It’s time to make eco-conscious decisions at home! Eco-friendly living is trending, as environmental care becomes a hot topic for clothing brands, celebrities, and now homeowners. But, how does one make the transformation towards eco-centric living, and where do you start?
We here at Epic Plumbing believe there is no better place to begin your water-conservation efforts than in the room that uses the most water in your entire home—your bathroom.
Here’s how to effortlessly reduce water consumption without jeopardizing your plumbing function and operation:
Add Aerators Throughout Your Home
Every faucet in your home can have one of these installed! Aerators add air to your water supply, as it is dispensed, to reduce the amount of water flowing out of your fixture at once. Without altering your water pressure, aerators inherently save you water with each use following installation.
These appliances are easy to install and budget-friendly! It takes all of few minutes to screw an aerator into your current faucet head and only about five dollars to purchase one!
Make The Switch To Low-Flow Fixtures
Low-flow showerheads are taking the market by a storm. With their water-saving capabilities and ability to perform just as well as traditional appliances, there’s no reason to hold off on installing your new fixtures!
With low-flow showerhead installation, you will see up to a 20% decrease in your water use, saving an average of 3,000 gallons of water per year. The only noticeable difference you’ll encounter with low-flow fixtures will be the significant drop in your monthly water costs!
Move To Dual-Flush Toilets
Water-efficient toilets have astronomically reduced the amount of water needed per flush. Older appliances use up to 7 gallons of water per flush; whereas, newer dual-flush toilets only require under 2 gallons of water per flush.
When looking for your water-conscious toilet, make sure you purchase a product with the WaterSense label. These toilets are manufactured to meet the highest standards for both performance and efficiency. This product alone can save you up to 13,000 gallons of water annually.
