Benefits of a Low Flush Toilet

Benefits of a Low Flush Toilet

Have you considered replacing your toilet with a low flush toilet? A low flush toilet will help you save money while preserving the earth’s fresh water supply. A new toilet can spruce up an older bathroom, too, which can make the difference between a dingy-looking bathroom and a modern bathroom.

But how can a low flush toilet save you money?

Low Flush Toilet Savings

You know how you see all those commercials urging you to turn off your water while brushing your teeth? Your toilet is sinking away dollars every time you flush—in water bill costs. Older toilets require between 3.5-7 gallons of water every time you flush. Low flush toilets use 1.3 gallons of water per use (and some even less than that!), which means a 60%-80% savings, which you will see reflected in your water bill.

But… Is That Really Enough Water For Those Bigger Flushing Jobs?

If you’re worried about having enough momentum in your toilet, consider a dual flush toilet. No, you don’t have to flush your dual flush toilet twice for it to work right. Instead you’ll get two options—a low-flush and a more powerful flush—to make sure the job gets done every time.

Will You Just Have to Flush Twice as Much?

Actually, statistics show that flushing frequency does not increase with the installation of low flush toilets. That means, no, you will not be stuck flushing multiple times to have a clean toilet. You’ll just use less water, which is good for the world and good for your pocketbook.

Is Your Toilet a Low Flush Model?
