What can you do to help save water?
There are many things a homeowner can do to help save our critical water resources. The first and most important thing is to actually make a personal commitment to accepting an “Eco-Friendly” lifestyle. Honestly it isn’t as hard to do as you might think. If each of us makes the decision to go “Green,” we can help save our Planet for our children and our grandchildren. In Atlanta, we enjoy a great way of life. Let’s ensure that we leave the future generations of Atlanta area residents, equally as blessed. Here are some specific areas of your home to focus on: Shower Heads, Toilets, Kitchen Faucets, Water Heaters, Bath Tubs, Whirlpool and Garden Tubs and let’s not forget about our outdoor irrigation and sprinkler systems. Each of the fixtures and water systems mentioned above can be modified to lessen the flow rates, without impacting your overall water pressure.
Go Green to Save Green
Going green is easier and less expensive than you might think. Consumers often fear having to pay a premium to have a more eco-friendly home. Believe it or not, it is possible to go green and save money at the same time. These tips will not only make a difference for the environment, but also add some green in your wallet.
Control The Flow Rates
According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense® program, an average of 100 gallons of water is consumed by Americans each day. To reduce your overall water use, install water saving fixtures such as bathroom faucets, bathroom toilets, bathroom shower heads, kitchen faucets, tankless water heaters and more. With our partnerships with Kohler, Moen and Mansfield, we can provide truly world class fixtures that are all designed with water conservation in mind. As an example: A new water conserving faucet can have a flow rate optimized to 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm). At that flow rate, you would enjoy great performance while reducing your overall water usage by up to 32%.
Take Showers Instead Of Baths
By switching from a bath to a shower, you not only save time, but also money. A typical ten minute bath requires 30 – 70 gallons of water, versus 25 gallons under a 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm) shower head. If you want to conserve even more resources, contact Pete’s Plumbing Incorporated today at 770-442-3934 and hire us to install new Kohler, Moen or Mansfield water conserving fixtures in your home.
These major brands come with multi-setting shower heads, and highly specialized aerators and flow rate technologies which ensure performance, while saving significant gpm’s. People sometimes fear low-flow showerheads, feeling they can restrict water flow. We have done exhaustive research with our manufacturing partners to ensure that every “Green Plumbing” fixture we install is designed to enhance performance and not detract from it. For example, some Moen shower heads feature a flow-optimized spiral pattern, treating you to a full, enveloping spray. Plus, with a flow of 1.75 gpm (compared to the industry-standard 2.5 gpm), you’ll feel good knowing that you’re using 30 percent less water and also reducing energy costs. As less hot water is used your water heater needs less electricity and you save money in the form of lower electric, water and sewer bills.
