Water-Efficient Plumbing Fixtures Can Lower Your Water Bill


If you’re looking for ways to increase home efficiency and trim your utility costs, consider the benefits of installing water-efficient plumbing fixtures and systems. These fixtures can substantially cut your water bill while still ensuring you have plenty of water for your household’s cooking, cleaning and bathing needs. Here are some of the water-efficient plumbing fixtures that can work for you.

  • WaterSense plumbing products: When choosing your new water-efficient plumbing fixtures, look for ones that carry the WaterSense label. The WaterSense program, sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, provides education for consumers and certification for plumbing fixtures and equipment. WaterSense-certified fixtures have been tested to be efficient enough to significantly reduce your water usage.
  • Dual-flush toilets: Dual-flush toilets offer two options for flushing, one of which uses less water than the other. The lower-volume water option is used for flushing away liquid waste while the higher-volume option is better for removing solid waste. By properly using a dual-flush toilet, you can decrease your water usage for flushing by as much as 30 percent compared to standard toilets.
  • Low-flow faucets and shower heads: Low-flow faucets and shower heads are designed to limit the amount of water moving through them while still providing plenty of water for the task at hand. In the case of hot water usage, they can also help trim your electricity bills by cutting down on the amount of hot water used for cleaning or bathing. In addition to faucets and shower heads, you can also find low-flow toilets that conserve water.
  • Greywater systems: Greywater systems recycle some household wastewater and use it for toilet flushing and related sanitation purposes. Greywater consists of rainwater, water that was used for laundry or washing, or some types of kitchen water. A greywater system reuses this relatively clean water for sewage removal, letting you use the same volume of water twice.
