Saving Water = Saving the Future!

Water efficiency is the long-term ethic of saving water resources through the employment of water-saving technologies and activities. Using water efficiently will help ensure supplies for future generations.

Across the country, our growing population is putting stress on available water supplies. Between 1950 and 2000, the U.S. population nearly doubled while the public demand for water more than tripled! Americans now use an average of 100 gallons of water each day—enough to fill 1,600 drinking glasses! This increased demand has put additional stress on water supplies and distribution systems, threatening both human health and the environment.

There’s a reason that water has become a national priority. A recent government survey showed at least 36 states are anticipating local, regional, or statewide water shortages by 2013. But by using water more efficiently, we can help preserve water supplies for future generations, save money, and protect the environment.

One way to help save the average family over 17,000 gallons of fresh water each year is to use a hot water recirculating system to send cooled water (from your hot water pipe) back to your water heater for reheating instead of running it down the drain (whil waiting for hot water to arrive at your faucet or shower).

Simply install innovative eco-friendly and patented technology known as the Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot water Valve (is a breeze to install-no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections). It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity). To save hot water and save energy, these eco-friendly hot water recirculating systems are temperature-controlled and are easily adjustable to meet your particular temperature needs. There is no water waste and it also reduces the energy required to heat your water while it provides faster hot water to your faucets and showers for better water

Hot Water Recirculation Is Water Conservation!

Waiting for hot water is a common problem: turn on the faucet or shower for hot water, then wait for the water to slowly run from cool to hot. With a Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve in place, there’s no more waiting for hot water!

The average family can waste over 17,000 gallons of fresh water each year while it runs down the drain as you wait for hot water to arrive (according to G.A.M.A. statistics).

Without a recirculation system, every time you wait for hot water to arrive: That 2-3 gallons of water from your water heater (that runs down the drain) is replaced by COLD (ground temperature) water, requiring your water heater to use additional energy to heat the cold water.

Simply install innovative eco-friendly and patented technology known as a “temperature controlled hot water recirculating valve” (is a breeze-no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections). It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity). To save hot water and save energy these systems are temperature-controlled and are easily adjustable to meet your particular temperature needs. There is no water waste and it also reduces the energy required to heat your water while it provides faster hot water to your faucets and showers for better water conservation.

Tips For Water Conservation In Your Home

Every day, there are many simple little things we can do around the house to save water, money and help the environment. Take a look through the tips below for some clever shortcuts to savings.

  • Checking for leaks in taps, pipes and dishwasher hoses is an easy way to reduce water wastage. Remember, one leaking tap can waste more than 2,000 liters a month.
  • The most water efficient methods for cooking vegetables are microwaving, steaming or using a pressure cooker. You can also cut down on water loss by using tight lids on pots and simmering instead of boiling rapidly.
  • Installing water efficient taps or tap aerators is a great, inexpensive way to cut your water usage without you even noticing.
  • Install innovative eco-friendly and patented technology known as the Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve (a breeze to install-no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections). It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity). To save hot water and save energy these hot water recirculating systems are temperature-controlled and are easily adjustable to meet your particular temperature needs. There is no water waste and it also reduces the energy required to heat your water while it provides faster hot water to your faucets and showers for better water conservation.
  • Thaw frozen foods before you need them or use the microwave instead of placing them under running water.
  • Prevent taps from leaking by turning taps off lightly and replace washers as soon as they begin to leak.
  • Automatic dishwashers can use up to 40 liters of water per load. By using a dishwasher with at least a 3 star/AAA rating, you can get this figure down to 18 liters per load and still get the kind of sparkling clean dishes you’re used to.
  • It’s best to wait until you have a full load in your dishwasher before using it. This saves water and energy, and reduces the amount of detergent entering the wastewater system.
  • Keep a container of water in the fridge so that you won’t need to run the water down the sink until it’s cool enough to drink.
  • Washing fruit and veggies in a half-filled sink instead of under running water is a great way to cut back on water wastage.
  • Rinsing your dishes in a plugged sink rather than under a running tap saves water and is just as easy and effective.
  • Use a sink strainer.
  • Try to use phosphate-free, eco-friendly detergents and cleaning products – there’s a great range to choose from these days and they’re much better for our environment.
  • Remember to regularly clean the lint filter on your washing machine.
  • Most washing machines have a load adjustment button or dial, so try to set this to match the amount of washing you’re doing. If your machine doesn’t have a load adjustment function, try to wait until you have enough washing for a full load.
  • Installing one of the latest 3 star/AAA rating showerheads 1 can give you a great shower and save you around 10 liters of water a minute. They also save you energy costs, as you’ll use less hot water.
  • To rinse your razor, run a little water into a plugged sink. Rinsing your razor under a running tap wastes lots of water.
  • There’s no need to leave the tap running while you brush your teeth. Simply wet your toothbrush before you begin and use a glass of water to rinse your mouth.

How To Prevent Pipe Freezing!

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of having a water pipe freeze and burst, you know first hand about what a devastating impact it can have on your home. The broken pipe itself is actually relatively minor, but the damage caused by the leaking water running through your walls and ceiling can mean a major reconstruction project, requiring replacing drywall, ceilings and maybe even furniture and appliances. Here are some ways to make sure you never have to go through that hassle.

1. Plan ahead and figure out which pipes could potentially freeze. Water pipes running through unheated crawl spaces and pipes running through walls to the outside are prime candidates for freezing.

2. Turn off the water supply lines running to your outside taps before the cold weather arrives. There is usually a shut off valve in the water supply line close to where it goes through the outside wall. Once the water is shut off inside, go outside and open the outside taps as well. This will drain any water remaining in the pipe or in the tap, so there’s nothing to freeze.

3. Check any pipes that run close to outside walls. Put some insulation between the pipe and the wall to help keep the cold away from the pipe.

4. Insulate any pipes that run through unheated crawl spaces. Wrap them with insulation and tape or put preformed pipe sleeve insulation along the pipes, then tape the sleeves in place.

5. Install electrical heating tape (available at home stores) on any pipes that run through areas that get really cold, like garages.

6. Letting a faucet drip during extreme cold weather can prevent a pipe from bursting. A small flow of water helps prevent pipe freezing. Opening a faucet will provide relief from the excessive pressure that builds between the faucet and the ice blockage when freezing occurs. If there is no excessive water pressure, there is no burst pipe, even if the water inside the pipe were to freeze. However, a dripping faucet wastes water and wastes energy.

7. OR, the best solution to prevent your pipes from freezing is to simply install innovative eco-friendly and patented technology known as a “temperature controlled hot water recirculating valve” (is a breeze-no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections). It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity). To save hot water and save energy these hot water recirculation systems are temperature-controlled and are easily adjustable to meet your particular temperature needs.

Eco-Friendly Innovative Hot Water Recirculation System

In your home, the water in the hot water pipe has usually been sitting in the pipes for a while and is probably not hot right away. Normally, anyone needing hot water opens the hot water faucet and waits until fresh hot water from the water heater reaches the fixture. In large homes, especially at the plumbing fixtures farthest from the water heater, this can take a quite a while and waste a lot of water down the drain. In fact, according to the GAMA, the average family can wastes over 17,000 gallons of fresh each year this way.

Hot water recirculation systems circulate water in the hot water pipes, so that hot water will always be available and less water is wasted. Conservation issues are rising in importance due to constantly expanding populations and limited resources.

Simply install the eco-friendly innovative and patented technology known as a “temperature controlled hot water recirculating valve” (is a breeze-no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections).

Can a Hot Water Recirculation System Help?

A hot water recirculation system draws hot water from your tank type water heater and replaces the cooled off hot water in your hot water pipes with hot water by sending the cooled off “hot” water back to the water heater via the cold water line where it is heated back up.

Think of it this way, when you usually let the cooled off hot water run down the drain until hot water arrives at your faucet or shower (when the cooled off water in your hot water pipes has now been replaced with hot water). With a hot water recirculation system, the cooled off hot water is just sent back to the water heater (through the cold water line) and very quickly replaced with hot water instead of being dumped down the drain.

New eco-friendly innovative and patented technology known as the “Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve” makes installing a hot water recirculation system a breeze. It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity).

Simple Ways To Reduce Your Energy Usage

You have the power to reduce energy usage, and when you reduce demand, you cut the amount of resources, like coal and gas, needed to make energy—that means you create less greenhouse gas emissions, which keeps air cleaner for all of us…and saves on your utility bills!

The typical U.S. family spends about $1,900 a year on home utility bills? Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted. And each year, electricity generated by fossil fuels for a single home puts more carbon dioxide into the air than two average cars. And as for the road, transportation accounts for 67% of all U.S. oil consumption. The good news is that there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home and in your car. Start making small changes today.

The key to achieving these savings in your home is a “whole-house” energy efficiency plan. To take a whole-house approach, view your home as an energy system with interdependent parts. For example, your heating system is not just a furnace—it’s a heat-delivery system that starts at the furnace and delivers heat throughout your home using a network of ducts. Even a top-of-the line, energy-efficient furnace will waste a lot of fuel if the ducts, walls, attic, windows, and doors are not properly sealed and insulated. Taking a whole-house approach to saving energy ensures that dollars you invest to save energy are spent wisely. Energy-efficient improvements not only make your home more comfortable, they can yield long-term financial rewards. Reduced utility bills more than make up for the higher price of energy-efficient appliances and improvements over their lifetimes. In addition, your home could bring in a higher price when you sell.

One simple way to improve your energy efficiency is installing an eco-friendly innovative and patented technology known as the “Hot Water Lobster Instant Hot Water Valve”. It uses your existing water pipes and the thermal convection generated by your water heater to circulate the water back to your water heater for reheating (not requiring a pump or any electricity). To save energy and save water this “hot water recirculating systems has a temperature-controlled valve that allows the consumer to easily adjust the temperature to meet their particular needs. There is no water waste as it reduces the energy required to heat your water while it provides faster hot water to your all your faucets and showers for better water conservation. Installation is a simple 15-minute DIY project (no pipe cutting, soldering or electrical connections).
