High-Efficiency Toilets Reduce Waste and Conserve Water

High-Efficiency Toilets Reduce Waste and Conserve Water

In an average Flushing 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 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 of water 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 Flushing.

  • A WaterSense labeled HET flushes with just 1.28 gallons of water
  • Uses 20% less water than 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF) toilets
  • Has as much flushing power as standard 1.6 GPF toilet, 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
