Sugar Hill, Ga. – California is facing a historic drought that is forcing residents, businesses and hotels to reconsider their water usage, including landscape irrigation and daily living routines. MTI Baths, known for its customized tubs, has been moved to act.
Governor Jerry Brown announced mandatory new restrictions designed to reduce overall water usage by 25 percent.
As a result of the recent California water restrictions, many are looking for innovative ways to meet the new requirements, and that includes water-saving fixtures in the bathroom. In addition to switching out showerheads and installing low-flow toilets, customers can also take advantage of MTI’s customization capabilities. MTI is offering an adjustment to the height of the tub overflow to reduce the amount of water used in the tub.
Because MTI tubs are made to order, the vast majority of tubs in the company’s large selection can be adjusted to meet new standards.
In addition to lowering the overflow, MTI currently offers 22 more compact tub models in different shapes, ranging from 42” to 60” long with heights ranging from only 16” to 19”. More compact tub dimensions and shorter height means a shallower bathing well, and therefore less water consumption required to cover more of the body.
“At MTI Baths, we take pride in our ability to respond quickly to industry needs especially when it comes to water consumption,” said Russell Adams, president and chief designer at MTI Baths. “Sometimes a seemingly small change, like the lowering of an overflow design, can make a significant difference in customers’ purchasing decisions, allowing them to meet local water consumption guidelines for future enjoyment of their tub. Being responsive to customer requests has earned us the goodwill of many repeat customers who are loyal to the MTI brand.”
