Nowadays, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for efficiency and sustainability when looking for appliances for your home. This goes for your electricity-using appliances as well as your water-based appliances in your bathroom and otherwise. At Pride Plumbing of Rochester, we focus on plumbing and we want to take some time to explain the benefits of low-flow water appliances for saving water.
Toilets are one of the most high-use water appliances in your home. Every time you flush you are using as much as 6 gallons of water. We know that toilets can do their job without using that much water if they are designed with that in mind. Modern low-flow options can use less than 2 gallons per flush, which can make a huge difference in the long run. It’s not uncommon to save over $100 over the course of a year.
Low-Flow Shower Head
Besides your toilet, your shower is one of the biggest water users in your entire home. No matter how long you spend in the shower, you’ll be using about 40% less water every time. Since you are using hot water in your shower, you won’t just save on water. You’ll save on gas as well! That translates into direct savings on your utility bills.
It’s important to look at ways you can save on your utility bills. With low-flow appliances, you can save money and use less resources which benefits everyone. Do your research because you could be using so much less water than you are using now!
