Being environmentally conscious is incredibly important to us at Brown and Son Plumbing. We make sure to do our bit for the environment whenever we can. Below are a few things you can implement around the house to make your plumbing more efficient and better for the environment.
Make your Plumbing Greener
Dual Flush Toilets
A conventional toilet uses 9 to 12 litres of water per flush. With a dual flush system, only 3 litres of water is used per half flush and 4.5 litres per full flush - saving you up to 9 litres of water every time you flush.
Rain Water Tanks
Install a rain water tank to take advantage of natural rain water which can be used to water you garden in dry weather. Installing a water pump to pump water to plumbing fixtures in the home can aid in water conservation.
An average tap uses 15 to 18 litres of water per minute whereas a low-flow tap uses only 3 litres per minute. By changing your taps you can save thousands of litres of water per year (as well as saving on your water bill).
Solar Hot Water Systems
Utilise the sun's clean energy to heat your water rather than relying on electricity - this will reduce fossil fuels being released into the environment when electricity is generated.
