Did you know that your toilet uses 30 percent of your water supply? According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), older toilets use about 3-6 gallons of water per flush.
With newer low-flow toilets, homeowners can save dramatically on the amount of water used per flush. The new standard of low-flow toilets is 1.6 gallons per flush. Some models with a WaterSense label can save you even more money, as they use only 1.25 gallons of water per flush. A WaterSense toilet is independently certified to meet the water efficiency and performance criteria set by the EPA.
Some utility companies even offer rebates and promotions to homeowners, just for switching to more efficient and water saving technology (including some low-flow toilets).
So don’t flush your money down the toilet! Save water and money and consider a low-flow toilet for your home.
