Plumbers are often seen as an unfortunate necessity, someone to call when there is a clog in a drain or a leak that must be fixed. In reality, the best plumbing companies in NYC can make your life easier and save you money. Everyday plumbing problems like leaky faucets and running toilets can cost property owners hundreds of dollars.
According to one study, a toilet that runs continuously can cost you over $400 per year. Although most leaky toilets cost less than this, the financial impact of a plumbing problem can be substantial.
D.C. Water says that the average toilet uses about a gallon of water per minute while it’s running. Left unchecked, that adds up to 1,440 gallons a day. At a D.C. Water’s rate of about penny per gallon, that’s about $14 a day; a toilet that runs continuously for a month would tack on an extra $420 to a residential water bill. And that, frankly, would be a real shitty thing to see on an invoice. (Pun so intended.)
If you are a landlord, visible plumbing problems like leaky faucets and running toilets can harm your ability to get the best tenants. Good tenants are always in demand and have plenty of choices of where to live; they use visible problems such as leaky plumbing or odd smells to gauge how well the a landlord takes care of the property. Keeping your plumbing in the best condition is key to getting and keeping tenants.
The best plumbing companies in NYC also save you money by replacing old infrastructure with new plumbing hardware. Replacing an inefficient furnace or water heater with a newer model can save you hundreds of dollars during the winter. If you have multiple tenants in one building, or you share a duplex or triplex with tenants, new plumbing hardware may let you transfer responsibility for utilities from yourself to your tenants.
