Did you know that you could save between 30-50% of your toilet’s water usage for only $79? Me neither. Most toilets in use today are single-flush versions, meaning that no matter how much waste you put in the toilet the same amount of water is used to flush it away. That doesn’t really make sense to me when liquid waste requires so little water and solid waste requires more – why do we send the same amount of fresh water down the toilet with each? At a minimum of 1.6 gallons per flush, over 55 BILLION gallons of fresh water are flushed each day into the sewer. That’s a lot of wasted water! The toilets in my apartment are 1.6 GPF units as well, but because they are single-flush, I went looking for something simple I could install on them to make them dual-flush…and I think I found a good one.
The Perfect Flush from Brondell says that it can reduce the amount of water you use in your toilet by up to 50%, is easily installed in a few minutes, and saves you from having to buy a new dual-flush toilet that would cost a lot more. At $79 bucks, if this works as well as they say it does, it’s almost a no-brainer to install in the house. What do you think? Or do you already have a dual-flush toilet? Not sure why every toilet made and installed isn’t already a dual version, but hopefully someday they will be.
Might have to give this a shot after the holidays.
And no, in case you are wondering, they didn’t contact me to write about them – I just dig the idea. You guys know I always tell you when a company sends something along!
