There is nothing quite as satisfying as a good long shower. Folks have always been aware of how awesome it feels to wash away the dirt of a hard working day or relax a weary body. While many might assume the show to be a fairly recent luxury, they have been around a lot longer than you may think. In fact it is only the way that a shower is carried out that’s changed over time.
How often do we take water for granted? Probably more often than you think! We see it every day. People choose to drink things like soft drinks rather than clean, healthy water. However, when we do need water, we most likely don’t think twice about where it comes from, how clean it is and other facts about our water supply. The following infographic provides a deeper look into water around the world.
Toilets are nothing new to us. However, did you know that 2,800 years ago King Minos had the first flushing water closet ever recorded in history? It’s true! Toilets have come a long way since that time. Here is an infographic that will help you to learn about the past, present and future of the toilet.
The only way to really understand and appreciate the importance of water to our lives is to look at some vital information about water needs. The folks at Najboljsa Voda do just that for us in the following infographic. And if you are in need of a reverse osmosis system in the metro Phoenix area, we can help.
We are currently running a promotion on Hellenbrand ProMate 6.5 water softeners. Hellenbrand’s Electronic On Demand System in the ProMate 6.5 incorporates all of the best engineering features of the ProMate 6.0 Series with additional “high performance” designs, that provides higher capacities or more simply put “better gas mileage” and less salt used.
Every homeowner in the United States has been faced with waiting for hot water at his or her shower or faucet. It is frustrating, inconvenient and it wastes thousands of gallons per household every year. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could turn on a shower and walk right in? Is it a novel thought with today’s know-how and new technology? Not really. Everyone should know that water recirculation systems are available for new homes, but must be specified by the homebuyer.
(NAPS)—Wasted water is more than just a drop in the bucket. A typical U.S. household wastes more than 8,000 to 14,000 gallons per year just waiting for hot water in the sink, shower or tub. In addition, rural areas are adding municipal water and sewage systems as new developments are built, putting unprecedented demands on water tables even in states where water supply has not traditionally been a problem.
(NAPS)—When shopping a new home, there are many points to consider besides location, square footage and number of rooms.
We are often asked if it is safe to drink soft water. Soft water, while not toxic, should generally not be consumed in large quantities. The process of softening the water involves an exchange of hard water minerals, which leaves sodium ions in the soften water. The harder the water (the water in Phoenix is very hard), the more sodium is exchanged, and the higher consumption of sodium associated with drinking the softened water. High sodium intake has been linked to hypertension, high blood pressure, and other health issues. The alternative to sodium softening is potassium, however the cost of this process can be four five times that of a sodium based process.
As a homeowner or business owner one of the easiest things you can do to save water is to inspect and adjust your automatic drip systems on a regular basis. After plants are established check with your local landscaper or nursery and ask them how to adjust your system to use the least amount of water to safely sustain your plants and shrubs. Over watering can be harmful and wasteful and can over stimulate some plants and which causes additional trimming and thinning. When we get our winter rains you may be able to turn down your irrigation system for periods of time saving additional water.
