3) Having an on-demand hot water pump is another device that can save you money in a couple of ways. First, you will no longer lose heat from hot water that is unused in the water pipes. And you don’t have to wait for hot water to arrive so you’re not using as much water overall.
4) Before moving forward with your water filtration system consider having your water tested by a professional. It’s important to choose the right system that will optimize your plumbing system by targeting the correct water quality issue.
