Water scarcity is getting worse in many parts of the U.S. and the world, which has led to an increase in “green” legislation, codes, and standards, as well as greater recognition and adoption of LEED certification. In turn, this has led to a continued increase in sales of High-Efficiency Toilet (HET) and High-Efficiency Urinal (HEU) fixtures. This drive for water conservation and demand for high-efficiency plumbing products will only increase over time. This course will discuss how manufacturers are responding to this need with new toilet and urinal technologies. Learning objectives include:
- Discuss the importance of water conservation and how high-efficiency toilet systems can aid in these efforts.
- Review the technology behind hybrid urinals and how this product can contribute to water conservation.
- Examine a study that explored how a reduction in water consumption impacts drain lines and the plumbing system as a whole.
- Identify changes in LEED v4 related to water efficiency.
