Over half of the water used in your Kansas City home runs right down the bathroom drains. Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling can remodel your residential bathroom with water conservation in mind, allowing you to use less water for the same daily activities.
You can easily upgrade a few of your bathroom fixtures and cut the amount of water it takes for you to get ready each day by a third or more!
Bathroom Appliances and Fixtures that Conserve Water:
These faucets are designed to reduce the amount of water that is wasted while brushing your teeth or washing your hands or face. Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling can recommend a stylish low-flow faucet that will complement a new bathroom renovation, so you don’t have to sacrifice style for saving the planet!
Simply attaching a faucet aerator (available at your local hardware store for less than $5) can reduce the amount of water your bathroom faucet pours out, and you can probably install it yourself.
If you’re concerned with water conservation (and your energy bills), you probably monitor everyone’s shower length already. Installing a shower head that is designed to conserve water is another great way to watch your water use!
You can choose from low-flow shower heads which use about half the amount of water that regular shower heads do, or you can invest in smart shower heads that can be linked to your smart home technology. These cool gadgets are sensitive to your preferred water temperature, reducing their flow to nearly nothing when your water reaches a pre-determined temperature. You can adjust it back to full flow when you step in.
Using technology like pressure-assist allows newer toilets to be more energy efficient than ever. You may prefer a duel flush or a low flow toilet to accommodate your water saving needs. Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling can recommend the type that is right for you.
Today’s toilets use much less water than ones from just a few years ago. If your toilet is 10 or more years old, it might use as much as 7 gallons of water per flush! Leaks can cause even more water waste, so you definitely need to stay on top of toilet repairs, too!
Maybe you have seen these on social media and thought they were prototypes, too theoretical to be incorporated into your Kansas City bathroom remodeling project. You’ll be delighted to know that these tubs have been on the market for several years, and they are getting more affordable every day!
With a tilting bathtub, you can only use the amount of water you need and create depth in certain areas by changing the tub’s angle. Choose from a foot bath, a half body, or a soaking full-body bath!
Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling is excited to help our customers save money, save water, and save the environment with water-saving appliances and fixtures like these!
