or do you have a separate (oil or gas or electric) hot water heater?
Above photos 2, 3, and 4, show separate hot water heaters in same order: oil, gas, electric.

As we have learned on previous pages, water is vital to our survival.
We all have a responsibility not to WASTE water.
save water
Do you hear any water dripping in your house? Listen...

The Sink? - Change the washer
The Toilet Tank? - Adjust the float
The Shower or Tub? - Change the shower head or tub faucet
An ON and OFF Valve? - Tighten that second nut under the handle
The Garden Hose? - Tighten the connections
...AND when in DOUBT, call a well recommended Licence Plumber!

Well, the cost for wasted water may not add up to much in "WATER DOLLARS" from your pocket, but can you imagine if we had all that wasted fresh water back from the past ten years. Millions of gallons are lost each day just through the leaks and cracks in our country's old water delivery systems operated by municipalities. All that wasted water would be enough to grow crops in a drought stricken African country. Definitely enough to end water shortages right here in our own country. PAUSE FOR A FEW MINUTES AND READ THESE DETAILS!


AND we ask... Who is in charge of fixing all of America's old water pipes infected with cracks?
A movement is needed now, or water shortages in America will become all too common.
