The familiar blue and green “water drop” logo on WaterSense Products is seen on more and more items these days, whether it be shower heads, faucets, toilets, or a variety of other products. Although associated by many with being environmentally sound and appearing on products that will help to conserve water, the Raleigh NC green plumbing experts, Poole’s Plumbing offer you up an in-depth look at the savings and conservation that can be had by seeking out Water Sense Products.

Water Sense Products

According to the official website of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), WaterSense is “a partnership program which seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services.”

In an effort to protect the water supply through conservation efforts, the driving idea behind WaterSense Products is to promote the value of water efficiency, while providing simple methods for saving water as they encourage the company’s manufacturing different products that will bear their label to explore innovative ways that their item can save and conserve. As a result of this innovative manufacturing, the end result is that WaterSense Products will not only decrease your water usage, but also reduce unnecessary strain on infrastructure of these products and resources.

Water Sense Products

This EPA programs encouragement to provide a more efficient product alone does not result in the label going on WaterSense Products, as those adorning the “blue and green droplet” must first be certified as performing at least 20 percent more efficiently without compromising the performance expectations.

The Raleigh NC green plumbing experts at Poole’s Plumbing not only have Green Certification, but they can help to steer you in the right direction to make the right choices to fit your family’s specific needs when it comes to choosing and installing the right WaterSense Products. By upgrading to these more efficient items, you will not only save, but you also are helping to save and conserve billions of gallons of water in the United States every single year.

In the final article of our three part series aimed at helping you cut back both on costly water bills and on being wasteful around the house, the Raleigh NC professional plumbers at Poole’s Plumbing will take you straight to the washing machine and give you a few pointers as a part of our Laundry Room Water Conservation Tips.

Laundry Room Water Conservation Tips

Much as with the initial two articles in this series which covered conserving in both the kitchen and the bathroom, our Laundry Room Water Conservation Tips more than anything are simply a matter of staying on top of how your appliances work and operate as well as being conscious of the amount of water being used in your household and limiting that amount to what is needed.

To begin with, running your washing machine only when it is full rather than washing smaller loads can save the average family from wasting about 1,000 gallons of water per month. Likewise, being aware and keeping an eye on the size of load that you are washing and matching your water level to that load is another way that you can save.

In actuality, you can start acting on these Laundry Room Water Conservation Tips before you even set foot back in your home when buying your washing machine. By thinking of the best ways to save and conserve water when shopping for a new appliance, checking for a model that has a variety of load size and water cycle adjustments will allow you to better monitor your water usage when doing a wash. Also, with the innovative new technology always being applied to make products more green compliant, purchasing a water saving washing mating for example one with the Water Sense label to be sure your new appliance is high efficiency.

These easy-to-do Laundry Room Water Conservation Tips provided by the most trusted name in Raleigh NC plumbers, Poole’s Plumbing are simple ways to be mindful of the amount of water usage going on under your roof on a daily basis.
