Plumbing Upgrades - Low Flow Faucets


It is in everyone's best interest to use water efficiently. A simple way to save is to install low-flow showerheads and faucets. Or get a low-flow aerator that fits on the faucet. Showers and faucets together use about 23 percent of the average Canadian home's water, more than toilets or clothes washing.

Low-flow showerheads and faucets are extremely cost effective with prices starting at $10 and upward, and they can reduce your water use by 30 percent to 50 percent. Resulting savings in water use and hot water heating can be $50 to $90 or more a year, just by installing a couple of water-saving fixtures.

Low-flow showerheads typically come in two types: aerating and laminar. Aerating shower heads mix air into the water, while laminar showerheads produce steady streams of water. Some people favor laminar fixtures because aeration makes the water splashy. Laminar showerheads may also be favored in humid areas because they don't create as much steam or moisture.

If you have your home's original showerhead and it was built before 1994, it's a water waster and you should seriously consider replacing it with a newer high efficiency, low flow model. Another determiner is to place a gallon sized bucket under your showerhead and time how long it takes to fill. If under 20 seconds, you are wasting water and money.

For faucets there are low flow models and automatic shut off models that help to further reduce wasted water and minimize your home water bill. Contact Calgary Retrofitters to select inexpensive, energy efficient, low flow faucets and showerheads and reap the benefits of lower water bills and reducing your carbon footprint.
