Overall Strategies

Water consumption may be reduced by installing or retrofitting fixtures that are more efficient than code. New technology has resulted in reliable low-flow fixtures. However, always ensure the building pressure is adjusted and in compliance with the plumbing fixture manufacturer's recommendations in order for fixtures to work optimally.

Best Practices

  • Install new plumbing fixtures that are durable, effective, and water-efficient.
  • Retrofit existing plumbing fixtures with equipment to maintain functionality but reduce water use.
  • Provide water-efficient showers for staff that bicycle or run to work.
