We are all looking for ways to save money.  However, it is an added bonus if we can both save money and contribute to saving our precious resources, such as water!  There are many available water-saving options for your home.  Looking at our green options, Ardele Warren from Splashes Bath & Kitchen Centres helps to answer your questions.

 

What is the difference between a low-flush and a dual-flush toilet?

 

Firstly, both of these toilets are green and will reduce your water usage.  A dual-flush toilet allow for the choice of 6 litres or 3.4 litres per flush.  This keeps the average of your water usage around 4.7 litres.  Where a low-flow toilet allows for a single flush use of 4.8 litres of water.  Most low-flow toilets are designed to circle the water around the bowl which contributes to a reduction of your cleaning solution use.

 

What other water saving devices are available for my bath & kitchen?

 

There are many choices on the market including low-flow shower heads, adapters for reducing the water flow for your faucets as well as our touch faucets, which allow you turn off the water even when your hands are full. 

 

No matter which solution you choose, you will be making a positive choice towards reducing your water usage and respecting the water sources we have in beautiful British Columbia.
