Do New Plumbing Fixtures Conserve Water?

High-efficiency Toilets

If your current toilet was installed prior to 1994, it’s likely inefficient. Older toilets that are 30 or more years old often use 3.5 or more gallons of water per flush, which is highly inefficient. High-efficient toilets, meanwhile, that meet WaterSense criteria use 1.28 gallons of water or less per flush. Installing more water-efficient toilets in Riverwoods can save money, improve the value of your home and help reduce water waste.

High-efficiency Showerheads

Showerheads that date back to pre-1994, before the passing of the Energy Policy of 1992, were incredibly inefficient, using up to 3-7 gallons of water per minute (gpm). This is especially noteworthy because showering makes up for the lion’s share of a home’s water usage. Installing a low-flow showerhead that uses 2 gpm can save you 20% on your water usage, while a 1.75 gpm showerhead saves about 30% on water usage.

High-efficiency Faucets

You should replace leaking faucets if they’re old and dripping. A faucet that drips once every five seconds can waste as much as 400 gallons of water per year! Today’s high-efficient faucets have a water-flow rate of 1.5 gallons per minute or less, compared to inefficient faucets that use 2.2 gallons of water or more per minute.

Other Benefits of Installing New Plumbing Fixtures

Aside from reducing water consumption and saving money, installing new plumbing fixtures offers the following benefits and more:

  • Environmentally friendly. Reducing the amount of water you use on a daily basis is better for the environment and will ensure there’s water for future generations.
  • Improving your home’s appearance. Replacing unsightly, inefficient plumbing fixtures with new fixtures is a quick and cost-effective way to improve your home’s aesthetics.
  • Increasing your home’s value. If you’re trying to sell your home or plan to in the near future, replacing your aging fixtures can help increase your home’s value and make it more appealing to potential buyers.
