Conserve Water with Green Plumbing Amarillo, TXIn this day and age, many people are more conscious than ever of the environment. It’s a great idea to engage in activity that will ultimately have some type of impact on the world in which we live. One effective way to accomplish this goal is by working to conserve water. It’s possible to recycle water to help prevent using water unnecessarily. Green plumbing is the term that is used to help in water conservation efforts that may have a large impact when every person begins to get involved.

There are many ways you can work to conserve water in and around your home. By knowing the right items to rely on to accomplish this goal, you can and will have greater success.

Affordable, Low-Flow Plumbing Fixtures

By using a variety of plumbing fixtures in your home, you can reduce the amount of water that you use on a daily basis. Some of these items include low-flow toilets, dual flush toilets, low-flow faucets and low-flow showerheads. Below you will find detailed information on each of these green plumbing items:

Low-Flow Bathroom Showerheads:

While traditional showerheads use 4-5 gallons per minute, low-flow showerheads use only about 2.5 gallons per minute, which drastically saves water without impacting your daily shower routine.

Low-Flow and Dual Flush Toilets:

Regular household toilets use anywhere from 3.5 to 7 gallons of water per flush, which is excessive. With dual-flush toilets and low-flow toilets, you are able to choose the amount of water that you use per flush: either 1.1 or 1.6 gallons per flush. 1.6 gallons is the maximum amount allowed for these fixtures, and it seems like a drastic reduction from traditional toilets, but don’t worry. Most people find that they only need the 1.1 gpf (gallons per flush) setting, which saves a whole half a gallon of water per flush and a whole lot more in comparison to 3.5 to 7 gallons!

Low-Flow Bathroom and Kitchen Faucets:

Low-flow faucet aerators for your kitchen and bathroom sinks can reduce water usage by almost 40% by only using the maximum of 2.5 gallons per minute, as opposed to the traditional 4 gallons per minute.

Tankless Water Heaters:

Water heaters are critical for you to get the temperature of your water as warm as you want it to be. Hot water is necessary for taking a shower, cooking meals and simply giving you the peace of mind that you need to know it’s there.

Due to modern technology, you can now rely on a tankless water heater to help get your water heating needs met. This water heater works to eliminate wasting water because it delivers on demand. This can save gallons of water per day and this can ultimately save you money.

By relying on green plumbing fixtures, you can decrease the chance of water waste and help yourself and the environment at the same time.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
