Low Flow Toilet Cost And Water Savings
How much of your household water supply do you think your toilets use?
It’s okay if you have no idea. Most people don’t (but the answer still might surprise you).
The answer is C. Over 25% of your water is getting flushed down the toilet.
It’s true. Conventional toilets can use about six gallons of water per flush. And since the average person flushes five times per day (yes, someone studied this), depending on the number of people in your household, it can really add up.
So, it’s no wonder when the temperatures are soaring in the triple digits, and we’re all looking for ways to conserve water, the loo is one of the first places to look.
Conventional toilets can use about six gallons of water per flush.
Your toilet offers significant opportunity to conserve water in your home. First, it uses more water than anything else in your home. Second, it requires only a few changes to your habits and bathroom fixtures, with minimal effect on your daily life.
Go Low Flow!
Swap your out-dated throne for a new high-efficient model makes a ton of sense because they use as little as 1.6 gallons per flush. You can save money. Conserving water can add up to savings of as much as $100 per year. And since you wouldn’t flush a $100 bill down the toilet, why not save that amount by installing low-flow toilets?
Use Your Toilet as a Toilet
You might not realize how often you use your toilet as a garbage can. Throwing items like facial tissues in the garbage to conserve on your flushes. And we get why you might want to flush a dead bug down the toilet—you just want it gone and to know it won’t wind up on your pillow later. We get it. But it’s not worth the precious water it takes to whisk it away.
