Water Saving Toilets
The best way to practice green plumbing in your home is by installing water-saving toilets. Isn’t it time to replace your old toilet with a model that saves water? Old toilets use about 5 gallons (20 liters) per flush. When you consider that a normal person flushes a toilet seven or so times a day, you can see that a family of four consumes more than 140 gallons per day by flushing alone. The water consumption of toilets represents between 30 percent to 50 percent of the water consumed by a household each day.
Our Water-Saving toilets, like the one pictured, use 1.6 gallons (6 liters) per flush. If you replace those 5-gallon-per-flush toilets with 1.6-gallon-per-flush toilets, you save a huge amount of water — something like 100 gallons per day per household.
Green plumbing is any kind of plumbing equipment that helps you to save water and energy. It is popular not only because it makes for a cleaner and healthier environment, but also because it can help lower utility bills. Saving water is important because only 1% of Earth’s water is usable. As the population increases, conserving water becomes a more important step in making sure that everyone has access to a clean water supply.
