• How to Measure the Output of Your Water Sprinkler

    Installing a sprinkler system in your yard is a great way to ensure that your trees and shrubs receive an appropriate amount of water on a regular basis. Without the proper monitoring, however, a sprinkler system can also lead to waste.


    In this video you will learn how to measure the output of your water sprinkler. One easy way to measure the amount of water released by your sprinkler is to simply place a measuring cup on your lawn and check it after 15 minutes of sprinkler activity. Using this measurement, you can extrapolate the amount of water released by your sprinkler in an hour.

  • Tips for Reducing Your Home Water Usage This Summer

    earth falling into water

    With summer on the way, homeowners and businesses across the country are bracing themselves for high utility bills. Because of the higher temperatures, people tend to increase water consumption during the summer months. Fortunately, by practicing the right plumbing maintenance habits, you can reduce your home water usage this summer and reduce your utility bills. Here are some tips for reducing home water usage this summer.

    Install Low-Flow Fixtures
    Installing low-flow fixtures is one of the most effective ways to reduce home water usage. Low-flow fixtures reduce water flow at output, whether it is a faucet or shower head. Over time, the water saved can accumulate and lead to significant savings. In addition, installing low-flow fixtures is also a great way to do your part for the environment by practicing water conservation.

    Have Your Plumbing System Inspected
    While faucet leaks are easy to spot, plumbing leaks can also occur in areas that are less accessible. In addition to compromising water-flow, leaks can cause water damage in your home and increase your water bills. Having a professional plumber inspect your home’s plumbing system can help you catch and repair leaks before they get too serious and reduce your water usage this summer.

    Consider Energy Star Appliances
    Energy Star is an international standard for energy efficiency that is used to determine how efficient a given appliance is. The Energy Star designation is used to rate appliances like dishwashers and washing machines. Because both of these appliances are fairly water intensive, investing in Energy Star appliances can make a significant difference.

    Don’t let excessive water usage put a damper on your summer. By choosing your appliances wisely and ensuring that your plumbing system is in top condition, you can help protect your home from water damage, reduce water bills, and do your part for the environment. If you want to learn more about how to decrease water usage this summer, call Ace Plumbing at (916) 455-4548.
