Water Conservation in your Home
Did you know nearly 70% of the earth’s surface is water? Even more surprising, only 1% is safe for human consumption. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average single-family home typically uses 70 gallons of water per individual every day. There are simple changes you can make to your home that conserve water, energy, and even money.
The annual EPA Fix-a-leak week occurs in March from March 14-20 and is celebrated to raise awareness and teach how to find and fix household leaks. Ten thousand gallons of water are wasted every year due to leaks in the home. Worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves most commonly cause leaks. These leak types are quick to fix with the right products, tools, and Danco plumbing parts.
Damaged and dated toilet flappers can cause leaks as they may become full of minerals and bacteria decay over time. Replacing a faulty toilet flapper with a water-saving toilet repair kit will eliminate the risk of leaks.
Better than a standard flapper, FLT231 HydroStop replaces the rubber flapper entirely. This Danco plumbing part is engineered to eliminate the most common toilet problems. Unlike the angled, floating close of a flapper, the HydroStop drops vertically and solidly onto the flush valve opening to create a better seal and eliminate the possibility of leaks. FLT231 Hydrostop is an elite water-saving system equipped with overflow prevention, adjustable water settings, and a stronger, durable stainless steel cable that lasts longer and is less likely to break. The HydroStop is now available at Amazon.

Old and worn faucet washers and gaskets frequently cause leaks in faucets. The EPA estimates that a leaking faucet wastes more than 3,000 gallons per year from faucets that drip at a rate of 1 drip per second.
Sink faucets typically contain 1 or more O-rings used to prevent water from leaking out around the spout. If you detect a leak, replacing the O-ring might be necessary. Luckily, this is a simple affordable DIY fix with Danco faucet parts. Danco’s O-Rings save water, time, and energy through a tough, flexible rubber construction that will eliminate leaks providing years of worry free faucet use.
