Water Conservation FAQ
Helping the environment shouldn’t be confusing. Here is a quick list of frequently asked questions about water conservation and how We Care can help you save water and money.
1. What products does We Care offer for water conservation?
Along with accessories such as shower heads and faucets, We Care offers energy efficient water heaters, reduced water use toilets, and hot water delivery systems. We Care also carries Watersense products. Watersense is a program run by the Environmental Protection Agency, dedicated to water conservation. Watersense partners with manufacturers to mark products that meet the EPA’s standard for water efficiency with the Watersense label.
2. Why would I need to replace my toilet?
Most toilet replacements are done because the homeowner wishes for a more water efficient toilet. Toilets installed before 1982 use between 5 and 7 gallons of water per flush! Now, toilets are designed to use between 1.6 and 2.2 gallons. Think of all of the water and money you can save by installing a new toilet!
3. What is a hot water delivery system?
The typical American home wastes 3,650 gallons of water per year waiting for hot water to come out of their faucets. A hot water delivery system curbs this loss and delivers hot water much faster. If you are tired of wasting water and waiting around for your shower to get warm, a hot water delivery system may be the best choice for you.
4. What are some easy, less intrusive ways to start conserving water through We Care?
We Care will happily install water efficient shower heads and aerated faucets in your home. Installing these items doesn’t take much time and can save you lots of water (and, as a result, lots of money).
5. Do I HAVE to replace something to help conserve water?
Not at all! As long as you are getting your plumbing systems checked yearly by We Care and having We Care immediately repair any leaks or plumbing problems that come up, you are already conserving water. We Care and manufacturers both highly recommend that you get your plumbing systems maintained annually to ensure maximum efficiency and repair any minor damage incurred by normal wear and tear. We Care offers a maintenance plan that is cost effective and ensures you have top quality service, year-round, for a fraction of the price.
