Does waste of precious water and energy bother you? Then it may be time for you to consider green plumbing.

Three Ways to Make Your Plumbing Green:

Find and repair leaks. If any of the fixtures or piping in your home leak water, then you could be losing substantial amounts of money every month. Not only that, leaky plumbing can also put your home water supply and waste water systems at risk of further systemic damage. If you see stains or discoloration on or around your plumbing, then have you plumbing inspected for leaks by a plumbing professional.

Upgrade to a tankless or hybrid water heater. If your conventional tank storage heater is at the end of its life, consider not only replacing it with a new high-efficiency model, but also upgrading to a tankless or hybrid water heater. With no standby heat loss and endless hot water, a tankless system may also improve your comfort. A tankless water heater uses a heat pump to circulate thermal energy rather than directly heat your hot water, making it a highly efficiency alternative; it is also a direct-heating backup in case it’s too cold to for the heat pump to work efficiently.

Low-flow. Take a look at the fixtures in your bathroom. Are they old, leaky, or simply just average? Low-flow toilets and showerheads can actually save you up to 20% on your next water bill. They are a cost-effective solution that may even enhance the comfort of one of the most important rooms in the home. Toilets make for about 30% of our daily indoor water use. While most conventional toilets use about 3.5 gallons per flush (gpf), low flow toilets cut that number nearly in half to 1.6 gpf. A low flow showerhead can also save you substantial amounts of water on a daily basis. It can save you anywhere from 25% to 60%.
