Lower Flow Plumbing

Luckily for the environment and those of us concerned about our water usage at home, all new plumbing fixtures available on the market today are low-flow. What does that mean? Well for toilets, it means that the most water going down with each flush shouldn’t be any greater than 4.8LPF (Litres Per Flush).

For comparison, older toilets could use up to a whopping 13LPF. For faucets, the Canadian maximum flow rate for kitchen faucets is 8.35LPM (Litres Per Minute.) Being green isn’t about hitting the bare minimums though. To all of us here at Reliance™, being green is about doing better than the standards require.

Being Green

We went on a mission to find fixtures that are even lower flow than the standard low-flow fixtures required in Canada. We are proud to offer the PROFLO® Greenlee toilet that has a maximum 3.0LPF. That’s almost two litres less than the standard low-flow toilets widely available.

For your kitchen, we have the MOEN® ALIGN™ Single Handle High Arc Pulldown Kitchen Faucet that has a maximum flow rate of 5.7LPM- saving more than another 2.5 litres per minute! And for your bathroom, the Delta® Modern Single Handle Project Pack Faucet – Low Flow operates at 1.9LPM.
