At Pedal Valves, our number 1 focus is the conservation of our most precious natural resource - water. Through years of engineering and construction in the water conservation field, we have been able to develop a database of all water saving products available. We look to this database and our experience to help you turn your water wasteful buildings into Water Conserving Buildings.
This process starts with a detailed walk through of each building at your facility. After this survey is conducted, Pedal Valves then constructs a mathematical model of each building. This model takes into account the number and types of fixtures at each building, the number of visitors and staff, and the cost of water, energy, and sewage treatment.
After the models for each building are completed, we then conduct a water conservation engineering and design analysis of the facilities. This process determines the best combination of retrofits to cost effectively reduce consumption of utilities.
Based off of this analysis, different retrofit criteria can be established. Extensive upgrades can be expected in buildings where water and sewage is more expensive and the consumption is high. Limited upgrades can be expected in buildings where water and sewage is inexpensive and the consumption is low.
Some of the Benefits of Water Conservation Upgrades:
Our projects are designed to reduce water consumption, wastewater production, and hot water energy usage through the installation of state of the art, highly efficient, plumbing products and controls. The use of these devices and others are selected not only for their efficiency, but also to provide for durable, long-term use with minimal maintenance and improved hygiene.
The installation of our equipment will significantly lower the operating costs of the facility through utility savings. Additionally, several other benefits will be realized, including:
- Improved sanitation in the kitchen and medical areas through the use of pedal operated faucet controllers that eliminate the spread of germs by hand contact with faucet controls;
- Improved appearance when the outdated fixtures are replaced with new ones; and
- Significantly lower maintenance costs associated with facility plumbing leaks, clogs and breakage due to the replacement of the outdated fixtures with the new, high efficiency fixtures.
