The importance of water conservation can’t be emphasized enough. Not only is it good business practice to operate green these days, it’s also an excellent way to shave some extra money off your overhead. If you don’t have water conserving plumbing products yet, here’s why you should:
- Standard toilets use at least 3.5 gallons of water per flush. If you’re a small business owner with 25 employees who, on average, each use the facilities twice a day, that’s a whopping 175 gallons down the literal drain. Conversely, green toilets, such as the Zurn EcoVantage series, use between 1-1.6 gallons per flush, lowering that number to a mere 80 gallons, less than half the water wasted by standard toilets.
- Water conserving bubblers quench thirst while limiting water usage. Ever lower your lips to a water fountain only to have twice as much water as you can possibly drink splash all over your face? Not only is that extra water wasted, the amount that grazes your lips and contaminates the drain could potentially make others sick. Solve both problems by choosing an eco-friendly fountain like the Halsey Taylor HVRGRN, with a water conservation bubbler designed to dispense the right amount of water – eliminating soaked shirts and limiting the spread of germs.
- Sensor-operated faucets could be another means of lowering your water bill while also fighting the contamination that results from dozens of dirty hands turning the same knob before and after washing. Sloan offers a wide selection of sensor-controlled faucets, including a series of combination faucet and soap dispensers that take hands out of the equation entirely, leaving bacteria in the sink and regulating the use of both resources.
Installing even one of these water conserving products could reduce your bill considerably. Meanwhile, you’ll know that your company is doing all it can to preserve the world’s water supply and promote a greener future.
