Your home’s water bill is generally the easiest to plan for because water usage rarely fluctuates throughout the year. Regardless of how warm or cold it is, you’re still going to shower, cook food, and clean clothes at roughly the same rate each month. However, there are a few variables that might cause you to pay more for this utility than usual.
A Water Leak
A broken pipe in the basement might allow a significant amount of water to simply flow wherever it wants to go. Issues with a toilet, sink, or outdoor hose may also result in hundreds of gallons of wasted water per month. In many cases, an extremely high water bill is the first sign that anything is amiss. If you think that there is an issue in your home, the folks at Half Moon Plumbing in Owasso can help. We offer leak detection as well as water line replacement services in a friendly, timely, and affordable manner.
Over time, dishwashers, washing machines, or other appliances that use water become less efficient. This may be true even if you have carefully maintained them in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
The Faucet Is Dripping
You may not think much of the water that is slowly dripping out of the faucet on your bathroom or kitchen sink. However, while not necessarily an emergency situation, allowing a faucet to drip is equivalent to dozens of gallons of water being wasted every month. Therefore, it may be a good idea to look into tightening the faucet or ensuring that any other potential underlying causes of that slow drip are taken care of as quickly as possible.
