Green It (Installment 10)

Schaible's Plumbing - Friday, February 04, 2011
In honor of Valentine's Day, here are some ideas for gifts that pamper loved ones while protecting our environment:
  • An instant hot water tap in the kitchen or bar area is a thoughtful gift that will save hours of boiling water on a stove. It’s a luxury that also conserves energy.
  • Water-saving kitchen faucets make everyday cooking and dish washing easier, with integrated sprayers and quick shut-off features.
  • If you choose a new kitchen faucet, you may wish to select a sink to go with it. Many kitchen sinks have small sinks on one side for washing fruits and vegetables, or soaking small items. These small attached sinks are not only convenient; they also save water.
  • Don’t forget the ever-popular massaging shower head. It’s luxurious, and it saves water and energy. You can select a beautiful shower head that detaches with a handle for even more pampering and water conservation.
  • For the ultimate in comfort, consider dual water-saving shower heads. You can combine a detachable shower head with multiple massage settings and a fixed shower head, or any combination of shower heads. Luxury - and energy + water savings - are within your reach with Schaible's

The work was accomplished with meticulous care and clean-up. I am a "Mr." (Mrs.) CLEAN type of housekeeper, and I was concerned that I would have to get my pail and scrub brush out when the work was completed. Not so! I am very satisfied with the service. The hot water is just the correct temperature.
