Water saving toilets
The future of low flow toilets
If you have toilets made after 1995 consider installing water saving toilets. High efficiency low flow toilets use at least 20% less water.
Thats 1.28 gallons per flush or less, saving you even more on your water bills.
These low flush toilets are independently tested and federally approved by the U.S Department of Energy and the EPA.
Tested and certified high efficiency models proudly sport the water sense logo.
High efficiency Toilets or HET's
New high efficiency toilets, or HET's, not only save more water, but in many instances they even outperform standard 1.6gpf models. Today some of the best flushing toilets are HET's that use new technologies to provide an even more complete flush while using less water.
Its important to note that selecting the best toilets for your home requires taking some other important features into consideration. Some models can not only outperform others, they also can provide added comfort.
For example dual flush toilets can save homeowners 20% to 40% more water than 1.6 gpf models, and all with just the push of a button.
Rebates and cash back incentives
You can get your local water provider to help you pick up the tab for your new low flush toilet. Many local water municipalities are offering rebates and cash back incentives for purchasing water saving toilets.
It's important to note that these local government rebate programs usually have particular guidelines. For example the cash back incentives may only apply for the purchase of a particular low flow toilet.
It's a good idea to check with your local water municipality before the purchase of any water saving toilet.
Make your current toilets more efficient
There are steps you can take to make your current toilets more efficient. Older toilets can be quite prone to leaks. And these leaks are costly and will only get worse if left unattended.
A toilet tank leak test can detect even the slightest leaks. Testing for leaks and fixing a toilet are easy to do. More times than not if your toilet keeps running it's due to a toilet flapper leak or a toilet fill valve leak. Have no fear, both these replacement parts are very inexpensive and easy to install.
