We all know to cut down on our shower time but what are other ways we can create a more eco-friendly bathroom? Watters Plumbing has created a well-thought-out list of different ways you can create a more sustainable bathroom! Keep reading to learn more and find some inspiration for your home!
Opt For a Low flow Shower Head
While you should always try to reduce your shower time, using a low-flow showerhead can save around 20 percent water compared to traditional showerheads.
Switch to a Low-flow toilet or dual-flush
Same with a low-flow showerhead, low-flow toilets and dual-flush toilets dramatically reduce the amount of water used.

Add bathroom skylight for more natural light
Instead of having your lights on all the time, go for some added natural light with a skylight in your bathroom. Natural light also helps reduce and prevent mildew and mold in your bathroom.
Add energy-efficient lighting
LED light bulbs are a great addition to your bathroom because they are more energy-efficient and last longer than incandescent light bulbs.
Navien Condensing Tankless Water Heater
These water heaters are extremely efficient and eco-friendly while offering extra savings with their precision technology.
Switch out your faucet for motion-sensing or low flow
Motion-sensing faucets are absolute game-changers in your bathroom. This helps conserve water usage without much thought behind using them.
Opt-in for a shower screen
Shower screens are doors on a shower. We suggest swapping for these since PVC shower curtains do nothing good for the environment or you.
Fix leaks and drips when you notice them
Any leaks or drips can add up. If you notice them, fix them right away! Some issues can be easily fixed but if it becomes too complicated, reach out to a professional like Watters Plumbing!
