Recently, the city of Calgary approved a measure that requires all new toilet installations to comply with water-saving requirements for low-flow toilets, set at a maximum flushing capability of six litres. While most consumers agree that saving water and energy is good in principle, if the performance of a toilet doesn’t measure up they’re more likely to balk.

A new water heater is a purchase we’re not likely to show off to friends and family, but it’s a big decision and your household depends on its service. There are a lot of choices when it comes to how to heat your H2O, and satisfaction depends on asking the right questions:

• Which fuel source?

Is your current water heater fueled by natural gas, like most, or does electricity provide the power? Do you want to stick with the fuel source you have? Are you willing to have the water heater vented to accommodate the quick heating properties of a gas-fired unit?
