How Low Flow Fixtures Can Help You Save On Water
Water is a valuable resource, but it has a limited supply. Every household has a responsibility to conserve water usage everyday. If you are already mindful about turning off your faucet while you are brushing your teeth and taking shorter showers, you are off to a good start.
However, there are extra steps that you can take. By having low-flow toilets, showerheads and faucets installed, you can contribute more toward water conservation without making any extra effort.
If your bathroom has a standard toilet, you use about 3.5 gallons of water every time you flush. Older ones can even use as much as five to seven gallons. On the other hand, a low-flow toilet uses just an average of 1.5 gallons or less per flush.
If your household has four people, this can add up to thousands of gallons in water saving every year. These high-efficiency toilets come in many styles that will complement your bathroom decor. Your plumbing professional can help you explore your options and choose the right one.
Everyone enjoys a nice hot shower. A conventional shower-head allows water to flow at about five gallons of water per minute, sometimes even more. However, a low-flow shower-head can cut that flow rate in half.
Do not worry if you think less water results in a weaker shower. The special aerating technology in the showerhead allows water to flow with enough water pressure that will give you an invigorating experience in the shower.
Ever time you turn on your sink, you can use as much as three gallons of water per minute. With a low-flow faucet, you can reduce that water usage by about half. If you think about how many times you and your family turn on the sink, you can really make a difference in your water usage. The aerated faucet keeps the force of the water steady so that you would hardly realize that you are actually using less water.
When you install these low-flow plumbing fixtures, you can significantly reduce the amount of water you use without sacrificing your quality of life. Not only that, but you will cut down on your water bill tremendously.
Contact an experienced plumbing professional to discuss your options. He can install these fixtures and take care of removal of the old fixtures at the same time. When you work with an experienced plumber, you can have peace of mind that the job is done properly and efficiently.
