Well, we’re almost halfway through the year. For some, our resolutions have been made and forgotten. But for others, we’re still on track. Maybe we set a goal for recycling more or retrofitting our home with new energy saving products. For many, it’s become a deep conviction to do our fair share to preserve our environment. You don’t have to wait any longer as the saying goes, “Just Do It.” Don’t put it off any longer and put your plans in motion. Installing new low flow fixtures is an excellent place to start. And you don’t have to break the bank to do it.
Low Flow Fixtures Means Savings Without Sacrifice
Technology has crept into every area of our lives, and that includes low flow fixtures for our toilets and faucets. Did you know that our bathrooms are the smallest room in our homes but account for half the water usage? We all know that turning off the water faucet when shaving or brushing our teeth can save enormous amounts of water (3000 gallons of water over a year). But did you know that turning on our faucets can save on water also? Installing a faucet that has the WaterSense label can provide significant savings without sacrificing high performance. They will help reduce water usage while keeping your hard earned dollars in your pocket, where it belongs. Traditional faucets use 2.2 gallons of water per minute while the WaterSense labeled fixtures use 1.5, that’s a 30% saving.
We All Need To Do Our Part
If we all work together by retrofitting our bathrooms with new low flow fixtures, we can save billions of gallons of water a year. In the past, low flow fixtures brought us out of our comfort zone. Shower heads seem more like a mist. That’s not the case any longer. We’ve even seen advancements in accessories such as aerators. Wait, what’s an aerator? It’s the small attachment that connects to the end of your faucet. You don’t need to wait until the end of the year to set a goal to upgrade your bathroom too low flow faucets. In fact, “low flow” sounds a little misleading because you won’t recognize the difference.
