In an average St. Paul household, toilets are flushed an estimated 6 times a day accounting for around 30% of the use of water in the home. New technologies and toilet models labeled with Watersense, which is partnered with the EPA, have been developed so that waste can be reduced and water can be conserved. By retrofitting your bathroom with these newer models, it is estimated that around 2 billion gallons could be conserved per day. This would account for almost 11 gallons per toilet in a household.
Roto-Rooter is an expert for installing these new high-efficiency toilets (HET) and can order any model you would prefer. Below are some facts on why a Watersense labeled HET is the right choice for your home in St. Paul.
- A Watersense labeled HET flushes with just 1.28 gallons of water
- Uses 20% less water than 1.6 GPF toilets
- Has as much flushing power as standard 1.6 GPF toilets, thanks to advanced toilet design
New Dual-Flush Toilet
