Homeowners across the nation are becoming more and more aware of energy efficiency and are looking for energy efficient solutions for their homes — whether they’re simply choosing LED light bulbs or they’re selecting a water-efficient toilet. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, each American uses an average of 88 gallons of water per day at their home, but when they install water-efficient fixtures and appliances, that number decreases at least 20 percent.
At Plumbing Solutions in Nashville, Tennessee, we’re all about being water efficient. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of our favorite water-efficient toilets for your home you can choose from. If you’re looking for a reliable 24 Hour Plumber or are in need of other plumbing services for your home, reach out to our team of professional plumbers today.
Read on in this blog post for more information on some of the top-rated toilets on the market right now that are best known for their water efficiency.
For reference: According to the organization Conserve H20, older toilet models can use anywhere between 3.5 and 7 gallons of water with each flush, but new federal regulations require that each flush only takes about 1.6 gallons of water per flush.
Toilet 1: The Niagara Stealth Toilet
The Niagara Stealth Toilet is one of our favorite water-efficient toilets for multiple reasons, but the top one is that it is the most affordable on this list. It’s a two-piece toilet that is known for its powerful flushing system with a flushing button that sits on top, and it cleans the bowl of the toilet using only 0.8 gallons of water for every flush.
Toilet 2: The Toto Neorest and Dual Flush Toilet
This is one of the pricier toilets on this list, but it’s basically a toilet from the future, featuring things you didn’t even think you could have or need in a toilet. It’s a single piece toilet, and it boasts a dual flush system that uses between 0.8 and 1 gallon of water per flush.
It is glossed over with SanaGloss glaze, which is resistant to bacteria and mold, minimizing the time you spend cleaning your toilet. It also features Electrolyzed water technology, which ensures the water remains clean with each flush, and there’s no lever or button to press to flush — it’s completely hands-free.
But that’s not all. The lid rises and closes automatically, and the seat features temperature control so you can heat your throne whenever you’d like. Cool…. right?
Toilet 3: The Aquia Dual Flush Elongated Two-Piece Toilet
This toilet is a good middle point for the two toilets we mentioned above in regards to pricing. It is a two-piece toilet that features a high profile tank and elongated seat, and it also boasts the SanaGloss glazing we mentioned above.
The flushing system for this toilet uses about 0.9 and 1.6 gallons of water to clean out your toilet bowl each flush.
