Water Efficient & Green Plumbing

(720) 296-7972
As Denver consumers become more environmentally conscious, they eschew historically wasteful systems for more modern, efficient ones. Plumbing is no different. It is estimated that the newest generation of plumbing could reduce your water usage by 30 percent and stop 91 million tons of carbon monoxide from being released into the atmosphere, annually. Green plumbing utilizes energy saving appliances, low flow fixtures, recycling water and innovative technologies that have less impact on the environment and require less energy for your plumbing to function properly.

Water Audit by Denver’s Premier Green Plumbing Professionals

Old toilets in Denver sometimes used five or six gallons per flush. New toilets under 1.5 gallons per flush, a savings of about 70 percent. This is important because toilets can be accountable for up to 26 percent of total household usage. Laundry can consume 22 percent of home water usage. As worldwide water shortages abound, the price of water rises. Our plumbers in Denver will assess your current usage, then draft up a water efficient plumbing plan that works for your specific needs.

Plumbers Use Chemicals to Reduce Impact on Denver’s Environment

Contrary to popular belief, green plumbing does in fact use chemicals. Newer chemicals used in green plumbing can still get the job done, it just does it with less negative impacts on the Denver environment than traditional chemicals do. They contain more natural ingredients that are also less harsh on pipes and other plumbing parts. Green companies continue to produce products that will clear your pipes and have less of an impact on the environment. There are ways to process wastewater through filtration that further reduce environmental impact.

Water Heaters Impact on a Denver Home’s Water Efficient Plumbing

Older hot water heaters in Denver hold anywhere from 20 to 80 gallons of water in their tanks and always keep that water hot as long as they are working properly. They are also large, and that must be accounted for when you are planning on where to place them. They will provide hot water until the tank runs out and then you must wait. Tankless water heaters are better for water efficient plumbing, continuously putting out hot water, measured in gallons per minute. Our plumbers will assess your family’s needs and suggest the perfect hot water heater to suit those needs.
