There will always be ongoing research and findings about our earth and what we can do to help conserve and preserve it in a healthy and beneficial way for all who live here. At Aloha Mechanical we strive to do our part to conserve resources and preserve the earth. Undoubtedly, many of you share these same interests and goals. We look to best practices and new research to give us the tools that we can recommend to you to "go green" whenever possible.

Aloha Mechanical Inc. has entered the world of solar. We are very excited to offer solar thermal water systems for domestic hot water, in-floor radiant, pools, spas, and back up space heating. We are currently installing Viesmanns solar collectors. In our opinion, Viesmanns is the leading solar manufacturer and the right solution for everyday applications.

Solar collectors are a great way to provide solar energy to heat domestic hot water and provide backup for space heating. The sun has provided light and heat to our earth for billions of years. The heating industry has committed to finding more responsible ways of handling our precious resources that have accumulated naturally over millions of years. One way to meet this goal is to make direct use of solar energy by means of collectors. We now have highly sophisticated collectors and a very efficient overall system. Affordable solar energy is no longer a vision; It is now a reality. Investing in a solar heating system is a genuine investment in the future.

Please read through our website to see the different things we all can do regarding plumbing to effectively and efficiently reduce our water usage and conserve energy to make this a greener earth for generations to come.




By cutting down our water use, you can:

  • Save money!
  • Reduce the possibility of water shortage.
  • Minimize the amount of energy and chemicals used in the treatment and pumping of water.
  • Reduce damage to wildlife habitats in wetlands and rivers.
We currently use approximately 127% more water than we did in the 1950's.How much water does the average person use and how can you decrease your consumption?
  • Bath-40 gallons
  • 5-minute shower-10 gallons
  • Brushing your teeth with tap running. (Yes, there are people who still do this.) 2 gallons per minute.
  • Brushing your teeth with the tap off. 1/4 gallon per minute. (Wow, see the difference!)
  • One toilet flush — 3 gallons
  • Washing machine — 40 gallons per load
  • Dishwasher — 10-13 gallons per load (New water efficient dishwashers use as little as 4 gallons per load.) Remember it is worth replacing old appliances with new energy efficient appliances.
Hints for recycling water: Recycling water is an easy way to make an impact and "Go Green." Only 3% of the water in the average home is used as drinking water.
  • Use leftover water to water your outdoor plants, flowers and especially your garden.
  • Consider installing a gray water system to recycle and reuse waste water from baths, sinks, etc.
Replace old toilets:
  • Older toilets can use 3 gallons of clean water with every flush, while new toilets use as little as 1 gallon.
  • Over 90% of all the clean, drinkable water you use in your home is used to flush toilets.
  • Toilet option:Much of the rest of the world uses dual flush toilets. This is a great option and the more people who use them the more water we conserve.
Fix your drips!
  • One dripping fixture can waste at least 20 gallons of water a day, which is approximately a full bathtub of water.
  • A leaky faucet that drips at 1 drop per second can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water per year.
You do the math. Save your money by repairing drips and leaks.

Garbage disposals: Go figure with a name like that. Yes, we all like them, but they are not supposed to be used to throw garbage down. There is a lot of wasted water that gets used while grinding and flushing food. Garbage disposals are made to dispose of crumbs and small soft debris left on kitchen utensils and dishes. Think about starting composting. Sounds like such a big word but really there are several easy and safe ways to do it.

Why is it important for all of us to conserve and recycle water? Almost 80% of the earth's surface is covered in water. Of this, 97% is salt water and 2% is glacial ice. That leaves less than 1% fresh water for all of us to use.
