How To Be Green With A New-Fangled Toilet
HOW TO BE GREEN WITH A NEW-FANGLED TOILET
Changing your inefficient toilet to one that uses less water can save up to $2,000 for a family of four over the lifetime of the toilet. In addition to the water flushed with routine use, toilets are often the culprits for leaks and other wastefulness. When it’s time to replace our old toilet, consider these options:
Dual-Flush – Even if you don’t want to replace your whole toilet, ktis are available to convert your old toilet to a dual-flush. This option allows you to use less water for liquid-only and more water for solid wastes.
High-Efficiency – These toilets use less water than government standards. For example, in the United States, toilets with the WaterSense label use 20 percent less water than those that simply meet federal standards. For an average family of four, a WaterSense toilet can save 4,000 gallons (15,000 L) of water a year.
Composting – A Form of toilet that’s designed to use little to no water, a composting toilet uses the natural process of decomposition. These systems incorporate sawdust or peat moss to absorb odors and aid the decomposition process. Composting toilets are often a good choice for areas without service.
