How To Reduce Water Consumption

Posted on: June 6th, 2011 by zach

What should I know about water conservation shower-heads?

Low-flow shower-heads are very economical and efficient. They can reduce your water consumption without any noticeable difference when you take a shower. They are often classified as shower-heads with a consumption rate of 0.5 to 2 gallons of water per minute.

Older high-flow or unrestricted shower heads in systems with more typical 50psi water mains pressure can flow over 4 gallons per minute. A five minute shower would use 20 gallons of water with an older unrestricted shower head, although it could be more.

The low-flow shower-heads are ideal to have nowadays as we are trying our very best to tighten our belts but not all of them are the same. Some are better than others so give us a call to get some professional advice. – Richmond Heating
