Water consumption in the kitchen and bathroom is the biggest.

Low-flow showers, showerheads, and toilets, for example, minimise the water consumption in the bathroom. These and other green plumbing devices and methods ensure you seamlessly use less water.
Compared to traditional plumbing, tankless water heaters, for instance, heat water only when necessary. Green plumbing is long-term budget-friendly also because it ensures fewer repairs and replacements. The fact that it aims reduced water flow means less wear and tear of the pipes. This prevents the need for tap and pipe repairs or replacements, which contributes to your future savings, too.

Rainwater Tanks collects the rainwater that falls on the roof, passes the gutters, and reaches the tank through the downpipes. It’s a practical way to harvest rainwater via smart drainage systems. Rainwater helps in watering the garden, water to the toilet, or even clean floors. It’s even drinkable if tests prove that it’s free from pollutants and acid vapours.
Green plumbing provides insulated hot water pipes which prevent the waste of hot water and thus save energy. There are also pipes that improve water pressure and minimise leakage. Efficiency Faucets reduce the amount of water you use at the sinks. They are very effective for decreasing water wastage.
