Interior Water Conservation in Green Building

Saving Water in a Green Home

 

This website is for the climate zone that includes North Central Texas or the DFW area such as Plano, Keller, or Dallas-Fort Worth Texas.  Regardless of your climate zone, the first priority for green building or energy-efficient remodeling is to hire an energy consultant and a green builder who understand and use up-to-date green building practices for your area. 

Conservation is the use of water-saving methods to reduce the amount of water needed for homes, lawns, and other human uses which ultimately increases water supplies for optimum long-term economic and social benefits.

A green home, wherever it is built, always  conserves water.

How?

  • Low water capacity toilets.
  • Flow-restricted shower heads.
  • Faucet aerators.
  • Hot water circulation system.
  • Diverting gray water from bathing, clothes washing, and bathroom lavatories for other suitable purposes.
  • Composting toilets. 

Or maybe just turning the water off when not in use–such as when brushing teeth or washing dishes?
