Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we want to thank all of the mothers out there for the time that they have spent. All of the dinners they have cooked, all the times that they have taken care of us while we were sick, and all the other things that they have done. With Mother’s Day coming up soon, make sure that you spend some time with your mom.
Our moms, because they love us, always were telling us things that might have seemed annoying, but they were teaching us life skills. Below are some of the things that your mom might have told you to do, which today may help you in your adult life, even your plumbing system.
Mom Saying, “Make Sure You Wipe the Glassware Good!”
Have you ever watched The Golden Girls? There was an episode where Dorothy and Sophia were doing the dishes and Sophia kept handing back the glasses because they weren’t cleaned to her liking.
While it could have been a picky situation, maybe they had hard water in their house! Hard water stains are a big problem and they could be impacting more than your glassware.
While it starts as a nagging issue you have to deal with when washing dishes, clothes, or even your hair, if left unchecked it could be damaging your plumbing too. Luckily, a water softener can make quick work of the issue, and who knows, maybe you won’t have to worry about wiping those glasses again!
Mom asking, "Why Are You in The Bathroom so Long?"
One of the biggest things that parents hated was when their kids would take long showers. If the house didn’t have a well, they had a hefty water bill that they had to pay.
Not only can long showers cause a high water bill, but it also can help with corroding the pipes. That can cost you a lot of money, not to mention leaks and other problems.
While you might still enjoy your long showers, now that you’re paying the bills, at least you’re more aware of how much time you spend in the bathroom.
Mom Saying, “Have I Ever Told You About how We Spent Time Collecting Water?”
Chances are as a child you heard stories about how your mom had to walk uphill both ways to go to school, or it could have been your grandmother, depending on how old you are.
Maybe they even took it a step further about collecting water from the well or from the creek. But collecting water is still a good idea these days – rainwater that is.
This is a great way that you can get water for watering your garden, filling wading pools or washing your car. Not only can this help you save money, but it also is a great way to conserve water and help the planet.
This Mother’s Day, at Super Plumbers we want to make sure that you are giving your mom a call and letting her know how much you appreciate her for what she’s done for you.
If you don’t have a mom or if your mom has passed on, go and visit a friend’s mom or a mom you know. They will appreciate the touch and it will make them smile. Because of moms, we have learned about how to save money on our water bill.
Yes, it could have been annoying but those are life lessons that have lasting impacts, and we’ll remember them for years to come. Moms are wonderful people, and they only did the things that they did because they love us.
