Tip & How-To about Plumbing
We all read lots of tips when it comes to saving water....but this tip is probably the best kept secret in the water saving arena!! Whenever you are preparing the water for a shower begin by turning the hot water on full and leaving the cold water completely off UNTIL the hot water begins to flow. THEN add the cold into the mix. Other wise, you send hundreds of gallons of cold water down the drain if you begin by letting a mixture of hot and cold run until it finally gets hot. WHY is this the case. Because, the hot water sitting in the hot water pipe cools off over time. The only way to actually get the hot water to the spout is to displace all of the cooled off water out of the hot water pipe until the hot water starts to flow again!
