Eco-friendly plumbing products are all the rage these days!

Product manufacturers are making eco-friendly plumbing products: water-saving products, smart-home efficiency products, self-cleaning products that eliminate the need for toxic and pipe corroding chemicals, water-filtration products to ensure safe drinking water, rain and waste-water reuse products, and the list goes on and on.  With so many products available, it can be difficult to determine what is worth your money and what is not.  Below are three eco-friendly plumbing products that will save you money, keep you safe, and help protect the environment.

Delta Leak Detector

The sooner you’re aware of a leaking pipe, the better.  Early detection and repair of a leaky pipe can save you thousands of dollars in damage repair costs and wasted water and can protect the environment from the associated costs.  Delta has recently introduced a new leak detector that uses smart-home technology to pinpoint the presence and location of even the slightest water leak in your home, and alert you via a smartphone app and in-home alarm system.  Delta’s leak detector can be placed anywhere in your home, including near sump pumps and water heaters, under sinks, and behind appliances, and uses two conductive metal rings to monitor and detect leaks.  The rings trigger an audio alarm and LED lighting system in your home, and send an alert to your smartphone.  It is compatible with IOS and Android devices and connects to your home Wi-Fi network.

The technology review site CNET states that Kohler’s Delta Leak Detector which is an eco-friendly plumbing product, and has a simple set-up and feature-rich app that makes it very user-friendly and customizable, but its downsides are that it cannot be submerged fully into the water and it does not integrate with other smart-home products.

Purchase:

American Standard ActiClean System

A new line of toilets from American Standard is equipped with several eco-friendly plumbing product features, including:

These features combine to make a very energy efficient toilet.  The ActiClean system is powerful enough that it eliminates the need for harsh cleaners that are harmful to your pipes and environmentally toxic.  The ActiClean system has two cleaning settings: quick clean and deep clean.  Quick clean is for regular upkeep, cleans in just one minute, and uses fewer resources than deep clean, which is more thorough and saturates your bowl for a cleaning that lasts ten minutes.

In between cleanings, your bowl is kept clean every flush with the toilet’s VorMax flushing and self-cleaning technology.  VorMax helps maintain your clean bowl between ActiClean cleanings by combining your toilet flush with powerful scrubbing action that cleans two times better than a conventional toilet.

This line of toilets is further protected by an EverClean glaze, which has an antimicrobial surface that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria and is easy to keep clean without the use of harsh and environmentally toxic chemicals.

These toilets are also WaterSense approved as high-efficiency toilets, using only 1.28 gallons of water per flush.

Purchase:

Kohler Aquifer Filtration System

Controlling the quality of water with eco-friendly plumbing products that enter your home is extremely important.  Aging infrastructure and old pipes can lead to contaminants like lead damaging the purity of your water.  Kohler’s Aquifer Filtration System reduces the levels of chlorine, mercury, lead, pharmaceuticals, and other contaminants in your household drinking water using eco-friendly coconut shell activated carbon.  This superior product ensures your family’s safety at far less of an environmental cost than its coal-based competitors.

The Aquifer Filtration System fits under any kitchen, bathroom, or utility sink and filters water without compromising your faucet’s performance.  The unit features a two-stage water filtration and absorption system, with a double cartridge flow that retains faucet flow rate with no performance drop-off.  It can be used with any kitchen, bathroom, or beverage faucet, though Kohler recommends use with Wellspring beverage and Carafe kitchen faucets.  Kohler also has a postage paid recycling program for used cartridges, to reduce solid waste to landfills.
