Toilets are by far the main source of water used in the home, business, or institution. In the home they account for nearly 30 percent of an average home's indoor water consumption. Older, inefficient toilets that use as much as 6 gallons per flush also happen to be a major source of wasted water in many homes. Many more statistics from the EPA and WaterSense programs can truly convice you that water–efficient toilets, such as low–flow toilets, are a great way to reduce household water use. So, that said let's talk the facts. Here a few to consider.
Recent advancements in technology have allowed toilets to use now use only 1.28 gallons per flush or less while still providing equal or superior performance. This is 20 percent less water than the current federal standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are independently certified to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only water–saving toilets that complete the certification process can earn the WaterSense label.
While these types of toilets are mainly used in residences, WaterSense labeled flushometer-valve toilets are high-performance, water-efficient options for toilets in commercial applications as well. So if you have a business building needing to consider upgrades we hope this gets your attention.
Here are the facts on replacing old, inefficient toilets with WaterSense labeled models. The average family will be able to reduce water used for toilets by 20 to 60 percent—that's nearly 13,000 gallons of water savings for your home every year! Here at Action we support all plumbing products with the WaterSense label. Now one more thought, to put it in terms of savings on your water bill. Using a WaterSense labeled toilet will save more than $110 per year in water costs, and $2,200 over the lifetime of the toilets. That's worth consideration.
On a national basis, statistics from the EPA WaterSense program say if all old, inefficient toilets in the United States were replaced with WaterSense labeled models, we could save 520 billion gallons of water per year, or the amount of water that flows over Niagara Falls in about 12 days. So we believe you need to "Look for the WaterSense Label!" before you buy.
