Green plumbing is eco-friendly plumbing that uses energy-efficient appliances, low flow fixtures, and cost-saving technology that greatly reduces your carbon footprint on the environment.

Even better, green plumbing can lower your monthly utility bill. Plymouth Plumbing & Heating carries low-flow toilets, low-flow showers, Energy Star water heaters and boilers, and everything you need to green your home or business plumbing. For the responsible individual conscious about their environmental impact, green is the way to go. Give us a call today!
Among the most popular green products available on the market for residential and commercial use are:
- Low flow toilets that use only 1.6 gallons of water per flush. This is less than half of what a full flow toilet uses. There are also dual-flush models, which use 1.6 gallons for solid waste, and 1.1 gallons for liquid waste.
- Low flow showers reduce a traditional showerhead’s water usage of 25 gallons by about 50-70%. Steam showers are even greener options. They use only a gallon of water per shower, with the added benefit of leaving you feeling sensuous.
- Tankless water heaters are another eco-friendly option that keeps your energy bills low. They only heat water when it is needed, as opposed to continually filling a reservoir tank.
- Front-loading washing machines use less water per laundry cycle, adding to the green plumbing of your household.
Prices vary depending on the quantity and quality of the green appliance brand. Although upfront costs may be higher than traditional fixtures, green plumbing saves you money in the long run. They are definitely worth the investment. Call the professional technicians at Plymouth Plumbing & Heating today to inspect your home and see if green plumbing is right for you.
Insulating your hot water pipes reduces heat loss and can raise your water temperature from 2°F – 4°F above uninsulated pipes. This allows you to enjoy a lower setting on your water heater. Plus, hotter water is delivered to outlets faster, reducing the amount of time waiting for hot water. This conserves water and saves you money.
- Install water-saving green appliances. Replace traditional fixtures with energy-efficient toilets, faucets, showerheads, and tankless water heaters.
- Check your water pipes. Make sure they are the right size to minimize water leaks. Also ensure they are made of the best material to conduct heat (steel, PEX).
- Insulate hot water piping, especially as it leaves your hot water heater.
- urn off the faucet while brushing your teeth or washing dishes.
- Try to limit the number of times you flush the toilet.
- Avoid taking extra-long showers.
- Avoid over-watering your lawn. Install the right system and timers to conserve energy.
