Charles Town Plumber’s Tip: Green Your Home’s Plumbing

Increasingly, Charles Town homeowners throughout the region are turning to green technologies to reduce their water consumption and increase their environmental consciousness. If you are concerned about how much water you consume on a daily basis or would like to do your part to protect the environment, consider some of these simple tips for greening your Charles Town home’s plumbing.

 Low Flow Fixtures and Faucets

You can replace nearly any fixture or faucet in your home with a low flow alternative. Especially if your current fixtures and faucets are more than 20 years old, an upgrade will greatly reduce how much water is consumed when flushing the toilet or taking a shower. For example, low flow toilets use as little as 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf). Older toilets used 3.5 gpf and some very old toilets used as much as 5 gpf.

Similarly, faucets and shower heads were once rated to use between 4 and 7 gallons per minute. Today’s low flow faucets and shower heads use as little as 2.2 gallons per minute, and some super low flow alternatives can even use as little as 1.5 gallons per minute.

Rain Water Collection

There are more advanced modern systems for rain water collection that allow you to irrigate your lawn and supply your hose. While indoor uses for untreated rainwater are limited, it can be used extensively for outdoor projects, greatly reducing how much water you consume to wash your car, water your lawn or fill your pool.
