Water saving toilets

In this blog post, you'll learn how to minimize your water consumption by using water-efficient toilets. We'll cover key points from the book Dry Run: Preventing the Next Urban Water Crisis.

💧 Understand your water consumption

The first step to minimizing your water consumption is to understand how much water you actually use. A conventional toilet uses about 6 liters of water per flush. If you flush 5 times a day, that's 30 liters. In a year, that adds up to over 10,000 liters just for the toilet!

🚽 Choose a water-saving toilet

Water-saving toilets can reduce water consumption per flush to about 3 liters. There are several models on the market, such as dual flush or flush-stop systems. Find out about the different options and choose the one that best suits your needs.

💰 Consider the costs

A water-saving toilet can be more expensive to purchase than a traditional toilet. However, you will save money in the long run as your water bill will be significantly lower. Calculate how long it will take to pay off the investment.

🛠️ Install the toilet

Installing a water-saving toilet is no more complicated than installing a conventional toilet. You can hire a plumber or do it yourself if you are handy. Make sure the toilet is installed correctly to avoid water loss.

🔄 Maintain the toilet regularly

To ensure that your toilet continues to save water, you should maintain it regularly. Check the seals and the level of the cistern. If you notice that the toilet is using more water than it should, it might be time to replace some parts.

🌍 Think about the environment

By using a water-efficient toilet, you're not only doing something for your wallet, but also for the environment. Fresh water is a limited resource and should be used as efficiently as possible. Every liter you save helps prevent the water crisis.
