When it comes to budgeting expenses, most homeowners and commercial property owners in Plant City, Lakeland, Winter Haven, and surrounding areas in Central Florida are all ears! Between necessities, utilities, and home expenses, it seems we are always dishing out money. One of the best ways to save a buck throughout the year, while helping the environment, is investing in water-saving toilets for your home.
Water-efficient toilets must meet both performance and efficiency criteria to be stamped with an approved Water Sense label.
A water-efficient toilet utilizes much less water than the average toilet. Since the main source of water being used in your home (a whopping 30%) is your toilets, finding a way to cut this down is necessary from an economical and environmental standpoint.
Water efficient toilets use 1.28 gallons or less per flush! Compared to a standard toilet, that is significantly less per flush.
Old toilets used to use anywhere from 3.5 to 7 gallons of water per flush. Now, per Federal plumbing standards, toilets can no longer flush more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush.
There are three different categories of water-saving toilets available on the market today for residents and business owners.
Before installing your new water-saving toilets, there are a few pros and cons to consider.
Homeowners can save money with their water-efficient toilets. The average family can reduce water consumption by 20-60%, which is roughly 13,000 gallons of water. Financially families can see a savings of over $100 per year on water costs and approximately $2,000 or more on the lifetime of the toilet.
Nationally, Americans could save over 500 billion gallons per year of water consumption if all toilets were replaced by more efficient varieties. Not only would homeowners be saving money, but they would also be practicing smart water conservation in the process.
