Water Efficient Faucet Designs To Consider For Your Home

With more and more homeowners becoming eco-conscious and looking or green living solutions for their houses, there has been an upsurge in energy efficient faucet alternatives to help in water conservancy. These new faucet designs are not only aesthetically appealing, but they are highly functional too and can go a long way in reducing your water consumption and subsequent utility costs. Nevertheless, with the myriad of designs available, some homeowners may be confused at what would be best suited to their residence. Read on to find about the various water efficient faucet designs you could consider.

Low flow technology

These types of faucets are designed to minimise the amount of water that is released by your tapware. However, contrary to popular belief, this does not translate into reduced water pressure. Instead, the low flow faucets function to aerate the water supply, which ensures you have sufficient force or the different applications ranging from washing dishes to taking a shower. Since low flow faucets will release less water volume per minute, you end up ensuring significant water conservation in your home.

Self-closing technology

As the name suggests, this type of technology enables your taps to shut off on their own. Your faucets are fitted with spring-loaded technology. Once you turn on the taps, the spring will slowly start to close, causing the tap to shut off after a few seconds automatically. This type of water conservation technology is convenient if you have children as you no longer have to worry about taps being left running accidentally. Additionally, self-closing technology is highly efficient at ensuring people do not use excessive volumes of water when washing their hands.

Metered valves

With this type of faucet, you get the flexibility to regulate the amount of water your household uses. For instance, if you want to ensure that you do not use up a set amount of litres in a day, you set the metred valve to your desired volume of water. When that amount of water is released in the course of the day, the metred valve cut off the water supply automatically. These types of faucets can be a great solution for showers, dishwashing or simply watering your garden. You also have the added flexibility of choosing different volumes of water for the various faucets in your home. For instance, the kitchen can have a different amount of water limit as compared to your showers.
