    I've taken the Caring for Water and Climate Protection workshops and recommend them both highly. John Koeller really knows his stuff. And the miso is to die for. The Inspection Report Service workshop is brand spanking new. I'll be taking it later this year when it's offered in my area. Green Plumbing: "Get in, get out of the way, or get run over."

    Today I went to the GreenPlumbers class on water saving fixtures and devices.
    The introduction was by Carrie McChesney, introducing the green concept in plumbing.
    Also there was John Koeller of (MaP) Maximum Performance fame.
    Data from his report on gram ratings is used on my report, as are other considerations.
    He mentioned that 250 grams of waste is normal, so based on that, they figured the WaterSense program would start at 350 gram ratings.
    They end their test at 1000 grams, beyond that and it was becoming obvious that some manufacturers where building to get a high MaP rating at the expense of other quailities like bowl rinse.
    In my report, I try to balance these things, bowl rinse, quality of workmanship, repairability, ect.
    His flush rating method has helped encourage manufacturers to improve their products. There have been improvements made since the first test they came out with, the latest being eleven. I hear twelve is coming soon. Another interesting thing he mentioned was the drain line carry of toilets. The good gravity toilets were outperforming the pressure assist toilets.
    Al Dietemann from Seattle Utilities was also there.

    So this is a good group? I was wondering, we got an email from them asking for partnership.
