Thanks to a lack of measurable rain in many regions recently, it has become more important than ever to conserve water. Other than taking showers instead of baths and not doing the laundry on a daily basis, there are other measures you can take to not only help conserve water, but lower your utility bills as well. Using water conservation plumbing products are a great way of doing this.
For example, did you know that by installing performance shower heads, you could have a savings of 25 gallons per shower? That, in itself, adds up to a total savings of 9,000 gallons per year, per person. With the new performance pressure head designs, you won’t even realize a difference in water output.
Water-saving faucets can also save about 30 percent of water without the sacrifice of water pressure. The redesigned faucets can drastically drop the g allons used per minute. An added bonus is that many new faucets come with convenient features such as built-in filters.
Replacing your old toilet and water tank with a water-conserving combination can save many gallons as well. The New York Times, quoting the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, stated that toilets account for over a third of the water used in most homes. By replacing toilets that use no more than 1.3 gallons per flush, you can cut down immensely on water waste. Dual-flush toilets featuring a lower-flush button for liquid waste and a higher-flush button for solid waste also can save many gallons of water.
Not only can these alternative plumbing fixtures save you substantial costs on your monthly bills, but many utility companies also offer rebates and other incentives for their use.
