Did you know that toilets are a main source of water use in your home? The EPA estimates that nearly 30 percent of water use in a home comes from toilets. They also estimate that toilets are a major source of wasted water in homes because of small, undetected leaks and because older models are usually very inefficient.
You can save on monthly utilities with a simple change from an older standard toilet, to a newer high efficiency model. An high efficiency model uses an estimated 1.6 gallons per flush, as compared with models made prior to 1992 that often use as much as 6 gallons per flush. These newer toilets use advances in technology that move water more quickly and with higher pressure to ensure that the toilet clears, even though it uses so much less water.
Saving up to 60 percent of your water use in toilets will add up to big savings in your home. The EPA estimates that each high efficiency toilet will save approximately $2,000 in water bills over the lifetime of the unit! You will spend less money and waste far less water.
