Do you live in Orlando Florida and have an older home? If this is the case you more than likely have low efficient plumbing fixtures. This can cause you to have more expensive water bills and waste water. With the push for being more environmentally friendly or going green many companies that manufacture plumbing fixtures have really come a long way in the last 10 years. For example older homes have toilets that require 3.5 gallons of water to flush them then they came out with 1.5 gallon toilets which save quite a bit of water. However, the early model toilets that flushed 1.5 gallons had poor flushing power and had caused plumbing back ups but with all the technology, they have drastically improved the 1.5 gallon toilets flushing power. They even have came out with a 1.25 gallon toilet that seems to be pretty good. The savings does not stop there and you can upgrade faucets also and really save on your water bill. The only thing that does not seem to work very well is the low consumption shower heads. A lot people complain that there is just not enough pressure and it takes a long time to rinse off. If you want to upgrade your plumbing fixtures to high efficient and save money on your water bill please call your local Orlando plumber at 407-490-1230.
