How much water do you flush down the toilet daily?
6 to 10 flushes per day? at 1.6 gallons per flush.
Then multiply this times the number of family members living in the house.
For my household that makes about 80 gallons flushed per day.
That comes to about 2500 gallons flushed per month.
If I were to install a dual flush toilet we would only use .8 gallons for most flushes. That would cut our water usage to more than half our current rate.
So is it worth the price of a new dual flush toilet?
For those people on their own well-system, dual flush toilets would help conserve water during those dry months when rain is scarce. We get city water so the effect is limited.
Macustrade sells dual flush toilets with a price range of $280 to $690. If I were to rebuild my bathroom, I would consider putting in a dual flush. But to just change it to save water does not make economical sense right now. There are bigger wastes going on that need to be addressed and would have a much bigger impact on the bottom line.
