Did you know that you can reduce your environmental impact while creating a more sustainable home through eco friendly plumbing upgrades and general maintenance? These methods can help your home to become more environmentally friendly while potentially saving you money on your water utility bills over time. Here’s what you can do:
Take Advantage of Low Flow Technology
Faucets and shower heads are now available that can reduce the amount of water used in your daily activities. You can even install toilets that use less water during each flush while maintaining the same hygienic effectiveness.
Enhance The Lifespan of Your Piping
A whole home water filtration system will help to extend the lifespan of your plumbing system, reducing the chances of corrosion that can lead to wasteful water leakage. This also will remove unwanted contaminants from your water.
Be Conscious of Your Bathing & Showering
On average, a normal shower head will put out 2.5 gallons of water every minute. It’s easy to assume that you’re always conserving water by showering instead of filling up the tub for a bath, but consider how long you actually shower. This is a perfect example of how a low flow showerhead can help you conserve water.
Promptly Have Leaks Fixed
Not only do plumbing leaks waste the water that you are paying for, but it also wastefully drains local water resources in general. Having a regular, professional plumbing inspection will alert you to any unseen leaks that might exist behind plumbing fixtures or walls.
