Benefits to Green Plumbing

When it comes to “greenifying” your home, your plumbing has the most potential. Going green with your plumbing can reduce costs, make your home healthier for you, and it’s better for the environment. Here are some ways you can make your plumbing a little more green:

Green

 

Green remodeling will be an investment. Initially, you will have to spend some green to save some green by going green. However, you won’t be spending more than doing your remodeling in a more conventional way. Your investment is almost guaranteed to end up paying for itself over time.

 

One way to introduce green plumbing to your home to conserve energy is to Install an on-demand hot water circulation pump.

 

This type of pump sends hot water to your fixtures in a matter of seconds. This saves you money in two ways: You won’t lose heat. Hot water usually sits in your pipes when it is not being used. The second way is that you won’t have to run the water until it gets to the desired temperature.

 

A couple of ways to introduce green plumbing to your home for health purposes is to install chlorine filters on your shower head or install a whole house filtration system.

 

Chlorine is absorbed six times faster through the skin than through the digestive system. Due to this, chlorine sensitivity is a real problem for many people. Installing these chlorine filters in your shower heads will reduce chlorine levels significantly.

Installing a home-wide filtration system can eliminate the presence of chemicals and microorganisms in your water. Not only does this mean healthier water for you and your family, but it also means a longer life for your hot water heater and plumbing fixtures that experience high sediment levels in the water supply.

 

One way to go with green plumbing for the environment is to install low-flush toilets.

 

One of the biggest culprits of water waste in your home is your toilet. About 28 gallons of water, per person, per day are used by the toilet. You can reduce that usage with a low-flush toilet to two to five times less water per flush. This of course is dependent on the low flush toilet you choose.
