Eco-Friendly Bathroom Installations

Here are some pointers on how to create an eco-friendly bathroom space.

1. Low-Flow Toilets

Modern low-flow toilets can save you a significant amount of water annually, which also helps reduce your water bills. Most people aren’t aware that toilets are high water consumption features and account for almost 30% of the overall water usage in your home. It means they use far more than dishwashers and washing machines.

Older toilets can use up to 26 litres of water, which is a massive waste. In comparison, low flow toilet models come with two different flush settings. The first is for liquid waste flushes and use only approximately three litres of water. The solid waste flush setting uses around 6 litres of water, which is significantly less than conventional systems. It means you save a considerable amount of water in every flush.

2. Low-Flow Showerheads

The best way to save water is to spend less time showering. But sometimes, we like to take a relaxing shower at the end of a tiring day. The one way to have your cake and eat it too is to install an energy-efficient, low flow shower. These installations use only about 9.5 litres of water per minute compared to the 18-30 litres of water that standard showerheads use.

When you install these modern water-efficient features, you save a significant amount of water every single day. If you install these in every bathroom in your house, that can mean even more water and energy savings because you need less energy to heat that water.

The other features you can install are motion-sensing faucets as well as a thermostat for your hot water system. These can save you energy, water, and money in the long term.

Toilets tend to spring leaks often as well. The multiple moving parts in toilets are prone to deterioration and wear because these installations are used daily. If the cistern valve wears out or gives up, there will be a leak in your toilet.

Reasons Why Toilets Get Blocked

  • A toilet is a very intricate fixture that is designed to eliminate liquid and solid waste from the receptacle. While all of the toilet paper and normal waste make a trash route pretty easily, certain things like feminine hygiene products, cloth, plastic, paper towels at 17 will not get flushed down easily. If you continue with this practice, ultimately the toilet will give up.
  • Every toilet has an S-trap which is connected to the main drainage system. It is a very important part of the toilet mechanism and ensures that the appropriate water level is maintained in the toilet bowl.  If there is a build-up of many different items in this as trap area, the system will become clogged.
  • If you have hard water on your property, it can leave behind deposits inside the toilet bowl. If these deposits are not cleaned out with regularity, they can result in blockages. If you opt for regular plumbing maintenance, the plumbing professionals make sure that they remove the residue from the toilet bowl. This helps prevent blockages due to hard water
