Green plumbing and eco-friendly options for water efficient plumbing fixtures and appliances are an important way to make a difference. Worldwide demand for water is increasing, and the choices we make now affect everyone’s future. Certainly, water conservation is a prime example of thinking globally and acting locally.

Over 70% of the earth is covered in water, but less than 0.5% of it is safe to drink. The population of the earth is twice what it was one hundred years ago, but the demand for water is five times as much! If you do the math, it’s obvious that we need to conserve water now.

Because we are nationally certified in water efficient plumbing systems, we are able to help you do just that. We want to help you achieve maximum water saving results by using eco-friendly, green plumbing Asheville options.

Whether you are building a new home or retrofitting your old plumbing fixtures, we want to provide you with environmentally sustainable answers for all your water & energy efficient plumbing needs. When properly installed, water efficient toilets, tankless water heaters, heat pump water heaters, super high efficiency water heaters, water efficient dishwashers, water efficient showers, and water efficient faucets can all add up to quite a bit of savings.

Potential National Savings from Water Efficient Plumbing Fixtures and Systems:

Common Questions About Asheville Green Plumbing:

How Can I Use Rainwater Plumbing in Asheville?

The most environmentally-friendly way to save water is by catching rain.

Rainwater harvesting is simply catching and collecting rainwater for future use, rather than allowing it to run off. Rain water catchment systems collect rain water in barrels to be used when needed for landscape irrigation, car washing, livestock, or pressure washing.

For thousands of years, people have been catching rainwater for household use. Even more, in some parts the world it is the only viable solution to meeting their water needs. If you are interested in installing a rainwater harvesting system, please contact us. In addition, you can call us at 828-774-7076 if you have any questions.

What is Greywater Plumbing?

Greywater systems reuse water from plumbing fixtures that would otherwise end up down the drain. That is, grey water systems are a way of reusing water from your washing machine, bathtub/shower, and your bathroom sink to irrigate your lawn and landscaping.

It’s like recycling your water.

Based on statistics, about 70% of all water used in the home would be classified as grey water. Grey water does not include any wastewater from toilets, kitchen sinks, dishwashers, and so is safe to use on plants, reducing your reliance on drinkable water for outdoor irrigation throughout the year.

However, in North Carolina, the laws are very specific about grey water use. Please contact us if you are interested or have questions about it!

Are There Water Efficient Fixtures for Commercial Kitchens ?

One option for water efficient commercial plumbing is Commercial Pre-Rinse Spray Valves.

Pre-rinse spray valves remove food waste from dishes prior to dishwashing. According to, by switching to a water-efficient pre-rinse spray valve, a commercial kitchen can save between $115-$240 annually in energy and water costs.

Nationwide, commercial kitchens need ~51 billion gallons of water a year for their pre-rinse spray valves. In fact, pre-rinse spray valves account for nearly 1/3 of the total water used!

Replacing one pre-rinse spray valve with a water-efficient model can save a typical commercial kitchen more than 7,000 gallons of water per year. That is the amount of water needed to wash nearly 5,000 racks of dishes! Because dishes are rinsed with hot water, installing a new pre-rinse spray valve can reduce annual natural gas use by more than 6,400 cubic feet per year. That’s enough energy to run its convection oven 12 hours a day for three weeks.

A commercial kitchen that replaces one pre-rinse spray valve with a water-efficient model could reduce water costs by $65 per year and energy costs by $50 per year (natural gas) or $175 per year (electricity). That’s ROI in as little as 4-8 months.

Call us if you are interested in discussing water efficient commercial plumbing options.

What Are The Benefits of Using Water Efficient Showerheads?

Water Efficient Showerheads

Showering is one of the leading ways we use water in the home, according to It accounts for nearly 17% of residential indoor water use—which for the average family adds up to nearly 40 gallons per day.

That’s nearly 1.2 trillion gallons of water used in the US annually just for showering, or enough to supply the water needs of New York and New Jersey for a year!

Standard showerheads use 2.5 gallons of water per minute, but water-saving showerheads use no more than 2.0 gpm. The average family could save 2,900 gallons per year just by installing efficient showerheads. Since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, they will also save energy. Altogether, if every home in the US installed water-efficient showerheads, we could save more than $2.2 billion in water bills, $2.6 billion in energy costs, and more than 260 billion gallons of water annually.

Please call Goodman Plumbing at 828-774-7076 and we can help you find the perfect water efficient plumbing fixture for your needs!

What Kind of Water Efficient Toilets Are Available?

Toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home, using nearly 30% of an average home’s indoor water consumption. Older, inefficient toilets that use as much as 6 gallons per flush also happen to be a major source of wasted water in many homes. Newer, water efficient toilets use 1.28 gallons per flush (or less) while still providing equal or superior performance. Basically, you could save almost 5 gallons of water every time you flush!

By replacing old, inefficient models with water-efficient toilets, the average family can reduce water used by their toilets by 20-60%—that’s nearly 13,000 gallons of water savings for your home every year.

You could also save more than $110 per year in water costs—$2,200 over the lifetime of the toilet.

Significantly, if homeowners in the US replaced all their inefficient toilets with water-efficient models, we could save 520 billion gallons of water per year. That’s the amount of water that flows over Niagara Falls in about 12 days.

Give Goodman Plumbing a call at 828-774-7076 and we will help you get a better, more efficient toilet right away.

What Kind of Water Efficient Faucets & Accessories Are There?

Many people know that we can save water if we turn off the tap while brushing our teeth (as much as 3,000 gallons per year). But did you know that there are water-saving faucets and accessories that will help you save water in your home and save money on water bills? Water-efficient bathroom sink faucets and accessories (such as aerators) can reduce water flow by 30% or more.

Replacing older faucets and aerators with water-efficient models can save the average family 700 gallons of water per year, equal to the amount of water needed to take 40 showers. Also, since these water savings reduce demands on water heaters, you will also save energy and money.

If every home in the US replaced existing faucets and aerators with water-efficient models, altogether we could save nearly $1.2 billion in water and energy costs and 64 billion gallons of water across the country annually—that’s equivalent to the annual water needs of more than 680,000 American homes.
