An Arizona City Conserves Precious Resource by Using a Water Saving Device
Arizona is no stranger to water awareness. While the air quality is wonderful, annual rainfall hovers around single digits. In June 2000, the city of Sierra Vista, Ariz., instituted a plumbing code mandating all new residential construction have dedicated hot-water return lines installed. Fast-forward to December 2010, when the city changed the code requiring dedicated return lines to include specific standards for on-demand pump systems. Builders and homeowners were still focusing on the lowest initial cost rather than the lifecycle cost to operate a demand pump, but they began to see a monetary savings in both areas when ACT D’MAND Kontrols® pumping systems were installed.
