WaterSense Toilets

WaterSense Certification LabelAccording the the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), toilet use accounts for 30% of all water used in the home. WaterSense, an EPA sponsored program, certifies toilets that can save 20% of household water use. To become certified, the toilets must go through meticulous laboratory testing and meet all WaterSense standards.

The EPA discusses the many ways to benefit from a WaterSense toilet, which include...
  • saving 4,000 gallons of water per year
  • using 20% less water per year
  • reducing water utility bills
  • rebates and vouchers for discounts on purchasing a WaterSense approved toilet
WaterSense toilets perform just as well, and many times, even better than regular toilets. There are also many options to chose from. Take a look at a few below.
