Some other Green Plumbing initiatives include:
- Re-Circulation Pump: Without a re-circulation pump, hot water is pumped from your hot water tank, through the plumbing pipes and to the specific fixture that is demanding it. Once the fixture is turned off, the water that is inside of the pipes does not return to the tank but, rather sits in the pipes and cools down. The next time you need hot water, you turn on the faucet and wait for the cold water that you don’t need to rinse down the drain. A re-circulation pump helps to make sure that hot water is always available on-demand when the fixture is turned on. These pumps are inexpensive and very compact and take up very little room next to your hot water heater
- Greywater Treatment: Greywater is a term to describe the water that comes from your bathroom sinks, showers, bathtubs, and laundry or garage sink. This water does not ever come from toilets or kitchen sinks. From these sources, the water might contact trace amounts of food, dirt, grease, hair, and certain health and beauty or cleaning products. While this residue might be pollutants if released into lakes, rivers, or creeks, to the plants and lawn in your yard they are valuable sources of fertilizer. Reusing your home’s greywater is not only beneficial to the environment, as it keeps it out of the water treatment systems, it also saves you money on your monthly water bill as you are not using city water for your yard.
