Replacing old taps can be an excellent solution to reduce water waste at home.
As we have already said, even small leaks, which can be ascribable to old taps, can have a significant impact on utility bills as well as on our planet’s already very limited water resources.
In fact, old taps can leak because of wear and tear and corrosion, as well as not being able to regulate the flow of water properly.
New taps, on the other hand, are designed to ensure optimal water flow and minimise waste. There are faucet aerators, which use air to make the water flows more evenly and save money. In addition, new efficient taps can be equipped with flow restrictors, which reduce the amount of water flowing through the tap.
Replacing old taps is something that can easily be done by yourself or with the help of a professional, depending on your level of technical expertise. An interesting option is to apply water-saving devices to them to reduce water waste at home.
