Green Plumbing Ideas #1: Start by Limiting water use and eliminate water waste 

Green Plumbing ideas are for the penny conscious homeowner.  The earth has a limited supply of water and a constantly growing use pattern, and adding “green” fixtures and plumbing to your home will save the environment, and save you money.

When most people think of high water use, sinks and toilets are first to come to mind, which are two great places to start, but green plumbing possibilities do not end there. There are several ways to be more responsible and cost-effective with your water consumption.

Green Plumbing Ideas #2:  Toilet designed for limited water use

Reduce water utilization with low flow toilets. There are Dual flow toilets which allow regular flush, or a low flow flush- based on need.  There are also power-flush toilets which use a vacuum suction flush.

Green Plumbing Ideas #3:  Sinks and Shower water usage

All sinks can be fitted with low flow faucets which produce plenty of water for normal use without overloading the system and wasting water. The kitchen sink faucet can be equipped with a hose device for easily turning on the water to rinse and automatically shut off the flow when the handle is released. One of the most water wastes of a home is a kitchen sink where water runs constantly during rinsing and washing dishes, pots, and pans.

Sensor operated water flow faucets can be installed in all of the bathrooms to prevent wasting water. The sensor recognizes when a hand is in front of the spigot and turns on and off accordingly.  Sensor-operated faucets also help control germs from touching faucets with dirty hands.

Install a low-flow showerhead to control the amount of water used during bathing.

Green Plumbing Ideas #4:  Water Heaters and Other Devices designed with Green in mind!

Water heaters with reservoirs which store large amounts of water and heat it constantly even when there is no demand, not only waste water but huge amounts of energy to heat the container. Tankless water heaters allow hot water to be generated only when called upon and eliminates heating element costs during times water is not being used.

There is the option of installing point of use water heaters. These units do not supply the entire house, but rather specific areas where more hot water may be desired quickly such as showers.

Another alternative is to install a solar-powered water heater. This cuts the energy used to heat the water in the containment system.

Green Plumbing Ideas #5: Leak Detection

If you have an unusually high water bill, you may have a plumbing leak and some common areas to look are the toilet and leaky faucets.  Water leak detection can help locate a leak underground or other hard to find leaks. Some plumbers may offer this service, or have a leak detection specialist they work with.
