HET Toilets Reduce Waste and Conserve Water

HET Toilets Reduce Waste and Conserve Water

In an average Atlanta 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 you’re going to conserve water and enjoy a lower water bill. If everyone took these conservation steps, 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 when it comes to installing these new high-efficiency toilets (HET) and can order any model you would prefe or you can purchase the toilet yourself and hire Roto-Rooter to install it properly. Below are some facts on why a Watersense-labeled HET is the right choice for your home in Atlanta.

  • 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

  • Uses two buttons or handles to flush two different amounts of water
  • A low-volume flush (usually .08 gallon) is selected for clearing liquids from the bowl
  • A full-power flush (1.6 gallons) is selected for removing solid waste from the bowl
  • Saves a family of four up to 15,000 gallons of water per year over an old 3.5 GPF toilet
