Save Water, Money And The Planet – Four Efficient Plumbing Fixtures And Gadgets

Conserving our natural resources has not always been the most efficient thing to do: in years past, doing so meant spending far more money on efficient gadgets and products than was generally recouped over a period of months or even years. These days, however, our resources are becoming increasingly scarce and combined with advances in technology, it is now becoming much more cost-efficient to begin making smart investments. In the case of water, a variety of efficient plumbing fixtures have arrived on the market to help consumers accomplish this goal. Below, we’ll be discussing four products that are saving money, water and resources for their owners and for the next generation.

The Delta Single Function Shower Head is an affordable solution ($45) to the age-old problem of wasting water while in the shower. Using just under two gallons per minute, the Delta shower head connects automatically to any 1/2” shower adapter and requires virtually no maintenance due to its clog-proof design. Many people will also love the fact that by using less water per minute, hot water reserves last longer – this makes households where multiple showers in short periods of time are required less frustrated when someone takes a little too long in the shower.
