Modern plumbing should be environmentally friendly and energy-use conscious. It is not as simple as it used to be, but we are better for it. Plumbers and planners of plumbing projects should use their consciences as well as their design sense when making choices for renovations or new installations. We should insist that the systems we install now look good and work well, but are energy saving and low-impact environmentally.
We have made some real advances in the area of waste removal, and there are some options to consider when choosing waste removal systems. There was a time when low water use toilets didn’t work very well. The newer ones are better, and really save a lot of water. You can get them now that offer a choice, called dual-flush toilets, that give you the option to decide if you really, really, ought to consider using the serious flush lever. New technology has improved the low water use showers and sink faucets. They actually work too. You can get wet and clean while using less water to do it. We still need to wash, but we can wash with less waste of water and energy. Modern plumbing contractors are up-to-date on these developments, and can help you plan you next plumbing project to include energy saving environmentally friendly plumbing installations.
