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

I called Zeek Plumbing on a recommendation from my old plumber, who had moved away, after my hot water heater died. They were able to come out and get me set up with a new one in relatively short order. I'm definitely saving their number for any future plumbing issues I may have.

Zeek is the best! Steve in the office is top notch and a pleasure to deal with. Tim showed up on time and completed the repair with no issues. Highly recommend Zeek Plumbing.

They came to my house for a routine service call for a few various things that needed to be looked at. I'm very satisfied with the process. They walked me through potential issues they saw, walked me through what they'd do, and gave me advice on how to handle some of the smaller things in the future. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Yet another great experience with Zeek Plumbing. We've used Zeek to install a new hot water heater and most recently they came out to fix a drainage and diverter issue with our bathtub. They also repaired a sink installation and tightened up a loose toilet. Zeek Plumbing has been our go to plumber for over 5 years.

I called on a Sunday and Steve got right back to me. He sent out a tech on the following Tuesday to reseat two toilets. I was able to wait no emergency and I saved money not having the tech do the job on the weekend. The job was done neatly and everything was immaculate when I got home. These guys are professional and trustworthy!! ZEEK PLUMBING is the way to go!!

Timmy and RJ were excellent. The staff ant Zeek plumbing is fast, courteous, and provide their services at a tremendous value. I would highly recommend them for your plumbing needs.

Zeek did the gas line installation for our new natural gas grill. Everything was done professionally and every team member we engaged with were very friendly. Even when there was a slight mishap during inspection, Zeek responded promptly and handled everything great. We now have a very good looking gas line hookup on the deck and the first steaks and burgers are already done!

We use then commercially and industrially. They've never let us down. Far better and more caring plumbers than most out there. They've done residential repairs for friends of mine on jobs that others haven't been able to correct. In one shot, they diagnosed and corrected the problems without a callback. Like tattoos, good work ain't cheap and cheap work ain't good. Spend the money on them and get it done right, the first time

Just wanted to give a shout out to Zeek Plumbing! Our hot water heater went Monday afternoon and they were at our house by 8am Tuesday to fix it. Ryan was super easy and nice to work with and made sure that all of my questions were answered and I understood the next steps.The technicians that came to install the water heater were great! They were neat, friendly, quick and efficient. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!

We had a leak in our baseboard heat. Called Zeek at 8 am with a non-emergency and the team was at our house by 1 pm. Rich and Oliver were great, knowledgeable, and worked quickly and clean. I knew enough to DIY the fix, but didn't want to risk it and I will say it isn't often that a professional puts in as much care as the homeowner, but they very much did - even taking the time to answer my questions around the specific tools they used. I will absolutely make Zeek my first call for the next plumbing fix.

Zeek Plumbing is the best! I called and they said someone would arrive within the hour and someone actually arrived within the hour. We had a dripping pipe in the basement and the issue was resolved quickly and efficiently. I very highly recommend Zeek Plumbing!!
