Green Plumbing – It’s Great!

People are becoming more and more conscious about being and living a more green life. Because of this there has been an increasing interest in having green plumbing installed over the past few years. Why wouldn’t people become interested in it? Green plumbing doesn’t only contribute to the slowing down of the constant depletion of resources for fresh water but will lower your water bill as well! We want there to be fresh clean water for our children right? So, we all have to do our part.

If you are living in Santa Monica, it’s pretty easy to find green plumbers, if you are looking for them. They can quickly install a green plumbing system in your home which will immediately lower your water consumption. The main areas that green plumbing can make the most impact are in the bathrooms and the kitchen. Although, if you are having green plumbing installed within your house, it would be even better to alter the plumbing in the garden, garage and other parts of the house too.

In the bathroom, your toilet, shower and tub faucets can be altered so that you won’t waste so much water when they are in use. You can opt for the low pressure shower head which will still provide you with the same function but with less water consumption. You can also have the faucet for your tubs replaced with low pressure one. For the toilet, you can also opt for the dual flush feature which will lower the required water for every flush.

When it comes to the kitchen, you can ask your green plumber to install a low pressure kitchen faucet. This is even more important because the kitchen faucet usually consumes a lot of water because of constant washing of dishes, foods, and counters. Replacing this faucet can be the single most important investment in your green plumbing system. You can also install a water regulator in your dishwasher to lessen the water needed to run the machine and clean the dishes. If you have a regulator for the dishwasher, you no longer need to hand wash the dishes just to save water. Actually, if you have installed the regulator, you will use more water to hand wash the dishes than to use the dishwasher.

Do yourself and the environment a favor and look into green plumbing. Your children and children’s children will thank you.
