Low Flow Water Fixtures in Commercial Real Estate

Water is a necessity of life, but it is also one of the most wasted resources. It is regularly thought of as an infinite renewable resource that can be replenished over a small period of time, but that is far from the truth. According to the 2014 Government Accountability Report, 40 out of 50 states will face water shortage in the coming decade. Many states like California and Texas are already suffering from droughts and severe water shortages.

According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), each American uses an average of 82 gallons of water per day. That is way more than we actually need. If we decrease our water use by only 20%, we can save up to $400 per year in water bills. This can be corrected by replacing the old water fixtures with well-designed low flow water fixtures by Get Green NOI.

ESG (Environmental and Social Guidance) has become a prominent factor for commercial and residential real estate companies and businesses around the country. This idea perpetuates the focus on green energy and sustainability, resulting in reducing their carbon footprint, which should be the goal for every environmentally conscious company or individual.

Get Green NOI has found that up to 30% of water is wasted in multifamily communities due to leaks and the inefficiency of old water fixtures. This leads to a larger water and utility bill for the building managers and owners. Replacing these old faucets, showerheads, and flush systems in toilets and urinals with our specifically designed proprietory low flow water fixtures will significantly reduce water wastage. The idea of low-flow water fixtures may sound inconvenient or unsatisfactory, but our water fixtures are designed using technologies like aeration and laminar flow, which makes the experience indistinguishable from regular water fixtures and just as efficient in its working. Along with a lower water bill, the reduction in water use will also result in energy savings as less water is pumped to the apartments and less energy is used to heat that water. Thus the ROI (Return of Investment) of these fixtures will be complete in a short amount of time. This will also increase NOI (Net Operating Income) and make your building more sustainable, energy-efficient, green, and future proof. Water is no longer a renewable energy source, and at Get Green NOI, we believe that conservation of water is essential, and we strive to do that without dampening your experience.
