At Granex Industries, Inc., we do not take for granted the Earth’s most valuable resource: water. That’s because it’s also one of the most valuable resources in our production facility. We need water to run the saw jet, three CNC machines, the edge polisher machine, and all of the tools that our hand workers use to put the finishing details on your countertops.
The problem is that all of these machines and tools can produce a lot of wastewater. Industrial water consumption in the U.S. in 2015 was estimated at 14,800 million gallons per day. Pennsylvania is one of the top five states with the most consumption. (source: water.usgs.gov/watuse/wuin.html) Fortunate for us, and mother nature, we’re able to use a closed-loop, chemical-free water recycling system which allows us to recycle clean water back to most of our equipment. Since installing this system, we’ve calculated nearly 75% savings in water and in cost!

WATER SAVING TIP:
The average person in the U.S. uses 80-100 gallons of water per day. Most of that usage is in the bathroom. Encourage your customers to replace their toilets and shower heads with water-efficient models in your bath designs. Switching out the old with the new can save gallons and gallons of water!
