More than 47% of water usage in most homes in America occurs in the bathroom, with nearly 30% coming from the toilet alone. Many homes are able to cut down on their water bill by following one of two of these simple steps.

How Your Toilet Can Save Your Water Bill

Fixing Cracks  & Leaks

Cracks and leaks can be the silent killer of your water bill, with a major amount of water waste coming from non usage. Cracks and leaks can drastically effect your water bill, and cause much damage and repair in the long term. Water leaks from a toilet can account for nearly 14% of daily water usage in an average American household. That is literally money down the drain, which you cannot account for.

High Efficiency Toilets

The amount of water your toilet uses per flush may vary greatly depending on how old your toilet is and the brand. Due to new plumbing industry standards, newer model toilets are allowed to use no more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush. Older models, much like the one in most family homes account for 3-5 gallons of water per flush. Some High Efficiency Toilets use as little as 1.28 gallons per flush or GPF. Ranging anywhere from $100- $600, a high efficiency toilet can save you thousands of dollars in the long term. To determine how much water your toilet uses, most companies post the GPF on the inside tank of the toilet. If your toilet is older than 1992 it is very likely you are not getting the best water usage as newer models. 

High Efficieny Toilets are very common on the market, and are very reasonable in price. Shopping around can help you determine the best prices and needs for you home.
