AcornVac Supports Fix a Leak Week and Conservation Efforts
2014 marks the 6th annual EPA WaterSense Fix a Leak Week, which occurs each March. The goal is to remind Americans to check their plumbing systems for leaks and, in turn, make an impact on water conservation. By identifying and fixing leaks, you can save up to 10,000 gallons of water each year. Practicallygreen.com says, “When people fix a leak at home, they're then more likely to report leaks at work/school and when traveling.”
We take water conservation seriously at AcornVac. Our vacuum plumbing systems help prevent leaks by drawing air into the system rather than letting water out. Another important benefit of installing a vacuum plumbing system is the ability to reduce water consumption by up to 68%. We make it easier to achieve a “green” makeover by cutting installation, maintenance and utility costs, as well.
Join in on the action and get educated. EPA WaterSense provides the following helpful tools:
Here are just a few of the figures that might help inspire you to take action:
- Fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners about 10 percent on their water bills.
- The average household's leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.
- Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.
