[00:00:04] Speaker A: Welcome to the weekend warriors home improvement show, built by bar lumber. When it comes to big or small projects around the home, Tony and Cory have got the know how and the answers to make your life just a bit easier. Here they are, your weekend warriors, Tony and Cory. [00:00:29] Speaker B: You know, Tony, in the summertime, we think about water conservation when we're in droughts, when we haven't seen rain in a while. It rains a lot here in the Pacific Northwest, but sometimes it just doesn't rain. And we get these notifications on our phones. It says, please be careful how you use water. Right. [00:00:50] Speaker C: Look, we live in the Pacific Northwest. We live in the Willamette Valley. We have a lot of water here. This is what you're saying. But listen to this. Moderate to exceptional drought covers 27.9% of the United States, including Puerto Rico. [00:01:10] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:01:11] Speaker C: That is. I mean, 28% of the United States experiences drought, and we just don't know what that's like here. I feel like there's been some summers in my 40 years of being an adult that I can remember we were like, oh, boy, we better conserve water. [00:01:33] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:01:34] Speaker B: I mean, every so often, I feel like when we haven't had the snow packs and we haven't gotten the rain that we should have gotten. I mean, I've lived in Oregon for almost 20 years, and I have only seen it a couple of times where they told you not to water your grass, or they've put restrictions on things, mostly with grass watering. But I know in other parts of the country, like California, they've seen some pretty big droughts. [00:01:58] Speaker C: But is it going to come and bite us like an earthquake? Everyone's talking about that we have no experience with, and we keep saying, yeah, is that really going to happen? [00:02:08] Speaker B: Oh, I don't know. But I tell you what, like I said, in some parts of the country, it's a pretty big, mean. Arizona, for instance, they live in a desert, a literal desert. So water conservation is probably a pretty big deal to them. [00:02:22] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:02:23] Speaker C: And then. Yet they have these monsoons where water rushes across the entire state and everyone feels flooded. [00:02:31] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:02:31] Speaker B: Well, there's no way to capture that water. [00:02:32] Speaker D: Right. Yeah. [00:02:33] Speaker C: So it's crazy thing. But I'll tell you what, water is one of the single most important and maybe the most important survival resource that we need. We have to have it. And what will we do if we don't? [00:02:56] Speaker B: Well, did you know that 97% of all of the earth's water is non drinkable? It's salt water. [00:03:06] Speaker C: Salt water. Right. [00:03:07] Speaker B: So only 3% of all the water on earth is fresh. [00:03:12] Speaker C: That seems like an unbelievable number, but obviously oceans are huge. [00:03:16] Speaker B: Yeah, they are huge. [00:03:18] Speaker C: But there is technology, of course, that allows us to desalinate water. Right. [00:03:24] Speaker B: But it's expensive, takes a lot of energy. [00:03:26] Speaker C: Who's got a couple of million dollars sitting around so they can buy a desalinator? [00:03:30] Speaker B: Billions, probably. [00:03:31] Speaker C: I have no idea. All I know is this. Today we're going to talk about ways that you can responsibly conserve water without really compromising your way of life. Absolutely. [00:03:45] Speaker B: There's little things you can do. There's some bigger things that you can do. And we're going to start with this one. This is probably the easiest one that everybody can do. And honestly, you would want to do this anyway because it's going to save you money in the long run, prevent leaks. And what I mean by that is you want to regularly check all of your things that use water from your appliances to your faucets, your toilets. Tony actually has a crazy story about a toilet running and it cost you a ton of money. But you were able to negotiate that bill down, right? [00:04:25] Speaker C: I did, yeah. [00:04:26] Speaker B: Tell that story, yeah. [00:04:27] Speaker C: Well, for a one time scenario, the local jurisdiction will in some cases help you out, which was the case for me. But basically we had a part of the guts inside the tank of the toilet failed. And because of that, water was running continuously into the bowl, from the tank. [00:04:52] Speaker B: Into the bowl and ultimately down the drain. [00:04:55] Speaker C: And then it would get up to a certain point. Right. And then it would go right down through the drain and then the tank would fill up. Right. And then it would leak some more and then the tank would fill up. [00:05:07] Speaker B: But it was so low you really didn't notice it? [00:05:09] Speaker C: I didn't really notice. It's not a loud, particularly loud toilet. And so I didn't notice it. When I did finally notice that it was happening, I was like, oh, I noticed the toilet is running. That's weird. I wonder why that's happening. I determined why it was happening and I thought, okay, I'm going to put that on my list of things that needs to be done and I'm going to get the guts changed in that toilet tank. But you know what, Corey? I did not prioritize it right away and get it done right away. And I didn't know how long it had been happening. And lo and behold, we got the monthly water bill and it was over $500 when it was normally, what, 27? [00:05:52] Speaker B: Holy cow. [00:05:53] Speaker C: $500 just for water in one month. And so of course, we got that leak fixed right away. And then we called the water people and we were like, man, I don't know what happened here. And they said, well, it looks like likely you had an appliance that was leaking water. And they said, but when this happens, we will split the bill with you. So it ended up only costing us $250 instead of $500, which was nicer, but still ten times what our bill normally would be. [00:06:26] Speaker B: If you would have done this one little trick, you would have never have ran into that. And it's simple. What you do is you take a little bit of dye, blue dye, maybe red dye, and drop it into your tank. And then over a period of time, you wait and you go in and see if the color in your bowl has changed at all. If you see any of that food coloring or dye that you use in the bowl itself, then you have a slow leak. And if you have a slow leak, like Tony said, you can just go out and buy kits. You can replace all the guts for, what, under $20. And it's not a hard project. [00:07:02] Speaker C: Yeah, it's a commitment. It takes you an hour, probably, to get all that stuff pulled apart and put back in there like it's supposed to be. [00:07:09] Speaker B: Absolutely. [00:07:10] Speaker C: But it's worth doing it, especially if ultimately, your water bill is higher than it should be, and that water is just getting wasted. [00:07:17] Speaker D: Yes. [00:07:18] Speaker B: Here's a couple more. Replace the washer hoses on your washing machine at least every five years, because here's the thing. They are always under pressure. And when you run clothes in your washing machine, you turn it on, it depressurizes them, and then when it turns off, it pressurizes them more. And there's always this fluctuation of water pressure in a rubber hose, and they only last so long, and eventually they burst. [00:07:50] Speaker C: And when that happens, you're losing a bunch of water. [00:07:53] Speaker B: Yeah, you're losing a bunch of water. And you probably are more than likely going to have a giant insurance claim. [00:07:58] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:07:58] Speaker C: A lot of damage inside the house. It can be caused by that. So that makes absolutely great sense. I know that I have replaced the water supply lines on my washing machine and my sinks and my toilets. And so I'm sitting pretty right now. [00:08:14] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:08:14] Speaker B: I'm actually coming up on five years for mine. And I'll tell you what, mine are a giant pain in the butt because my washer and dryer, actually, my dryer has a hose to it as well. [00:08:28] Speaker C: What? [00:08:29] Speaker B: Yeah, it has this steam thing. [00:08:31] Speaker C: Okay. That's pretty cool. [00:08:32] Speaker B: Yeah, it works pretty nice. But the washer and dryer are built in to a thing, so I got to take them completely out. And the room that they're in is small and it's just a pain. But what if I don't do it? It's going to happen. We're going to go on vacation for a week and come back, and our house is going to be. [00:08:52] Speaker C: A lot of people are out there listening to us right now, and they're saying, that is one in a million. That's not going to happen. [00:08:57] Speaker B: No, it happened. [00:08:57] Speaker C: You know what else is one in a million? Your water heater failing. Happened to me. You know what else is one in a million? Your refrigerator supply line failing. [00:09:05] Speaker B: Happened to me. [00:09:06] Speaker C: Happened to Corey. I'm telling you, we are just normal guys that do home repair, but these things that happened to us did not happen because of anything we did. The water heater that failed in my house was the original water heater, and I built the house. I didn't build it myself. It got built by me. But, yeah, I mean, these are just things that happen. Sometimes they happen. And the way to avoid them is to be wary if it's been too long or something that should be regularly maintenanced that you have not maintenanced. That's how you're going to avoid these things. Take it from us. [00:09:46] Speaker B: So here's another thing. Here's one thing that you can do. You can go out and buy what's called leak detectors. There's these little devices that go under your appliances, like your refrigerator, your dishwasher, your kitchen sink, vanity in the bathroom. You can place these things wherever you can buy them as kits. They come with a home base, and then they talk to the home base and then it alerts you, says, hey, leak water is here. Present leak. And it notifies you right away. And you can go turn it off. They also make mechanisms that attach to your water main. So if it detects a leak, it shuts it off automatically. That's kind of nice. And then there's other ones that connect to the water main that just report back to you. We actually have one of these. We share this little vacation house and nobody's there 75% of the time, so we actually turn the water off. But there's other things, sprinklers and whatnot, that run occasionally. And we had the same situation. We had a sprinkler line burst and our water bill skyrocketed, normally $50 a month. And we got the bill and it was 400 and something dollars. And come to find out, we had to dig it up and find the place where. The place where it was leaking. [00:11:08] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:11:10] Speaker B: So we ended up buying a kit that wasn't terribly expensive. I think it cost us, like, $150. And there's, like, this little sensor that goes on the water meter itself, and then that reports back to a home base station inside the house that's connected to the Internet, and it notifies us if it detects a leak. [00:11:28] Speaker C: Interesting. Okay. [00:11:30] Speaker B: It's pretty accurate. I tell you what. Because it knows. It can tell if something has turned on and turned off. If it runs the sprinklers and then they turn off, it knows that there's not a leak. It's pretty smart. [00:11:46] Speaker C: That is interesting. [00:11:47] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:11:47] Speaker C: I love that. I don't have sensors in those types of places, but it's something I want to do right now. [00:11:56] Speaker B: I lived through, like you said, my refrigerator line burst, and I even heard it. I heard it behind the fridge, but it was a built in refrigerator, and it sounded like this humming hiss sound. Basically, it sounded like my refrigerator motor or the condenser or something was just going bad. It kind of had just, like, this little wine to it, and it went on for, like, two or three days before. I was like, what is going on here? And I tried to pull the refrigerator out of its hole, and it was so wet that it had sunk down. [00:12:35] Speaker C: Into the particle board. [00:12:36] Speaker B: Into the particle. [00:12:36] Speaker C: It had melted the particle board. [00:12:38] Speaker B: Couldn't even get it out of its hole. I had to take a pry bar, pry the thing up, pull it out, only to realize it was spraying water everywhere. And it wasn't a ton of water, it was just enough. But it ruined all my cabinets, and that cost me eight months of remodel. [00:12:54] Speaker C: That was a major setback. [00:12:57] Speaker B: Terrible. Absolutely. [00:12:59] Speaker C: Tons of money as well. [00:13:00] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:13:01] Speaker B: Number two on the list is to install water efficient appliances. You can, of course, buy low flow toilets. You can get water saving washing machines, energy efficient dishwashers. There's a lot of controversy on the next one, which is, I'm just going to throw it in here is showerheads. Water efficient shower heads. I have used showerheads that spew such little water that it feels like you're using an RV shower. The RV showers that have, like, one quarter of a gallon per hour. [00:13:36] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:13:36] Speaker C: I mean, someone, a homeowner, should be able to choose how much pressure they get in their shower and that it shouldn't be something that they have to suffer through. [00:13:48] Speaker B: Well, there's these things called aerators that you can put in line, so you kind of screw it in, then your shower head screws into that and it introduces air into there, creating a better pressure. So you're using less water, but it's a stronger pressure. [00:14:06] Speaker C: Interesting. [00:14:08] Speaker B: There's ways around it. There are jurisdictions around the country where you are required to use these lower GPM gallons per minute toilets, these low flow toilets. And I remember back in the day when low GPM toilets first came out, you remember those? [00:14:25] Speaker C: I do. I remember toilets that had a flushing device that was two parts. One was a larger button and one was a smaller button. [00:14:36] Speaker B: Oh, they still make those? [00:14:37] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:14:37] Speaker C: If you choose the smaller button, then that's for number one, and if you choose the larger button, that's for number two. [00:14:43] Speaker B: I call it liquids and solids. [00:14:45] Speaker C: There you go. [00:14:46] Speaker B: But back in the day, when they first came out, they were such terrible toilets that they were constantly being clogged. And that is not the case anymore. They have designed these toilets that use air pressure and water, and it's crazy, like, what kind of powerful flush you get on such little water anymore. So if you've got an ancient toilet, and that was your concern, I'd do it. Go for it. Buy the newer toilet. Because you remember the old toilets, the tanks on them were giant. [00:15:18] Speaker C: Oh, yeah. It hasn't been that long ago since I replaced mine. I just replaced all three toilets in. [00:15:23] Speaker B: My house with the low flow, all. [00:15:25] Speaker C: With brand new low flow toilets. [00:15:28] Speaker B: And they work great. [00:15:29] Speaker C: They do work great. I haven't had to plunge one since I replaced them all. [00:15:33] Speaker B: I swear those old ones were like five gallons of flush. [00:15:36] Speaker C: Yeah, they did a good job of getting the stuff down, but they definitely used a lot of water. [00:15:44] Speaker B: Absolutely. What's the next one? [00:15:47] Speaker C: Tone, we talked about? There's some things you can do that will not impact you financially, but maybe something that is just a choice that you make. I'm just going to throw this out there. I probably won't be doing this. This won't be the one way I choose to conserve water. But some of you might take shorter showers if you're trying to conserve water and use less water if you're trying to reduce your water bill, if you're just trying to do the right thing, time your showers. If you normally take a shower, just until you feel like you're good to go, maybe take a stopwatch, find out how long it takes you to actually just get all the stuff done. Go into the shower one time with a decision to make sure that everything gets done. Am I going to get out in the fastest time possible? That'll give you something to shoot for when you take your shower. And you'll find that sometimes your showers are 30 or 35 or 40, when really what's necessary is 510 or 15 or 20. [00:16:58] Speaker B: It depends on how much surface area you're cleaning. [00:17:00] Speaker C: Sure. Anyway, that is one way to do it. But in order to do that, you need to know how long does it take you to do the bare minimum. And once you know that, then you can hold yourself accountable. [00:17:16] Speaker B: You could also use the RV trick where you turn on the shower, you get wet, turn the water off. Turn the water off. [00:17:25] Speaker C: Scrub up. [00:17:26] Speaker B: Yeah, exactly. Lather up your hair, the shampoo, the soap. [00:17:29] Speaker C: Get a little bit in your eyes. [00:17:30] Speaker B: Turn the water back on screen a little bit. [00:17:32] Speaker C: Turn the water back on. [00:17:33] Speaker B: Yeah, that's the old RV trick. But in some places, I mean, I have a friend who's got a cabin in Lake Billy Chinook in three rivers there, and they're off grid there. Completely off. [00:17:46] Speaker D: Right? [00:17:47] Speaker C: Sure. [00:17:47] Speaker B: So they have a well, but their well has a tank and it's pretty small. So we have to do that when we go there. Turn the water off, lather up, turn it back on. [00:18:00] Speaker D: Nice. [00:18:01] Speaker B: And we have to conserve water. It's not an option. [00:18:05] Speaker D: Got it. [00:18:06] Speaker B: Next one on the list is to collect rainwater. You can put out rain barrels. If you've never seen a rain barrel, it basically is a barrel. I mean, a lot of people use like old ag, those plastic, plastic barrels. There's a guy in Portland that used to make custom rain barrels that were surrounded in cedar. They look pretty nice, but you usually take it off of your downspout from your gutter and it flows in, and then you can use that water for watering your plants. And the thing about that is you have to be kind of careful because there are weird laws in certain jurisdictions that only allow you to collect so much. And then there's jurisdictions that don't allow rain barrels at all. They consider rain as a public resource and you're not allowed to keep it. So it's kind of weird. So I just say that because rain barrels, you see them online, you see how cool they are and you just want to do it. But just make sure before you fork out all that cash, you're not going to get any trouble. [00:19:13] Speaker C: Yeah, I have heard that some jurisdictions require a request, like you have to get a permit to capture water. [00:19:24] Speaker B: Water. Really? [00:19:25] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:19:26] Speaker C: You need a permit for water catchment if it's over a certain amount. [00:19:30] Speaker B: Catchment, I believe catch is a word. [00:19:32] Speaker C: Yes, sir. [00:19:33] Speaker B: I'm looking it up. [00:19:34] Speaker C: So the other thing you can do when you're watering your plants that you have around the house, inside the house or outside the house is to be responsible there as well. And you can do that by watering outside early in the morning or late at night so that you're avoiding water that dissipates or gets what happens. What does it happen when this. [00:20:01] Speaker B: It evaporates. [00:20:02] Speaker C: Evaporates. [00:20:03] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:20:04] Speaker C: I was looking for that word. [00:20:05] Speaker B: I know, catchment. Sorry, I was looking it up. Catchment. It is a word. [00:20:08] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:20:08] Speaker C: You can avoid that. What did you say? Evaporating. [00:20:13] Speaker B: Evaporation. [00:20:15] Speaker C: Avoid the evaporation of water during the hottest part of the day by watering in the morning and at night also. Again, this does a way that you can save water, but it might encroach on your luxury a little bit. You can wash the dishes in your sink with the sink plugged, and then use the water from the sink to water your plants. If you water your vegetables and fruits, they may come out tasting like dawn or dove. But I kid. Yeah. Double using water. Using water twice. Your plants don't care if the water went across your hands or your dishes first. Right. So you could use those to water your plants outside or your plants inside that don't bear fruit or vegetables. [00:21:21] Speaker B: That's to an extreme, that's for sure. If you are using water for other things after you've already used it for, like you said, that's pretty extreme. But in a situation where you need to conserve water, it's a good tip. [00:21:34] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:21:35] Speaker B: Next one on the list. This one's pretty easy. You know what's funny is I actually grew up doing this a lot. And it's sweeping. Sweeping the driveway, sweeping the curbs. It's so easy to get out the hose. [00:21:50] Speaker C: I know. [00:21:51] Speaker B: Hose it off. [00:21:52] Speaker C: It is so much easier to get out the hose and hose it off. And it's kind of satisfying. If I'm holding the hose or a pressure washer and I'm cleaning a surface using that hose or pressure washer, it is very satisfying. It really is, like, extremely satisfying. [00:22:12] Speaker B: But so is the sweep if you know how to get a broom and hold it properly. My dad showed me how to hold a broom properly so you could walk with it and sweep, sweep. You do quick sweeping action. [00:22:25] Speaker D: Quick. [00:22:25] Speaker C: Interesting. [00:22:26] Speaker B: Sweep, sweep, sweep, sweep. And it makes it really quick. [00:22:29] Speaker C: It's easier for people who are shorter. Taller people have to bend over more, or we have to buy a broom with a really long handle so we don't have to bend over. [00:22:39] Speaker B: So be it. [00:22:39] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:22:40] Speaker B: So real quick. I did look it up there's a website called todayshomeowner.com. I don't know how accurate this is. It's just a website. It says it was updated last month. And rainwater harvesting. [00:22:56] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:22:57] Speaker B: Is actually, there are regulations in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois and Louisiana. [00:23:09] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:23:09] Speaker B: And I know actually it's missing Oregon because there are regulations in Oregon, specifically in the city of Portland, because when we talked to that rain barrel guy who makes those rain barrels here in Portland. Yep. And he told us about it, he said, you need to be careful. You can only have x amount of these before you're considered capturing too much rainwater. [00:23:32] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:23:32] Speaker C: Interesting. Very interesting. [00:23:34] Speaker B: But there are actual states that encourage capturing rainwater. Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, and maybe Maryland. They encourage you to harvest rainwater and use it. [00:23:51] Speaker C: Interesting. Does Arizona also encourage you to harvest monsoon water? I just wonder. Seems like something they might do. They do not encourage it. [00:24:00] Speaker D: No. [00:24:01] Speaker B: It says in Arizona there are bills that allow towns to generate funds for harvesting systems. [00:24:06] Speaker C: Interesting. You'd think that they would want to have everybody do their part to handle the excess water that they get. [00:24:12] Speaker B: Oh, shoot, there's two more pages. Sorry. [00:24:16] Speaker C: Oh, there's lots. [00:24:17] Speaker B: Nevada. They, they actually regulate it. North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Oregon. [00:24:23] Speaker D: Yes. [00:24:24] Speaker B: And page three. Texas, Utah, Virginia, and. [00:24:30] Speaker C: Oh, yeah, and Washington. That's right. [00:24:32] Speaker B: It says in Washington it's legal to collect rainwater, but there are regulations. You must use the water on the property it is collected on. The system for collecting water must serve another purpose, such as irrigation. And each county has different rules, so. Yeah. Anyway, that's all I said. You just got to look at the regulations. Sometimes you could get in trouble. That's all I'm saying. Notable next one on the list. This is an easy one. Don't run the dishwasher until it's full. Don't run your washing machine until it's full. [00:25:12] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:25:13] Speaker B: If you really want to save money, I guess you could hand wash. Nobody. [00:25:16] Speaker C: Wants to do that with one of those boards. [00:25:21] Speaker B: Oh, I said dishwasher, hand wash, laundry. [00:25:25] Speaker C: Yeah, I've seen it done. [00:25:27] Speaker B: Oh, yeah. You're old enough. [00:25:29] Speaker C: Nice. [00:25:30] Speaker B: Probably go down to the creek. Is that what you see? [00:25:32] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:25:33] Speaker C: Down with the crowd ads. Down where the crowd ads sing. Turn off the tap. That's the next one up here. Turn off the faucet while you're brushing your teeth, while you're washing your face, while you're scrubbing the dishes. It's a simple habit, but it can save a considerable amount of water. Just like you said in the shower. Jump in the shower, get wet, turn off the water, lather up, do the thing, rinse it off, get out. [00:26:01] Speaker B: That's one thing we've always taught our kids. With your toothbrush, put your toothpaste on there, wet it, turn it off, turn the faucet off, brush your know, when the kids are little, they just want to turn it on and sit there and play in the water. But you're just pouring it, it just makes no sense. [00:26:18] Speaker C: Yep, I hear what you're saying. [00:26:19] Speaker B: All right, Tony, the very last one on our list is this one seems like it doesn't belong, but it does. And it's insulate your pipes. And the reason this helps is because insulating your pipes helps hot water get to its final destination quicker. [00:26:41] Speaker D: Okay. [00:26:42] Speaker B: You're not starting off with cold pipes or colder water. The hot water coming from your hot water heater will make its way a lot faster, reducing the amount of time you're waiting for hot water. [00:26:54] Speaker C: I mean, most of these pipes, if I'm being honest, are in the walls and you won't be able to access them. [00:27:00] Speaker B: Well, if they're in the walls, then they're probably insulated, or at least in a conditioned space. [00:27:04] Speaker C: But if you have them exposed under the house, which is pretty common, then that's where you can insulate them. Par lumber company, for example, sells pipe insulation in different diameters. It kind of looks like a pool noodle. They're about 6ft long, it's already got a slice in it and a hole in the middle, and you just slide it right over your pipe. You get as many of those as you need, they're not very expensive. And you can insulate exposed pipe in the attic or in the crawl space. And that can result in you not needing to run the water as long to get warm water to your faucet. [00:27:43] Speaker B: Absolutely. And one thing to keep in mind, if you are doing that project, measure your pipes. First you're going to go to the store and they're going to say, do you have half inch, three quarter inch, one inch? All of those are viable pipe sizes. One inch, not so common, but three quarter inch and half inch. Absolutely. Depending on how your house is plumbed. [00:28:03] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:28:03] Speaker B: So check that out, make your list and then go. [00:28:07] Speaker C: Absolutely. I'm really glad we talked about this. This, of course, has been just another part of our conservation series, our energy efficient sort of green series, and there is more to come, so stay tuned for that. [00:28:24] Speaker B: Yeah, we'll be talking about some more stuff next week. And anyway, if you found anything useful in this podcast, send it to your friend if they need to learn how to conserve some water. [00:28:35] Speaker D: Yeah.
