Water Conservation Call Preferrred Plumbing

Water conservation refers to reducing the usage of water and recycling of waste water for different purposes like cleaning, manufacturing , agriculture etc. Home Water-saving technology for the home includes:

* Low-flow shower heads (sometimes called energy-efficient shower heads as they also use less energy, due to less water being heated).
* Low-flush toilets, composting toilets and waterless urinals, have a dramatic impact in the developed world, as conventional Western toilets use large volumes of water.Even saline water (sea water) can be used for flushing.
* Faucet aerators, which break water flow into fine droplets to maintain "wetting effectiveness" while using less water. As a bonus, they reduce splashing while washing hands and dishes.
* Wastewater reuse or recycling systems, allowing:
* Reuse of graywater for flushing toilets or for the garden, and
* Recycling of wastewater through purification at a water treatment plant.
* Waterless car wash
* Rainwater harvesting
* Infrared or foot operated faucets can save water by using short bursts of water for rinsing in the kitchen or bathroom

Also lessening one's shower hours, the rainwater collected can be also used in flowering plants and trees. ~ wikipedia
