Saving Water (and money) with a New Toilet.
Now that SWIFTMUD has issued its latest water restrictions, you’ve decided it’s time to buy a new toilet to brighten up your bathroom and save water. Changing your toilet to save water isn’t a bad idea. The epa.gov notes, “By replacing old, inefficient toilets with WaterSense labeled models, the average family can reduce water used for toilets by 20 to 60 percent. That’s nearly 13,000 gallons of water savings for your home every year! This could add up to a savings of more than $140 per year in water costs, and $2,900 over the lifetime of the toilets.”
Why are high-performing toilets better?
Familyhandyman.com explains that a high-performing toilet works in one flush. But, a lowering performing model tends to do the opposite. That’s good news if you’re looking at toilets that have larger trap ways. Larger trap ways prevent clogging because larger flush valves allow a more powerful rush of water to enter and clean the bowl. But don’t expect high performance from a cheap, contractor’s bargain toilet. When it comes down to it, familyhandyman.com says, the important choice is flushing performance.
You can rate flushing performance by comparing ratings at consumerreports.org. (And, while your at it, check for rebates.) Consider pressure assisted toilets to make cleaning easier. Cleaning can also be easier with wall hung toilets.
