If you’re conscious about spending money, one of the most haunting feelings can come from thinking about the costs you aren’t aware of on a daily basis. Low-flow plumbing is a great way to put your mind at ease. We waste a lot of money when we use the bathroom. Whether it be flushing several unnecessary gallons away on the toilet or letting it run down the drain in the shower. Let’s take a look at how you can save some money in the bathroom.
Low-flow toilets can save Americans $90 a year and over $2000 over the life of the toilet. This is due, in large part, to the fact that these toilets use much less water than their larger counterparts. Depending on the year your toilet was made, it may waste up to 7 gallons of water per flush. Low-flow toilets, on the other hand, use around 1.6 gallons per flush. This means more money in your wallet and more water saved.
Low-flow showers also present an opportunity to save money in the bathroom. These showers save about 1700 gallons of water per person each year. That’s a water savings of between 25-60%! Choosing an energy efficient water heater is another way to save. Hot water can account for as much as 10% of your energy bill. Installing heat traps around your water heater or choosing an energy-efficient water heater can save you money each month. You can personally supplement these savings by taking shorter, lower temperature showers.
