Low flow toilets offer an easy solution for New Jersey homeowners that are looking to save money and/or get greener at home. Toilets are often overlooked when homeowners begin thinking of appliances or working parts of a home that can be upgraded for efficiency purposes. They are, in fact, actually the number one water-using system in your home. Toilets are followed by washing machines and shower/bathtubs for home water usage.
If your home has a toilet (or toilets!) that are 10 plus years old, chances are that they are using up to 7 gallons per flush! The average person uses the bathroom up to 7 times a day. With those numbers, each household member could be using just shy of 50 gallons of water by flushing the toilet alone (not to mention showering, doing laundry, washing dishes, etc).
Low flow toilets are a great way to go green by saving on water while saving on money at the same time. The average low flow toilet uses about 1.6 gallons of water per flush. That is a savings of 5.4 gallons of water per flush, or up to 38 gallons of water per person per day! For a family of 4, that is a savings of more than 1,000 gallons of water each week!
