save water

Water is a resource that is limited but used in an unlimited way. Any place where you use water all the time, you can find many ways to reduce its use. On residential properties, three areas where you can save this natural resource are the bathroom, kitchen, and landscape. Here are some pointers to help you use less water in some areas of your home. Here are some useful suggestions from the experts at  SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire.

Kitchen

  • Washing dishes manually use up more water than using a dishwasher. Ensure that your dishwasher has a full load before you start the washing cycle. You will not only save water but will save your efforts involved in manual cleaning.
  • Newer the technologies, the better features they have. If your dishwasher is old, you benefit by upgrading to a water-smart one.  Buy a water-efficient dishwasher that has a higher energy-efficiency level because it will reduce your energy bills and save your money.
  • Get low-flow function faucets installed in your kitchen so they will discharge less water while in use and avoid waste.
  • Use your garbage disposal as minimally as you can. While garbage disposal is highly efficient in disposing of smelly food residues, it also uses a lot of water in its working. If you can discard the rubbish in the trash or use it for compost, you can minimise the use of the garbage disposal.

Bathroom

  • Your bathroom is where the maximum wastage of water occurs. This is also the area where you can try to save significant amounts of water. Instead of keeping the water flowing, allow it to run only when in use. For instance, simple and routine acts like putting a stopper on the sink drain while shaving and turning off the faucet when brushing can conserve a lot of water.
  • You may like to bathe under a high-pressure shower. However, an old model showerhead with a low-flow shower is not the ideal solution. But do you need to compromise on your showering experience? The latest and advanced models of low-flow showers satisfy your needs perfectly while using only a small percentage of water than standard ones. You can replace your showerhead yourself with the latest model using some basic tools,
  • You can use the same type of low-flow faucets in the kitchen sink or other places as well.
  • A shower-bath needs far less water than filling up a tub with water. The amount of water saved is significant.
  • Get all taps and plumbing installations checked regularly for leaks. This will take care of any potential plumbing problems and is an excellent way to save water.

Laundry

Running a washing machine with half loads is a colossal waste of water. Always collect your laundry and ensure that you have a full load for the washing machine, helping to save water and energy. The same holds for the dishwasher. For any more information, please call SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire at (02) 9158 3513 or drop us a line via this Online Form, and we will revert shortly.

pipe relining

Till very recently, it was extremely time-consuming, invasive, and expensive to repair any underground or sewer line problems.  Depending on how severe the issue was, it could be challenging to fix the deterioration in underground pipes.

However, with the introduction of the pipe relining method, it has become far easier for professional plumbing companies to handle all types of underground pipe repairs. Well-established and reputed companies like SPS Plumbers Sutherland Shire now use this highly innovative and advanced technology to repair cracked pipes.

About Pipe Relining For Sewer Repairs

This is a very straightforward method in which:

  • The plumber first digs two small trenches on either side of the pipeline.
  • They will use CCTV drain cameras to inspect the inside of the pipe and determine exactly where the damage is and the extent of it.
  • If any root blockages or clogs are found in the pipe, those will be removed using the latest hydro jet technology and root cutting machines.
  • Another inspection of the internal areas of the pipe will be carried out using the CCTV drain camera.
  • If the experts determine that pipe relining is the best solution for the existing problem, they will provide you with all the information about how it works and what its benefits are.
  • Once you approve the solution and the quote, they will start with the pipe relining work.
  • In pipe relining, a very resilient epoxy sleeve is inserted into the underground pipe.
  • The sleeve is then inflated until it fits the internals pace snugly.
  • The lining will be allowed to set and harden for about 2-3 hours.
  • Another CCTV drain camera check will follow.
  • Once the plumbing professionals have determined that the sleeve is set in place correctly and all the damage and deterioration has been fixed, they will consider their job complete.
  • The trenches will be refilled with the removed earth, and the area will be cleared off all the debris

The benefits of pipe relining

  • It is a time-saving technique as very small trenches are a dug in the landscaping.
  • Relining is minimally invasive, and you do not have to worry about any extensive damage to the hardscaped areas on your property.  It also means that there is minimal destruction when the work is being carried out.
  • The cost of the relining process might have a seemingly higher upfront cost. However, when you compare the overall amount you save on fixing damaged landscaping, the process is extremely cost-effective.
  • Pipe relining is a reliable way of fixing damaged or deteriorating underground pipes.  It has been used for numerous years across Europe and the United States and is a proven technology. 
  • It can last for many decades without any trouble, which also means you get an excellent return on investment.
  • Pipe relining can be used to fix different types of pipes, including those made of concrete, copper, iron, PVC, and more.
