Go Green and Save Green
The Green Screened™ mark is bestowed upon plumbing companies who embrace the challenge of protecting the environment. Only 1 of all contractors in North America qualify for Green Screened certification. Those given the honor provide the absolute best customer service, guarantees, and workmanship in the country. Green Screened plumbing companies also understand the importance of water conservation and water health and have made a commitment to educate homeowners on the benefits of having a “green plumbing system.” All Green Screened plumbing companies have taken an oath to provide homeowners with Home Conservation Evaluations. These evaluations include a:
- Water Wasted Audit – An approximation of how many hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons of water your home wastes every single year.
- Healthy Water Check – An analysis of what types of chemicals or impurities may be in the water you drink and use every day.

WATER SHORTAGES MAY HIT YOUR AREA WITHIN THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS
Utility Costs Will Climb and Water Unfit for Consumption May Be Distributed to the Public!
The population in North America has more than doubled in the last 50 years, yet the demand for water has tripled. The average person now uses—in one way or another—more than 100 gallons of water a day! As a result, levels of consumable water are far too low. Over the next several years, government studies have suggested that we may experience a water shortage. 36 states are anticipating problems on a local, regional, and statewide basis! This escalated demand for water is putting a heavy strain on distribution centers, too. Experts fear that these centers will not be able to properly remove all of the natural contaminants and human pollutants before the water is dispensed to the public—to you! So, not only are water supplies diminished; the water that is “supposedly useable” may contain high percentages of toxins! All this information points to one obvious fact: Water is more precious than ever! Everyone has a responsibility to start using it more efficiently. That begins by being more conscious of your water-consuming habits, modifying your home to make it more efficient, and regularly checking your water for impurities!
One of the BIGGEST Reasons for the Impending Shortages: Drippy Faucets, Running Toilets, and Inefficient Water Heaters! Those Pesky Plumbing Problems that Drive You ABSOLUTELY NUTS Are Wasting THOUSANDS of Gallons of Water Each Year!
FACT! ONE dripping faucet can waste more than 180 gallons of water a month and 2,160 gallons per year!
FACT! A single leaky toilet can waste tens of thousands of gallons in just one year—enough water to fill a backyard swimming pool! And according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 20-40% of ALL toilets leak!
FACT! Due to inefficient water heaters, people run showers and faucets waiting for the water to gel worm. In the process, they waste on average 9,000 gallons of water each year!
If Your Home is More than 10 Years Old, You Could Be Wasting Thousands MORE Gallons of Water Every Year!
In 1994, the National Energy Policy Act was passed. It set standards on all plumbing fixtures forcing them to become more water and energy efficient. So, if your home was constructed before ’94, it’s highly likely that its plumbing is drastically behind these new regimented standards… On average, it could be devouring TWO TIMES more water than is necessary!
