Dispelling the Myths about Low-Flow Plumbing Fixtures in Reading & the North Shore, MA
Low-flow toilets and showerheads can conserve water in Reading and the North Shore, but only if residents choose to install them. Unfortunately, these low-flow plumbing fixtures have developed a bit of a bad rap due to a lot of misinformation floating around. At Waldman Plumbing, we’d like to open the door to more of these high-efficiency plumbing fixtures by dispelling some of the myths, because when we conserve water, we help the environment!
The Low-Flow Toilet: Past & Present
Most of the misinformation about low-flow toilets stems from the first-generation low-flow toilets that were available back in the early 1990s. The technology was limited and therefore these toilets had some flaws. They were prone to clogging, required more frequent cleaning, and often needed to be flushed more than once to remove all the waste. But, in 2015, these problems are things of the past. The low-flow toilets that your local plumber can install have advanced technology that makes them far superior to those first-generation low-flow toilets. They do their job quite well in fact, while conserving water with every flush!
The Low-Flow Showerhead: The Trickle Myth
The primary reason that people are reluctant to purchase a low-flow showerhead is because they believe the water that comes out of it will be an inadequate, unpleasant trickle that will ruin their showering experience. This is not the case! A low-flow showerhead will have no adverse effect on your shower water pressure. You’ll still get full water coverage and a strong spray—the only difference is that you’ll use about half the amount of water each time you shower!
