If you are considering making some updates to the plumbing in your bathroom or kitchen, the low-flow fixtures are probably on your list of installations to consider. (And if they aren’t … put them on the list now.)
Low-flow fixtures work pretty much exactly like their name: they slow down the amount of water flowing from a tap. In the case of toilets, low-flow models restrict how much water is used per flush. This helps to save water. But how much of a difference do these fixtures make? Enough for them to be worthwhile upgrades for a bathroom or kitchen?
