Bathroom Remodel Sacramento – Water Conservation Essentials

March 14, 2012

When you read about drought warnings and water conservation calls throughout California, you begin to understand why a lot of households today have made the decision to do bathroom remodel Sacramento projects in their homes.

Water Conservation

The bathroom is one of the most wasteful areas in terms of water use.

Estimates by the Environmental Protection Agency suggest that the water you waste while inside the bathroom typically accounts for 30 percent of your bill. The percentage excludes your water consumption when you open faucets or take your shower.

Even though drought and water shortage problems are not as pronounced in Sacramento, it doesn’t hurt to make conservation a habit.

By remodeling your old bathroom, you can trim your water consumption and do your part to ensure that there will be enough water to go around for the rest of the state.

Remodeling Ideas

1. Check for leaky faucets and faulty plumbing. Let the professionals step in to fix leaks. Better yet, consider replacing your faucets.

2. Check for leaking toilets and consider getting an upgrade. High-efficiency toilets use 20 percent less water than the conventional counterpart to flush waste.

3. Invest in a waterless urinal. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, urinals allow you to save more than 3,000 gallons of water each month over traditional flush-type toilet. The urinal is a must-have for homes with many male members.

4. Switch to a smaller tub. Bigger tubs require more water to fill. Besides, if you have a smaller bathtub installed, you are also able to create more bathroom space.

5. Consider small and movable shower heads. Not only are they convenient and friendly for members with disability, the size of the shower heads also allow less water to be wasted.

Many home improvement companies can bathroom remodel Sacramento properties to promote water conservation. Many more can remodel bathrooms to save energy. All you need to do is ask for smart essentials.
