Eco-Friendly Plumbing in Northbrook, IL

Highland Park's Sustainable Plumbing Solutions for a Greener Home

The plumbing system in your home is essential for everyday life. However, the water and waste that your plumbing system transports can have a significant impact on the environment. From the materials that your pipes are made of to the products that you use to clean your drains, your plumbing system can be a major contributor to environmental pollution. Fortunately, there are a number of ways that you can protect the environment while still having a functional plumbing system.

Contact American Weathermakers today at  (847) 503-9497 to discover eco-friendly plumbing options in Northbrook.

Choosing Sustainable Plumbing Materials

When you are choosing materials for your plumbing system, there are a number of factors to consider, including cost, durability, and environmental impact. Some plumbing materials, such as PVC pipes, are made from non-renewable resources and can take up to 100 years to break down in landfills. Other materials, such as copper pipes, are made from renewable resources and will not contribute to environmental pollution when they are thrown away.

When you are deciding which plumbing materials are best for your home, you should also consider your options for water heater, pipes, and fixtures. While some plumbing materials may be more expensive initially, they can save you money in the long run by requiring less maintenance and lasting longer than less expensive materials.

Choosing Eco-Friendly Products That Are Safe for Plumbing

When you are shopping for plumbing products, such as piping, faucets, and fixtures, you should look for products that are made from environmentally friendly materials. Stainless steel is a popular choice for plumbing products, as it is strong and durable, and it is made from recyclable materials. Ceramics are another option for plumbing products, as they are non-toxic, stain-resistant, and easy to clean.

When you are shopping for products such as drain cleaners and toilet cleaners, you should also look for products that are made with natural ingredients. Natural ingredients, such as essential oils, are less toxic and can be safely flushed down the toilet. You should also look for products that are made from recycled materials, as they can help reduce the need for non-renewable resources.
