Water leaks sometimes go unidentified and you can run up a pretty high water bill, not to mention wasting such as important natural resource. You may not be aware of this, but water leaks from your faucets and pipes can add up to more than twenty gallons a day.
Similarly, the old and inefficient plumbing systems waste a huge amount of water every day. To deal with these problems and for an eco-friendly lifestyle that is also easy on your pocket, you should consider ‘green plumbing’.
Green plumbing involves the use of clever plumbing techniques which ensure that your showers, toilets, faucets etc are leak-free and save gallons of water that you otherwise would have wasted with your old plumbing.
New, low-flow toilets, showerheads and faucets can significantly bring down your home’s water consumption. For instance, if you were to replace your old showerhead with the latest low-flow model, you would be saving 2.5 to 7.5 gallons of water per minute. If the problem is leaky faucets, then it is time you got them repaired or replaced. You can consider the latest faucet models that are strong, do not wear out easily, and are also quite attractive.
Green plumbing can detect worn-out, jammed or blocked parts of your toilet or kitchen sink that you wouldn’t be able to spot otherwise. This is done by conducting dye tests. Find an expert plumber to take a look at it instead of trying to fix it yourself.
