Saving Money by Switching Out Your Toilet
We are charged for "city" water twice. Once as it goes through the water meter and then again to dispose of it. You will see the charge marked "sewer" and it ranges in price from roughly the same amount as the water to over twice the amount charged for fresh water. Since the toilet accounts for about 30% of water used for household use, reducing the amount of water needed for flushing can significantly reduce your water bill. Over years, it can actually pay for the cost of a new low "flow" toilet. Add to that, some municipalities or utility companies pay you rebates as incentives to make the change.
Types of "low flow" toilets include dual flush (1.0 gals per flush for #1 and 2.8 Gals per flush for #2), pressure assisted, which uses the incoming water pressure to help blow the bowl clean, "Dual Cyclone" models which mimic the old swirl inside the bowl that helped keep it clean and others by different names and manufacturers.
