone at Zeek Plumbing was so kind and helpful. My heated driveway had a broken pipe but Steve, Rich, and the whole team went above and beyond to repair this as quickly as possible. I highly recommend their business for any plumbing issues you may have.

I’m a new homeowner and didn’t know what to expect when I had Zeek over to help me with a problem I had with a new washing machine connection when I moved in. Not only did they help with the connection, they spent time to explain my heating system to me. Now, two months later they have been to my home for two other problems that came about. While I wasn’t excited about having to spend money, they kept my budget in mind and were more than fair. I have nothing to but good things to say about their work, the people in their office and the people that have visited my home. I recommend them highly.

Steve and his team are the best of the best. He was so responsive and so caring!!!! Within a very short amount of time he sent us 2 of his team members (Rich and Oliver) who were outstanding. Extremely competent, knowledgeable, smart, fast, polite, and caring. We recently moved into the area and are so blessed to have found them. Highly recommend them!!!

We called Zeek Plumbing when our office toliet backed up. They came right out and took care of the problem in a very professional manner. They did have to make a second trip, but did so promptly and got the problem solved. We would definitely recommend Zeek Plumbing.

I had a sewer line leaking in the basement where flooring and part of a wall had to be removed. They also had to remove a toilet and replace that connection to the sewer line. .The pipes were repaired, concrete repaired and toilet reinstalled. This was a big job. They knew exactly what they were doing and the repair is all done. They were easy to schedule with, courteous and professional. Highly recommend!!

We woke up this morning to water pouring out of our toilet, all of over the floor, down the to the basement, we were PANICKED! I called Zeek Plumbing and Steve was able to identify the problem over the phone and dispatch someone to come immediately to help us fix the issue. Within an hour everything was fixed and in working order. We're so grateful for the responsiveness and professionalism of his team.
