Water-Saving Faucets Are A Cost-Effective Plumbing Upgrade

Nov 20, 2012

You use water everyday. A lot of it. Whether it’s for drinking, taking showers, washing dishes, doing laundry or flushing the toilet, you will always need to use water in your Orlando, Florida home. This constant water use leads to high water bills. You’re probably aware of a few ways to save water, which saves you a little bit on water costs and helps the environment, including turning off the faucet when you’re brushing your teeth and taking shorter showers. But did you know you know that you can install and use a water-saving faucet to conserve water and money, as well? 

Why purchase a water-saving faucet?

Investing in a water-saving faucet not only cuts your water bills down, it also benefits the environment enormously. Did you know that the water you use from your faucets accounts for more than 15 percent of your yearly indoor water use? In fact, just turning off the faucet while you brush your teeth can save as much as 3,000 gallons a year. And by installing and using a water-saving faucet, you can conserve even more.

In order to buy the most efficient water faucet available, you will want to look for the WaterSense Label, which guarantees that the faucet is not only efficient but that it also performs well. A WaterSense water faucet can cut the water flow of a sink by 30 percent, without decreasing its performance. By installing WaterSense approved faucets, your home can save more than 500 gallons of water annually.
