F.A.Q

1. What is “green plumbing”?

Green plumbing is the practice of environmentally sustainable water saving techniques that use less energy, less water, and less chemicals to produce a healthier environment and promote water conservation.

Water conservation refers to reducing the use of water.

The goals of water conservation efforts include:

  • Sustainability – To ensure water availability for future generations, the withdrawal of fresh water from an ecosystem should not exceed its natural replacement rate.
  • Energy conservation – Water pumping, delivery, and wastewater treatment facilities consume a huge amount of energy.
  • Habitat conservation – Minimizing human water use helps to preserve fresh water habitats for local wildlife and migrating waterfowl, as well as reducing the need to build new dams and other water diversion infrastructure.
Green Plumber Tips

Your water heater is probably set to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. You can reset it lower to 120 degrees and still have all the benefits.

However, your water heating costs will drop by up to 10% and the environment will benefit from lower energy consumption.
