Seattle high-performance homebuilder uses stealth countermeasures to conserve water
High-performance Seattle home builder Martha Rose is extremely serious when it comes to saving energy. Her latest new City Cabins™ homes in Seattle’s Licton Springs neighborhood are designed and built to save the homeowners on monthly utility charges.
The newest high-performance equipment added to the City Cabins™ is the Stealth toilet made by Niagara Conservation well known for their water conservation products. The Stealth ultra-high-efficient toilet is in a league of their own with their .08 gallons per flush rating (GPF). Low-toilets now save the average U.S. household (2.64 people) about 25 gallons per day, or more than 9,000 gallons per year (according to the book Water and Conservation by Amy Vickers). Since 1995 building codes have mandated a maximum of 1.6 gpf volume the Stealth uses half the water of a 1.6 gpf toilet.
Rose’s City Cabins are filled with water saving features: ultra-high-efficient Stealth toilets, low flow fixtures, short plumbing runs, exterior rain barrels and drought tolerant landscaping collectively working together to conserve our clean water resource. The high-performance City Cabins are scheduled to be completed early 2015, for more information or pre-sales opportunities contact Adrian Willanger 206 909-7536.
