Yesterday a rep from Capital Environmental stopped by the house. He told me about the TAPS Program which encourages water conservation and is sponsored by Enbridge Gas. Basically they are providing (per house/apartment) a:
- kitchen sink aerator
- bathroom sink aerator
- foam pipe insulation for hot water pipes
We got two of everything so that we could also install them in our tenants apartment.
The showerheads look awesome. Lots of settings and all are only 4.7 litres per minute (1.25 gal per minute). This is way better than our existing "low-flow" showerhead which is 9.5 litres per minute (or 2.5 gal per minute)
As part of the riot I'm trying not to buy anything new but I figure new stuff that saves water is ok. Especially since the guy just showed up at my door - how perfect!
If you are interested in finding out more about the program, here's the info from the flyer (I couldn't find a web site).
