Water conservation Charlottesville
Did you know? –> A typical household uses 185 to 300 gallons of water a day and the majority of it goes down the drain from the toilet and the shower. Updating your commodes will serve as a conservation effort while lowering your water bill.
Today’s toilets use less water, prevent staining and resist clogging better than the older toilets and you might be surprised at how easy they are to install. Replacements generally cost from $100 to $300.
Toilets made in the 1950’s used, on average, seven gallons per flush. Compare that with one that only uses 1.6 gallons per flush and it’s a big saving. Multiply by the times a toilet is flushed in a year and the number of toilets in your home and it will save a lot of water, greatly helping your water conservation Charlottesville.
