Low Flow Water Fixtures
Does your household use a lot of water? Low-flow fixtures such as toilets, shower heads, and faucet aerators moderate the flow of water; therefore, providing significant savings! Low-flow toilets are designed with two flush options: half flush for liquid waste and full flush for disposal of solid waste. Using half of the amount of water traditionally used switching to a low-flow toilet can save more than 5,000 gallons of water per year for each household member. Low-flow showerheads reduce the traditional amount of water used by even more than half, but still provide enough pressure to get the suds out of your hair. Old sink faucets expend a lot of water; flow restrictors can be added to most faucets and can be a quick, less expensive way to minimize the amount of water used in your household or replace the old faucets and use even less gallons of water per minute. While low-flow fixtures can require extra upfront cost, due to the savings in as little as three years your extra investment can be putting more money back in your wallet!
