Preserve Quality with a Water Purification System

Purchasing water is a popular trend these days. From the gym to the grocery store people are carrying bought plastic water bottles. A water filtration system can ease the cost and preserve the quality of water you already pay the city to use in your own home. Your New York City NY water filtration plumbing service can install and service water treatment and softeners for your home.

Bottled water is cleaner, healthier and tastes better than tap water. House tap water often contains the taste and odor of chlorine, lead, mercury, agricultural pollutants and often local sediment. These pollutants can come from corroded plumbing systems, decay, landfill run-off or local croplands. Unfiltered house water not only affects your drinking water, but the water you use for laundry, washing your hands, and washing off in the shower. What if you could have that same clean, healthy, tasty water without having to go to the store or recycle the bottles after use?

HUB Plumbing, your local New York City NY plumbing service, can provide a professionally installed home water filtration system. Our water filter and water softener systems will guarantee purified water throughout your home. From drinking water to faucet, shower, and laundry water; your water will be clean and healthy.

HUB Plumbing will also check the water for hardness, iron and PH levels. Treating your water efficiently is just as important as having clean water on hand. Our most valuable resource, water, should be treated as such and your New York City plumber is here with expertise on local water conditions and how to treat them.

Saving Water in Your Shower

New York City plumberWith so much emphasis on saving money in today’s economy and “going green,” your shower can be the first place in your home to start saving water. The average person in America uses 80-100 gallons of water daily, meaning the average American family uses around 300 gallons of water every day. The biggest water usage comes from flushing the toilet, with the second highest coming from baths and showers. Our trained New York City, NY plumbers at Hub Plumbing & Mechanical can offer you solutions to saving water – and money – today.

The most obvious step to conserving water in your shower is to install a low-flow shower head. By cutting back on your showerhead’s GPM (gallons per minute), your home can decrease its daily water intake while still possessing all the pleasures of a pleasing shower. Cutting the flow down to somewhere 1-3 GPM can save you 2-4 gallons per minute when you’re in the shower, saving you money off your home’s water bill. Many low-flow shower heads now come with adjustable pressure restrictors, allowing you to adjust the water flow based on personal preferences. So if you like a stronger shower than your spouse, you two can still both be satisfied.

Other simple solutions to saving water would be to limit your shower time. The average American spends 10 minutes in the shower, wasting water in the process. Installing a shower timer can make you better aware of your shower duration, cutting down the length to a more reasonable time. Simply set your desired time, and an alarm will sound when you have reached your desired length.

Now more than ever, saving water and money is essential for your home. With these simple water-saving tips, you can do just that.
