Contractors - National Association is encouraging
members and homeowners to participate in “Fix a Leak
Week,” a first-time effort of the EPA’s
WaterSense Program that will encourage Americans to improve the water
efficiency of their homes by checking for and fixing leaks.
“We have urged our members across the
country to take part in this very worthwhile event,” said PHCC PresidentJoe Schmitt, owner of Joe Schmitt & Sons
Plumbing and Heating, Englewood, Ohio. “PHCC members are trained and
qualified professionals - the perfect adviser to help homeowners learn how they
can implement water- and energy-efficient technologies in their homes. At the
same time, their involvement will raise awareness of PHCC and its commitment to
protecting public health and safety.”
on their years of training and experience, PHCC members can provide tips on how
to save energy and water and also show customers how to detect leaks in their
homes. And when needed, PHCC members can be available to fix common leaky
parts (such as shower heads, toilets and faucets). When replacement parts are
required, participating PHCC members can steer consumers toward purchasing and
using WaterSense products that the EPA has had certified as water efficient by
an independent, licensed certifying body.
members will offer special incentives during the week, such as complimentary
water/energy audits, coupons and rebates. For a list of PHCC members in
