Toilets use more water than any other appliance or fixture in the home, with older toilets using between 3.5 and 7 gallons per flush. Replacing your old inefficient toilet with a low flush toilet will not only conserve water but it could save you hundreds of dollars annually.
Since 1994 federal law mandates that new household toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush. According to EPA figures, since 2006 American households have saved more than 4.7 billion dollars in water and energy bills by switching to more efficient toilets.
How Much Water do Low-Flow Toilets Actually Save?
One high efficiency toilet used by a family of four can save 8,760 gallons of water per year. Since 2006 low flow toilets have saved more than 287 billion gallons of water.
The EPA estimates that if all the inefficient toilets in homes were converted to high efficiency models Americans would save more than 640 billion gallons of water per year.
The average family of four will save about $20.00 a year by switching to a high efficiency toilet. Pair that with a rebate and you could save more than $100 a year. Check for your Arizona city specific water conversation rebates.
