Water Conservation

Toilet flush ratings are no laughing matter. You want a toilet with a good MaP rating, is energy-efficient, and flushes (your business) like nobody's business!


My old toilet is like new and it's smarter, too. See how I installed a dual flush converter kit, a standard flush valve, and a new fill valve.

Replace old showerheads with WaterSense showerheads to save money... and water. Here's what you need to know before buying a water saving shower head.

Lots of information on WaterSense labeled high-efficient toilets (HET's). Performance is much improved over the early HET's. There are also many more brands, styles and models of HET's to choose from than ever before. Get out the checkbook! It's time to save some water...and eventually recoup the expense and labor of the new toilet over the old one.
