Clayton Bathroom Remodeling Contractors

One of the best ways to make your home a more environmentally friendly living space is to conserve water, and more and more homeowners across the nation are becoming considered with how wasting water can effect them and their neighbors.

In the United States, we waste around 1 trillion gallons of water every year, which is about equal to the capacity of Florida’s Lake Okeechobee. A problem as seemingly small as a leaking faucet in your home could easily waste 10,000 gallons of water per year.

At Mason Construction Company, Inc., our Clayton bathroom remodeling contractors can help you make sure that you create the greenest bathroom possible with your next remodeling project by helping you select great water conserving fixtures for your bathroom.

Here are some of the best fixtures to have installed during your next bathroom remodeling project:

High-Efficiency Toilets

Toilets use—and waste—more water than most other fixtures in many homes. In the average home, they account for around 30% of indoor water consumption. Most toilets that were installed before the 1990s use more than 3.5 gallons per flush, but these can be replaced with alternatives that are much more efficient and just as effective:

  • Low Flush Toilets

Many homeowners in the U.S. started to use low-flush toilets in the 1990s in response to concerns over water conservation. These toilets use 1.6 gallons or less per flush, so they can help you save a tremendous amount of water in your Clayton home.

  • Dual Flush Toilets

Dual flush toilets have a low-flush button for liquid waste, and a higher flush button for solid waste. These toilets are very common in Australia and Europe, and they’re becoming much more popular in the U.S.

Water-Efficient Shower Heads

According to the Environmental Protection Association, the average family uses around 40 gallons per day just showering. But water-efficient shower heads can significantly reduce that amount.

With water-efficient shower heads, you’ll be able to save:

  • 13 days of energy to power your home per year
  • 2,900 gallons of water per year
  • $70 per year

Call out professional remodeling contractors today to have your shower heads retrofitted and start saving.

Faucets

Water-efficient faucets use a maximum of 1.5 gallons per minute. This is 30% lower than the average sink’s water flow, but the performance of the faucets won’t be affected. Retrofitting bathroom sink faucets with models approved by the EPA can help save billions of gallons of water nationwide every year.
