3 Benefits Of Low-Flow Toilets and Dual Flush Toilets That Will Make Your Life Easier
Do you know how old the toilets are in your home? Were they made prior to the 1990s, or even before you were born?
If they were, you might want to think about adding more value to your property and lowering your water bills by upgrading to modern toilets.
If you do, you’ll get three immediate benefits that will enrich your home life and finances. With new toilets you’ll enjoy:
- Reduced water usage
- Reduced water bills
- Special rebates
But exactly what is a new toilet doing to get you these benefits? It’s all down to advances in construction and plumbing technique. Old American toilets are extremely well made, and many of them, despite being decades old, are still reliably working in many homes around the country. But that means that these older models are not benefiting from recent innovations in building and plumbing, and are far less efficient than the latest model of toilet. Old toilets flush about seven gallons of water into the sewer with every use.
New toilets, known as low-flow toilets, use the latest techniques so that only half that amount, or about 3.5 gallons, is used. That leads to the first big benefit.
1 - Less Water
Installing a low-flow toilet means you’re cutting your toilet water usage by 50%. But with another model, known as a dual flush toilet, there are two settings. Liquid waste doesn’t need as much water for a proper flush, so one setting only uses 1.5 gallons, for even greater reduced water usage. When you deal with solid waste, the second setting acts like a low-flow toilet, so you’re still only using 3.5 gallons instead of seven.
2 - Reduced Water Bills
This means that when you see your water bill, there’s going to be a noticeable drop in what you’re paying. You can save $100 or more every year on your bill with new toilets.
3 - Special Rebates
They may be the state, city or town level, but often if you look, you’ll find that you may qualify for a rebate just for upgrading to a new toilet. You can save even more by getting some money back.
