Eco Tips: Eco-friendly Plumbing

Changing your plumbing practices to be more eco-friendly is quick and simple, you can even do it yourself. Keep reading for tips on how to go green with plumbing.

  1. Green your flushing habits. The latest technology in toilets can make flushing more eco-friendly by reducing your water consumption. A great option to change to is the dual-flush toilet, which has buttons/levers for a long or short flush. The dual-flush is well suited to any budget.
  2. Upgrade your faucets to be efficient. Replace your taps with faucets that incorporate restrictors, low-flow and adjustable-stream showerheads. They will help reduce water usage and wastage.
  3. Investing in eco-friendly household appliances i.e. washing machine and dishwasher, will help conserve water and lower household costs.
  4. Keeping your garden lush and green doesn’t mean you can’t be water friendly. Using drip irrigation or new technology such as weather or sensor based irrigation control can help cut water usage by up to 70%.
