Recycling Your Old Toilet?
Some toilets use a lot of water — 3 ½, 5, or even 7 gallons with every flush. If you're trying
to improve your home's water efficiency, replacing a toilet is a good place to start.
Did you know WaterSense approved toilets use only 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf)? Here are
two great reasons to purchase a WaterSense toilet right now:
Save More Than Water
- Selecting the right toilet is easy, thanks to WaterSense — a program sponsored by the
Environmental Protection Agency. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are certified by independent
laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only
toilets that complete the certification process earn the WaterSense label.
- The City of Tigard is offering up to a $60 per toilet reimbursement (maximum of 2 per household)
to your water bill when you
replace your old water guzzling toilets with a new WaterSense model.
A WaterSense labeled toilet can save you water and money. For example, replacing a 3.5 gpf toilet
with a 1.28 gpf WaterSense labeled toilet could save as much as 4,000* gallons per person per year.
For a family of 4, your new toilet could pay for itself in just over a year!
*Based on the national estimate of 5 flushes per person per day.
