As residential and commercial plumbing service providers, our Monterey Park plumbing experts do it all including services involving water conservation. Just because we live in an area that has a huge water table doesn't mean we shouldn't be thinking about conserving. Our philosophy is that no matter where we are, we need to focus on conservation. This is why we have spent a great deal of time studying the newest technology so we can help our residential and commercial clients conserve, re-circulate and expand their use of water resources. Our current clients are trying to conserve water for their gardening and household needs and also for commercial service needs. Our expert technicians are equipped with the knowledge to install, repair or replace water conservation systems.
Specifically, within the home we can install faucets and water release systems that help to conserve water within the bathroom, kitchen and garden. These systems will give homeowners the control to utilize more or less water as it is needed. Commercially, we can also install faucets, pipes and drains that conserve water during the production process and during landscaping watering times. We can also combine a complete water treatment system and water conservation system for optimum usage within commercial and residential settings.
Retro-fitting your home or business can result in lower water and sewage bills and help conserve the water that is available to our community. Our Monterey Park plumbers remind you that the appliances and fixtures in your home were manufactured before 1994, they are probably not very efficient. In 1994 The National Energy Protection Act (NEPA) mandated the use of water-saving plumbing fixtures. This means that your fixtures may be extremely inefficient.
Let's start by looking at your toilet. If you have an older model of toilet that uses 3 to 5 gallons of water per flush, you can cut this usage in half by retro-fitting to a low flush variety that uses 1.5 gallons or less per flush. Because you pay, not only for the water that you flush down the toilet, but the water to fill the reservoir, you are actually saving on both your water bill and sewage bill. By saving 1.5 gallons per flush, you are paying 1.5 gallons less on both bills.
Changing out a standard shower head for a low flow variety can save between 40% and 80% of water usage during a shower. An old shower head could use between 5 and 10 gallons of water per minute where the newest low flow shower heads can use as little as 2 gallons per minute.
Faucets can also be retrofit with the simple addition of an aerator at the end of the nozzle. Bathroom faucets can be reduced from 3 gallons per minute in flow to roughly 1/3 of that, 1 gallon per minute. Kitchen faucets can be reduced by half, to about 1.5 gallons per minute.
By retro-fitting your home or business our Monterey Park plumbing service suggests it could be possible to cut your water usage by 50% or more. The effect on your bottom line could be substantial.
