Green Plumbing

Green plumbing is an effort to reduce the amount of water and energy we use. As we all know California is in a very serious drought and residents of our beautiful cities are making quite an effort to do whatever they can to help conserve. Green plumbing can be implemented in various ways and ot only will it help reduce your bills but it will make your home and environment healthier.

Here are some ways we can help save water by installing these plumbing fixtures:

Switch to low flush toilets

Most standard toilets today are 3.5 gpf toilets (gpf = gallons per flush), low flush models are 1.6 gpf, which can be saving you about 15,000 gallons of waters. This will reduce your water bill dramatically.

Switch to dual flush toilets

Dual flush toilets usually have 2 buttons on the top or 2 handles, one option flushes at 1.6, the other at 1.1. gpf. The Environment Protection Agency has stated that if we all would switch to a dual flush toilet, we could be saving around 2 billion gallons of water a day.
