High Efficiency Faucets
Conventional faucets that are in most homes tend to use around 2.5 gallons of water per minute or even more. However, if these faucets were replaced with high-efficiency faucets, the flow rates in these do not exceed more than 1.5 gallons of water per minute. That is over a gallon of water per minute that can be saved every time you turn on the tap to wash your hands, dishes, take a shower, or even wash your vehicle.
High Efficiency Showerheads
Studies show that in the average home, showering accounts for more than 20 percent of the total water used in that household. You could save water in the shower too, by purchasing a low flow-rate showerhead. By purchasing a high efficiency showerhead for your shower, you could save half a gallon or more for every minute you take a shower. It may not seem like that is much in savings, but when it is accumulated over the course of a month it does add up and can reduce the amount of water used by as much as 20% or more. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing’s professional Fort Worth plumbers can provide the plumbing installation for the devices if you require.
High Efficiency Toilets
There are even toilets available in the market today that can save significant amounts of water. Older toilets may use around 3.5 gallons of water per flush or more. Older low flow toilets did not perform so well, but technology and innovation has improved greatly over the years since the first low flow models came onto the market. Today, high efficiency toilets can use as little as 1.28 gallons of water per flush. There are even dual-flush toilets available that utilize two buttons. One is for liquids and the other for waste to conserve even more water. If you would like assistance from our Fort Worth plumbers then give us a call.
Additional Tips for Saving Water
There are other ways you can conserve your water at home. Whether it be waiting until you have a full load of dishes and laundry before using these appliances to inspecting for water leaks and running toilets and having these repaired as soon as possible. It is up to each and every one of us to be mindful of how much water we use in our households and that we should. Water is a precious resource that we all take for granted and it is most definitely something that we should not do.
