Water efficient toilets

Toilets account for over 20% of a household’s yearly water usage so by buying the most efficient toilet possible, you can make significant water and dollar savings. The WELS rating allocated to toilets will tell you exactly how much water is used per flush and grade its efficiency in stars, the more stars the better. Dual flush toilets help save a lot of water - they are compulsory for new buildings in most states and as an incentive to replace older toilets, there are also rebates available in some states.
