Roto-Rooter Atlanta: Consider Water-Saving Fixtures for Bathroom Remodeling Projects

New Reports Suggest the Bathroom Is the Most Popular Room to Undergo a Remodel; Roto-Rooter Atlanta Responded With Tips for Choosing Water-Saving Bathroom Fixtures

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Dec 3, 2012) - An article published in The Boston Globe shared new tips from the people at Consumer Reports that detailed where to save and where to splurge on bathroom renovations. With regard to plumbing fixtures, there are a number of options. Reputable plumbing company Roto-Rooter Atlanta took note of the suggestions.

When it comes to toilets, the article reports the latest design trends have these fixtures practically concealed from view. Installing toilets behind half walls or within closet-like enclosures is quickly becoming popular.

In regards to conservation, the article suggests homeowners save money by installing toilets that meet EPA WaterSense standards. These toilets use just under 1.28 gallons of water each time they are flushed. Furthermore, the article states these toilets save approximately $90 in water costs per year compared to older toilets.

Roto-Rooter Atlanta advocates for the installation of water-saving bathroom fixtures whenever possible. Their team of licensed and insured plumbers and technicians are well qualified to install new toilets, showerheads and faucets designed to conserve water. In a statement to the press, the company commented: "The ROTOGreen initiative details the efforts of our company to make conservation a way of life. We strive to do our part by offering customers affordable water-saving fixtures and green plumbing parts whenever possible."

Showerheads offer another opportunity for homeowners to save water. A number of modern showerheads have been manufactured to spray at a reduced rate of water flow without negative impact to water pressure. New designs that deliver water similar to that experienced during a rain shower were popular among testers, the article noted. It is also no longer uncommon to see more and more showers built to include dual showerheads. In more luxurious cases, steam generators are also featured.

The article also suggested trends towards constructing larger showers in place of garden tubs. By utilizing space once engulfed by these fixtures, shower stalls can measure anywhere from four-by-six feet or, according to the article, five-by-seven feet. Level shower floors instead of sunken tubs enable people to age into their showers. For instance, elderly persons will no longer have to step into tubs and can more easily access these spaces via wheelchairs.
