Conserve More Water with a Dual-Flush Toilet

As technology evolves, you continue to have a greater number of green living options made available to you.  And we’re all better off for it.

Here’s a very good example: not exactly the newest kid on the block, but one not yet widely known. It’s called a dual-flush toilet, and it has two built-in flushing options.: half flush for liquid waste which consumes only 1.3 gallons of water, and the full flush mode for solid waste disposal consuming 1.6 gallons of water per flush.

If the toilet you’re replacing is an older model, it currently uses 3-5 gallons per flush. How much water can you save by switching from your older toilet to a dual-flush model? According to the Sierra Club, a family of four will save an average of 7,000 gallons per year.

One more thing about dual-flush toilets to keep in mind: less water does not mean more toilet blockages.  Quite the opposite, in fact, since dual-flush toilets have greater flushing power and in-bowl traps about twice the size of older style toilets, thus virtually eliminating the potential for clogged toilets.
