The Benefits Of Low-Flow Plumbing Fixtures
Low-flow plumbing and water fixtures in your home can be incredibly beneficial for you and the environment. Businesses like Traditional Plumbing can send a plumber to your home or business to provide you with services to install and maintain the low-flow plumbing and water fixtures you may choose to have.
Let's see what low-flow plumbing and water fixtures in your home can mean for you!
Cuts Down On Your Water Use
Low-flow water and plumbing fixtures are specially designed to limit water usage and waste. An average low-flow fixture uses around half the gallons per minute than a regular fixture you may already have or have seen. Over time you can save about a thousand gallons of water per year.
Save On Energy
When you cut down on water usage, there's less energy required to heat it as well. A decrease in the need to heat your water means less usage for your water heater. This can mean your water heater lasts longer and is under less wear and tear.
Look At The Numbers
So a regular faucet uses anywhere from 1 to 3 gallons a minute. Low-flow faucets can mean reducing your water usage by nearly half as low-flow faucets use 1.5 gallons a minte.
Standard toilets use 1.6 gallons per flush whereas low-flow toilets use 1.2 gallons per flush.
Standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons of water a minute. Low-flow showerheads use no more than 2.0 gallons per minute.
