6 Simple Plumbing Tips to Go Green!


Green Plumbing Tips for Water and Energy Conservation

The United States has a high per capita water usage rate but lags behind other countries in energy and water conservation. In this blog, we, My Georgia Plumber, present surefire green plumbing tips to help you conserve water, save energy, and contribute to a sustainable future.

Hot Water Recirculating System

  • Installing a Recirculating Pump and Recirculating Systems provides instant hot water and saves thousands of gallons of water.
  • A family of 4 can save up to 36,000 gallons of water per year with this system.

Repair Leaky Faucets and Toilets

  • Promptly address leaky faucets and pipes to prevent water waste.
  • Leaky faucets can waste up to 100 gallons of water every week.

Install a New Low-Flow Toilet

  • New toilets use a maximum of 1.6 gallons per flush, while older models consume up to 6 gallons.
  • Toilets account for nearly 26% of a household’s annual water usage.
  • Switching to a low-water consumption toilet benefits the environment and saves money.

Install Low-Flow Shower Heads and Faucets

  • Older showerheads and faucets consume more water than newer, low-flow models.
  • Upgrading to low-flow fixtures conserves water and increases the value of your home.

Adjust or Replace Your Pressure Regulating Valve (PRV)

  • High water pressure can lead to leaking faucets and running toilets.
  • If your water pressure exceeds 75psi, your PRV may need replacement.
  • The PRV regulates water pressure in your home.

Water at Night

  • Watering your lawn thoroughly in the evening after sunset is more effective than daily watering for shorter periods.
  • This method reduces water evaporation and promotes healthy plant growth.
