This spring you are probably busy completing spring cleaning tasks and possibly getting started on some home improvement tasks. Making green changes is a great way to do your part in helping the environment and saving money. This spring consider starting in your bathroom and upgrading to a water saving toilet.
New homes now come standard with water saving toilets because of changes in federal rules. If you have an older home, though, and you haven’t completed any bathroom updates, your toilet is probably of the older type. Older toilets can use at much as 7.0 gallons per flush (gpf). The rules now require that new toilets use just 1.6 gpf or even less. When you upgrade to one of these newer, green toilets, you will be doing your part in conserving one of our most precious resources, water. If you use municipal water, you also know the monetary value of saving water. When you pay for water, you are well aware that saving water means saving money.
You could increase water efficiency even more by choosing a dual flush toilet. This type of water saving toilet features two flushing modes, a 0.8 gallon mode for liquid waste and a 1.6 gallon option for solid waste. The more powerful flush that uses more water can be used only when necessary, allowing you to save even more water in your home.
Upgrading to a water saving toilet is a simple and inexpensive way to make your bathroom a greener place.
