Roto-Rooter Atlanta Comments on Eco-Friendly Plumbing Solutions for Businesses

With Greater Public Attention on Water Conservation, Many Professionals Question Whether or Not "Green Code" Stipulations Should Become Public Policy; Roto-Rooter Atlanta Encourages All Concerned Citizens to Become Aware of These Measures Through Its ROTOGreen Program

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Dec 10, 2012) - According to Roto-Rooter Atlanta, water conservation is an incredibly important part of the "green movement" that continues to pervade public perception and strives to improve the environment. The company addresses these modern concerns with practical resolutions through its ROTOGreen program -- a segment of the business that strives to inform and deliver quality eco-friendly solutions to homes and businesses across the country. Although many businesses have opted to adopt water conservation efforts as determined by U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program, a recent article from Plumbing & Mechanical Magazine raises the question on whether these eco-friendly measures should become part of public policy or remain part of the IAPMO Green Plumbing and Mechanical Supplement, also known as the Green Code.

According to the article, there are many ways businesses can pursue water conservation plumbing, including the installation of low-flow toilets and urinals, dual-flush toilet devices and water-saving faucets. Although some businesses may argue that they use older, less eco-friendly models, as part of an effort to save their consumers money, the article's author refutes, "In the long run, [these businesses] are costing [their] customer money every month with higher water bills." The article backs up these claims by noting that dual-flush and low-flow toilets can save property owners about 30 percent in water use; a considerable reduction in waste and cost.

Taking these figures to mind, the article's author remains a proponent of green public policy measures. Roto-Rooter Atlanta explains that this article raises good points that should be investigated by all members of the public, so that businesses and homeowners can continue to make the right decisions that impact the environment. Roto-Rooter Atlanta works to inform consumers about the importance of conserving water and how new water heater and toilet models can provide both energy and water savings each month.

In a recent press statement, Roto-Rooter Atlanta concludes, "Local businesses who research their plumbing options should take note that greener solutions can not only help consumers save money, but also help the company itself reduce expenses. Roto-Rooter provides experienced and licensed plumbing technicians that can determine ways to improve a company's ability to be green. Contributing to the environment is important, and that is why Roto-Rooter Atlanta encourages its customers to learn how to pursue eco-friendly plumbing."
