Save Water in the W.C. with an Efficient Toilet

Did you know that the toilets in your home are responsible for more than 30 percent of the water consumption of your home every month? By replacing old, inefficient and leaking toilets, not only can you save water, you can also economize on your water cost.

Why are the new generation toilets more efficient?

  • Through research, development and new innovative techniques, new toilets are able to perform an effective flush with only 1.28 gallons of water. Older models use up to 6 gallons of water for every flush.
  • By replacing the old and insufficient toilets in your home with new and efficient models, you can save almost 13 thousand gallons of water every year.

If you are not able to install new and efficient toilets in your home, you can still save water by improving the efficiency of your existing toilets. Try and use the low volume flush mode on a dual flush toilet as often as possible, re-adjust the toilet operation if the water continues to run in the water tank after a flush and check that there are no leaks. Replace the old and worn parts of your toilet to ensure the efficient operation of the unit. When a toilet that leaks water, continues running or gets clogged is repaired immediately you will save water.

When you are remodeling your house, building a new house or simply upgrading the toilets in your household, consider installing the new high efficiency toilets. If you are not able to purchase a high efficiency toilet model, weigh-up the benefits of installing a gravity flush, pressure-assist or vacuum assist toilet model in your home.
