Water Efficiency at On Top of the World

At On Top of the World, water efficiency is a very important issue to us. We are committed to providing a water efficient home for our residents that will have less impact on our environment. We have artfully crafted features that help to enhance water saving like choosing native landscaping that requires less water and low-flow toilets that reduce the amount of water used per flush and so much more. We also participate in a voluntary certification program with Florida Water Star so that each individual home is ensured to have the best water saving features available.

Indoor Water Efficiency

Irrigation Water Efficiency

Below are just a few water-saving features incorporated into Florida Water StarSM homes with permanent irrigation systems.

  • Check Valves- Eliminates water draining at heads after the system is turned off.
  • Micro-Irrigation- Delivers water right at the base of plants, allowing for effective irrigation while using less water.
  • Pressure-Regulated Heads- Ensures the water flowing from the sprinkler head is at the optimal pressure.
