Posted on May 23rd, 2018 by BlueMountain

If you’ve never been into crafting before, owning a home is the time to hop on the DIY bandwagon.

Plumber Fixing Pipe

There will be plenty of repairs and details that will need to be attended to by a professional, but why not save a little money when you can by getting to some easier tasks yourself?

We’re here to provide you with the plumbing repair knowledge you need to get the job done.

  1. Install a Water-Saving Faucet Aerator

Faucet aerators are small mesh parts that will break up the water that streams through your faucet. This will help you save money by reducing the amount of water flow from your faucet, while also maintaining a high-pressure flow — talk about a win, win!

  1. Fix that Leaky Shower Head

Typically, shower heads account for almost 20% of your water bill each month. And if you add a leak on top of that, you’re looking at quite a lot of water, and not to mention, money, wasted.

To fix a leaky shower head, grab a screwdriver and pliers, and replace the shower handle.

  1. Install a Dual-Flush Toilet Valve

The Dual Flush Valve can cut back your water use almost in half! This two-button, dual-flush feature gives you two flushing options: the full flush and the quick flush, helping you use significantly less water!
