There are several small things that any homeowner can do to help save on their water usage every month. Simply turning off the faucet while you brush your teeth and keeping showers as short as possible are simple and effective ways to save water. However, you can also make larger efforts, such as retrofitting your existing toilets to turn them into dual-flush models. This will help to significantly cut down on your water usage.
Most toilets flush away about 30% of an average home’s water usage. This is why it is so important to take advantage of efficient solutions that can help to save you water and money every time you flush. Dual-flush toilets can help to reduce your water usage by up to 80%, compared to a traditional toilet system. They are ideal for residential and light commercial use, making them ideal for any home or small business.
Low-flush toilets can save a significant amount of water with every flush, but they can be rather expensive to purchase and install. Dual-flush systems, on the other hand, can provide similar results without the investment of installing a new costly model.
Dual-flush systems work by using a half flush for liquid waste and a full flush for solid waste.The main purpose of investing in any eco-friendly or dual-flush toilet is to save water. By reducing your water usage, it can help to save money on your monthly water bills.
Choosing to take advantage of dual-flush toilets does not mean that you need to invest a large amount of time or money to make the switch. You can easily install dual-flush adapters on existing toilets. They look and feel similar to regular toilets and are simple to install, use, and maintain.
While push/pull designs work well, most homeowners prefer newer models, which feature two buttons (one for each flush). This tends to reduce the number of “misflushes” and can provide optimal performance.
Some homeowners can successfully install retrofit kits on their existing toilet in as little as 10 to 30 minutes.If you do not feel comfortable installing a new system on your own, or if it turns out to be trickier than you originally anticipated, then your local plumber can do it for you at a reasonable cost. They can ensure that your toilet is working optimally and will continue to meet your needs.
