A-PLUMBING IS GOING GREEN…COME ALONG WITH US!
Any fixture that uses less water, not only helps save a precious resource, it also keeps more money in your pocket.
Here in Texas, we treat our water as a precious and limited resource. WATER CONSERVATION EFFORTS have had a positive impact and plumbing is one of the top 10 items on the list that helps reduce water wastage. Fixing leaks, watering for shorter period of time, and conserving in our households and businessmen is the new norm. Here is a short list of some of the items that may be “water-wasters” in your home or on your property….and we hope that you will adopt the “Going Green” philosophy in all that you do!
Repair a leaky or dripping faucet which can waste several gallons of water per day.
Invest in a new faucet. We carry and/or install water-saving kitchen & bathroom faucets with low-flow aerators (these are the small devices that have a screen in them and are mounted to the end of your faucet). A typical low-flow aerator can save up to 50% of the water used by a regular aerator faucet.
Note: Some brands/types of faucets can be retrofitted with new, low-flow aerators, thereby reducing water usage, saving money, and reusing a perfectly good fixture.
Repair a leaky tub spout or dripping shower head that can waste many gallons of water per day, which could add up to hundreds of gallons per month. Invest in a new shower head. We carry and/or install water saving shower heads, which can save up to 2 gallons of water per minute (that’s over 100 gallons a day for the average family) without sacrificing full spray action at low or high water pressures.
Conserve energy by checking the temperature setting on your water heater. It should not be above 120°F or medium setting on older models. Traditional (Gas or Electric) Water Heaters: over the last ten years, new innovations have greatly improved their energy efficiency, making them a true Green alternative to older models.
We carry and/or install the highest quality water heaters from Bradford White Corp®.
Pay attention to Early Warning Signs of Trouble to prevent the unexpected cold shower, such as leaks, discolored/rusty-looking water, and unusual sounds coming from the unit. If you notice any of these issues, call A-Plumbing and we will be on the way in no time to restore you home’s hot water.
Tankless Water Heaters: upgrade to today’s’ leading technology. They heat water directly, which gives you a quick and constant supply of hot water. It reduces your energy costs because there is no more need to heat water in a storage tank, over and over again, all day and all night – even when your family is not using hot water. The typical family will save more than $100 per year. In addition, they are compact enough to attach to the wall which frees up valuable space in your home.
Account for an average of 33% of the water we use in our homes.
Call us to install a new toilet flapper and fill valve in order to keep your toilet running efficiently.
Invest in the environment and replace your old toilets . With the savings on your water bills, a water saving toilet will soon pay for itself. They use only 1.28 gallons per flush (GPF), as compared to older models which consume 1.6 GPF.
Dual Flush Toilets allow you to use a smaller flush for liquid waste and a larger flush only when needed. The potential savings is thousands of gallons of water per year. We can provide and/or install these state of the art Dual Flush toilets. In addition, we can retrofit almost any traditional toilet to convert it into a Dual Flush toilet.
A-Plumbing uses & recommends Bio-Clean® ,an environmentally safe product. Bio-Clean® is a blend of natural bacteria and enzymes that attack organic waste (food, grease, hair, etc.) safely and effectively. It can treat septic tanks and unclog drains. It is non-poisonous and non-caustic. It is NOT dangerous to children, pets, plumbing, or the environment. It is so safe you can eat it. (We wouldn’t recommend trying that with Liquid-Plumr® or Drano®!)
WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS:
Improve your water quality with a single-source filter mounted to your faucet or a free-standing, whole-house system.
One unit purifies enough water to fill 3,200 plastic water bottles per year. These systems reduce the number of plastic water bottles that end up in landfills or the ocean (currently 38 billion annually) They reduce the nation’s dependence on crude oil which is used to manufacture plastic water bottles (17 million barrels of oil used to meet America’s annual demand).
A-Plumbing disassembles and recycles ALL of the copper, brass, aluminum, and steel components in the old fixtures we remove. These metals can then be melted down to create brand new faucets, shower heads, pipes, and other plumbing fixtures. This process keeps valuable resources from being wasted in landfills or sent overseas to foreign nations. Many components in the new plumbing fixtures we carry are made utilizing recycled (not reused) materials, thus completing the cycle.
