5 New Year Resolutions for Your Plumbing
Time to pack away the Christmas decorations – 2020 is finally here! Many of us have new year resolutions to eat healthier or spend more time with family, but have you given thought to your plumbing? Your pipes could do with their own this year. Here are five New Year resolutions you can follow for your plumbing in 2020.
Make 2020 Green
Environmental issues have been on the forefront lately. Why not do your bit and turn your plumbing green? Swap your taps and faucets to more water-efficient ones. Change your outdoor sprinkler to a drip-irrigation system. You can even harvest rainwater to use for things like washing your car or watering your plants.
Get a Water Filter
Improve the quality of your water by installing a water filter in 2020. A water filter doesn’t just make your water taste great, but it can also remove any chemicals, like chlorine, from your showers and washing machines. Think of the health benefits – you may find that you start drinking more due to the fresh, crisp taste.
Use Less Water
We all want to help the environment and use less water. So make 2020 the year to do it. Even small changes make a difference – turn off the tap when you’re brushing your teeth, or use the ‘eco’ option on your dishwater. Not only will the planet thank you, but your wallet as well!
Invest in the Right Tools
Make 2020 the year to nip small plumbing issues in the bud. You may be able to unclog that drain yourself, but you must have the right tools to do it. Invest in a plunger, pliers and a wrench. If you have the means to fix little problems on your own, you can stop them from becoming big ones.
Make Friends with Your Bin
2020 is the year to break bad habits. So make the resolution not to pour gunk down your drains, or flush rubbish down the toilet. Throwing things other than water, toilet paper or human waste down drains or toilets can block your pipes. Place bins near those areas instead to encourage you and others to use them more.
