Every time you flush a traditional toilet, you use about 3.5 gallons to drain and refill it. We stock and install low-flow toilets from various manufacturers that use about half of amount. Over the course of time, the amount of water savings (and cost savings) can be staggering. We have seen the market explode and we know how each of the products perform in the field so we can help you choose the right one for your home or business.
Tankless Water Heaters
You can only wonder why we haven’t installed these sooner after learning about on-demand water heaters. The units heat water only as it is needed by passing it through heating elements located in proximity to the sink or bathtub. The system eliminates the need for a big tank of water that constantly needs to be heated to insure availability.
When purchasing one for your home, size, fuel type, energy efficiency, and costs are all factors that need to be considered. We have the expertise to take your situational need into account when recommending a system for you home. Give us a call today for more details.
