The value of water
What was once a “cause” for impassioned environmentalists, water conservation is now deemed a common sense requirement for anyone with a brain. Individual efforts of homeowners and businesses, while seemingly small, quickly accumulate saving millions of gallons of precious water. This puts less stress on our aquifers and surface water sources which are the primary sources for community water in nearly all areas of the United States. Some major cities located on rivers treat the river water for their needs and Kentucky, due to its geography, achieves 80 percent of its water from surface water such as creeks, streams, rivers and lakes.
If part of your daily routine is to turn on the hot water and run it for a couple of minutes to finally get your desired hot water there is an easily-installed plumbing “fix” that not only gets you hot water in a few seconds, but saves 7,000 to 10,000 gallons of water per year per household. And that amount of saved water not only helps our aquifers, it saves you considerable costs associated with water, sewage processing and energy costs. It is the environmentally friendly ACT D’MAND Kontrols® pumping system. The return on investment (ROI) is a couple of years and only costs $1 per year to operate.
