When you consider bathroom remodeling ideas these days, you need to consider water conservation, especially if you live in Santa Clara county, where droughts are likely to be a way of life from now on.
This is especially timely now that Governor Brown declared a drought emergency the other day and this drought is expected to be worse than that of the 1970’s.
When you are searching for water appliances (shower heads, faucets, toilets, etc) you should look for devices that use less water.
However, you want to strike the right balance between the device using less water and the device working effectively. What’s the use of a low flow toilet if you have to flush it twice?
The EPA has created the WaterSense label which helpos you determine if a certain device is a low flow device. By limiting your selection of fixtures to WaterSense labeled devices, you will satisfy the first criteria.
Then, once you’ve identified a device you think will work for you, check consumer report reviews to see how customers feel about it.
If the general consensus is it’s a good device, you’re good. If on the other hand complaints far outnumber positive reviews, move on to the next one.
This two step process will ensure you keep your water bill down, and have faucets, shower heads, toilets, etc, that deliver enough water pressure to get the job done.
