1. Install a PRV (pressure-reducing valve) on main water line. A home's system will work just fine with water pressure in the range of 35-75 psi, while pressure more than 80 psi is too high for most residential codes. We will check water pressure and be surpised how many homes may have excessive water pressure. Install a PRV will lower flow rate and increase the life of plumbing systems aka pipes, faucets, water heaters and valves.
  2. Install performance shower heads. Standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons per minute, and older ones use greater amounts. New shower heads use only 1.75 gpm. That's a saving of tap water, hot water and salt useage in softener. So, with new performance shower head designs with a stronger flow, you would not know the difference. You could be saving water while taking a great shower.
  3. Install an HET ( high efficiency toilet) to conserve. In the United States most toilets are using 3.5 (gpf) gallons per flush as of 1997 a federal law prohited the production of any greater that 1.6 gpf. Replacing a 3.5 gpf toilet with a HET will pay for itself quickly. Best guess usage could save 14,000 gallons per year... Good for saving septic systems, lower water and sewer bills, and water softener salt.
  4. Install a recirculating hot water system. This system works by preventing unheated water from running down the drain while waiting to heat up the water for shave or shower. I enjoy my system because it gives 10 extra minutes of sleep in time in the morning. The shower is preheated before i get up in the morning... love it. This system will save significant amount of water and time for any homeowner.
  5. Install water saving faucets and/or aerators. Reducing water flow from 2.2 gpm to 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm) can save on usage on water and heating water.
  6. By installing new products that use less water, but don't sacrifice performance... help conserve and save on plumbing equipment and uitiity bills...
