Conserving Water and Money with Eco-Friendly Plumbing Fixtures

As a society, we’ve come a long way technologically. But sometimes, having more luxuries, options, and opportunities can take a toll when they use up natural resources.

Water is one of these natural resources. Though sometimes it seems to exist in rich abundance, our access to clear, clean, and filtered water is a privilege that we often take for granted. Like many, we feel it our responsibility to do all in our power to make the most of what we have and find ways to be eco-efficient in our consumption of this precious commodity. Conserving water starts by making small changes to our daily habits and lifestyles. For example, we can turn the water off while we brush our teeth and take shorter showers. But water conservation doesn’t stop there—with the right plumbing fixtures, you can significantly decrease the amount of water your household uses each month—saving the world water and yourself some extra cash.

When you involve your Calgary plumber in the changes you make to your home and plumbing fixtures, you can take advantage of his knowledge of smart, eco-savvy fixtures. With a slew of products under their belts and the experience needed to install them, our plumbers are ready to help you optimize your water usage and decrease the amount you spend on paying for it.

Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorites and explained how they work to conserve water.

Water Efficient Bathtubs — Certain ergonomic bathtub designs make it possible for you to enjoy the same relaxing bubble bath-- using fewer litres of water.

Low-Flow Toilets and Shower Heads — As the name suggests, these fixtures produce a low flow of water—using a fraction of the water that normal toilets and shower heads do.
