Improving The Quality Of Your Plumbing Fixtures
Some states of the US are now implanting some
laws and regulations, so that plumbing fixtures can have better quality and
serve their purpose as they should.
Colorado is one of the states that are working towards having better
standards by 2016 and it is only a matter of time until this becomes a common
practice in other places of the country.
The plumbing industry, is always trying to
provide higher quality services and products to their customers and by the time
that these standards become a law, most plumbers have already made those
practices a habit and have no problem meeting the state’s demands.
An example of such laws is Senate Bill 14-103,
which prohibits the sale of plumbing fixtures that are not based on the federal
Water Sense standards. Water Sense
certification, is about using less water, without losing any of the performance
and benefits. Toilets are now using at
least 1.2 gallons of water less per flush, than they used to and this is why
these sorts of bills and laws, are necessary these days.
This bill was just recently passed and it is
still under review by some legislators and the policy team. Some stores in different communities are
already selling some of the products that are recommended by this bill and they
say that people actually like them. “There are people who are actually looking for
this stuff. I don’t know that they need
rules to convince them of that,” said Spencer William, who is one of these
plumbing stores managers.
Overall, these requirements and laws help to
protect our environment by saving some water, they help to build better
communities, they bring higher quality products for consumers and they also
promote the plumbing industry. If we all
help to promote these kinds of laws, it will be simple for our politicians to
make a decision about them and it will also benefit everyone in the long
It is always important to choose high quality
plumbing fixtures, because they can really make a difference in your home and
the world. Don’t forget to read some of
