Low flow doesn’t have to mean no flow. Low flow fixtures such as shower heads and toilets are readily available to significantly reduce household water use. A good quality fixture can be an excellent addition to a home – especially in municipalities such as West Vancouver who have water metering.
Another easy way to reduce water consumption is by installing aerators on your existing faucets. This simple installation can save up save up to 40% of the water used for hand washing. Not all aerators are low flow, and technology means that the efficiencies are continually improving.
