WaterSense toilets are fantastic fixtures that allow homeowners to save a lot of water and lower their ecological impact. While dual flush toilets are affordable, most people don't want to throw out a perfectly good toilet in order to reap the benefits. That is understandable and is the reason that the Fort Myers plumbers at the Pipewright, experts in green plumbing technologies, advise consumers to look into purchasing a dual flush conversion kit for their existing toilet. These water saving devices are very affordable, some costing under $20, and easy to install by yourself.
Dual flush toilets allow you to choose a different flush for liquid wastes and solid wastes. Depending on the age of your toilet, you could save up to seventy percent of the water you are currently using. Even if your existing toilet is relatively new, the savings can be substantial. The EPA has estimated that the typical household, 3 persons, can save about twenty gallons of water each and every day with a selectable flush toilet. That might not seem to be a lot, but when you start to do the math and factor in the population of the United states, the potential annual savings would be hundreds of billions of gallons of water.
So, start looking into the possibilities today. There are many manufacturers of dual flush kits and finding one will not be very difficult. But keep in mind that, as with most thing, some work better than others. Before you buy one, do take the time to visit the online retailer of your choice and read the reviews. Let the experiences of others help you choose a good one and help you troubleshoot any installation problems that you might encounter. The savings in both monthly water costs and the positive ecological impact will be worth the time and effort.
