Green & Cost Saving Faucets & Toilets
Green choices don’t make just good environmental sense, they deliver cost savings benefits to your family annually. Exact Plumbing installs faucets that marry beauty, function, and reduce water consumption.
Faucets account for more than 15 percent of indoor household water use—more than 1 trillion gallons of water across the United States each year. Water Sense labeled faucets and accessories can reduce a sink’s water flow by 30 percent or more without sacrificing performance. We could save billions of gallons each year by retrofitting the country’s 222 million bathroom sink faucets with models that have earned the Water Sense label.
By installing Water Sense faucets and accessories an average household can save more than 500 gallons each year. Also, since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, households will also save energy.

Water Saving Tips
- Capture running water while waiting for the temperature to change: this excess water can be used to water plants.
- When washing dishes by hand, use as little water as possible. Use only the required amount of dish soap and put the dishes in a rack to rinse them all together and reduce rinse water. Be sure to use short bursts instead of letting the water run when rinsing. When you do use the dishwasher, use appropriate water and energy efficient settings.
- Keep a container of drinking water in the refrigerator. With cold drinking water on hand, you’ll waste less than you would while waiting for the faucet to change temperature for each glass of water.
- Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth, and rinse out the sink when you’re finished.
- Capture shower/bath water while waiting for water to change temperatures: This excess water can be used for watering plants.
- Don’t wait for the water to get hot before filling the tub for a bath. Put in the plug and adjust the water temperature as the tub fills.
Even though 70% of our planet’s surface is covered by water, but less than 1% is suitable for consumption. With our population continuing to rise, it is critical that we get smarter about how we use our supply of potable water. The good news, we all can make a difference just by making a few small changes to our daily habits.
