Every building has to plumb and although consumption and requirements may be different, the overall goal of everyone is the conservation of water. It can be called a smart plumbing or green plumbing but whatever the name, the objective is the efficient use of water through resourceful in the enhancement of land including the disposal of wastewater with the use of technology and high-efficiency plumbing design. Environmental friendly plumbing helps meets requirements when applying for certification of your house or building. Even if a person does not intend to apply for certification, there are several important issues that can be resolved through Technological advancement in Plumbing.
Using technology people can effectively reduce potable water thereby reducing consumption pressure on the aquifer system. Smart plumbing enables at least a 20 percent reduction in kitchen and bathroom faucets. Other points can reduce consumption by at least 30 percent by fitting all water points with water restricting aerators. Tremendous amounts of water can also be saved by using ‘drip irrigation’ an innovative irrigation system invented in Israel and now popular in the entire world. This system uses drip hoses and sprinkler systems that have automatic timing and are programmed to turn on or off according to ground soil moisture.
The best part in using technological advancements is that they reduce costs, conserve and also considerably reduce maintenance costs. They also control the dispensation of soap and paper products which are an integral aspect of water usage including reducing the need for a housekeeper who is hired to frequently monitor restrooms to prevent water wastage. Small improvements in the demand for less water, housekeeper monitoring and the reduction in the use of soap and paper products usually result in large savings when calculated at the end of the accounting year. These innovations provide new opportunities to improve service levels and save money.
Technologically advanced touch-less fixtures require less maintenance because they operate with sensors and not with the traditional parts such as shoes, washers, rings and other parts that need constant replacement. Although some new systems sometimes require new and increased maintenance because they have filters that require manual cleaning by plumbers who have to remove the filters for better cleaning. However, the overall benefits far outweigh some disadvantages because these innovative systems are installed and the plumbers are given troubleshooting guides that describe the various methods for effectively using these innovative implements. Surveys of technical training for the new generation restroom systems and fixtures have shown very encouraging results.
