If your water bill is really high, you should look into these potential causes:

👉Dripping Faucet
Even small leaks can turn into big issues and increase your water bills. Fixing a leaky faucet can be a DIY job, but you have to determine what kind of faucet you have.

👉Leaking or Running Toilets. Toilets are the biggest water wasters in your home

👉Leaks under the sink. This can sometimes be hard to detect but is a dangerous problem. You don’t want water leaking in your cabinets or on your floor.

👉Old or leaky water heater. Look around the base of the water heater for any signs of leaks.

👉Leaky Washing Machine. There can be a number of reasons why your washing machine is leaking. It could be worn-out tub fittings, leaky internal hoses or leaky supply hoses.

👉Leaky Dishwasher. Look for wet, warped or discoloration stains on your floors, walls, and cabinets.

I highly recommend shower benches and shower niches for your next bathroom reno.

Here we are installing a prefabricated shower bench by Schluter, specifically designed to integrate with the Schluter-Shower-System.

You can get Prefabricated triangular shower benches as well.

KERDI-FIX will help you fix the bench in place, and KERDI-BAND should be used to seal the edges of the assembly to ensure that the bench is suitably waterproofed.

If you skip steps or don't have the proper training, you could have water intrusion problems in your washroom (and mold). PLAN IT RIGHT 👍

If you can, populate your gardens with lots of local plants. Why? They typically require less water and maintenance than more exotic species because they've adapted to your local climate and soil type.

As a bonus, local plants can also provide food for our local animals, keeping a nice sustainable ecosystem for our furry neighbours. #TipTuesday

When planning your landscaping, remember that water needs to drain away from your home’s exterior. That’s why proper grading is so important. If water flows back toward your foundation, it will find a way to seep in to your house. And then you are dealing with issues like mold. 🏠

For the DIYers out there-you may think its simple to install interlocking, but Incorrectly laying down interlocking can create major issues. Without properly compacting the soil and gravel underneath the stone, that soil could sink, allowing water to pool – or worse, flow right toward your foundation.
A job done poorly on the outside of your home can actually cause big problems inside.

There have been many times over the course of my career that I have wanted to quit filming. Then I think of all the homeowners who are looking for education and awareness, and I feel a sense of responsibility towards them. https://t.co/5n2D8V1ur4
