WaterSense Makes It Easy to Save Water and Protect the Environment

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has introduced a new label that will help consumers be both water smart and dollar smart. The program’s goal is to “protect the future of the water supply by promoting water-efficient products and services.” Beginning this year the label will be found on a variety of high efficiency plumbing equipment . According to the EPA, “the average American home uses more water for flushing the toilet than running the shower. A family of four could save 16,000 gallons of water a year by replacing its traditional toilet with a high-efficiency model, a big savings in dollars as well as droplets. Visit the EPA site for products, partners, and ways to save water.”

  1. If you are serious about saving water, want a toilet that really works and is affordable, I would highly recommend a Caroma Dual Flush toilet. Caroma toilets offer a patented dual flush technology consisting of a 0.8 Gal flush for liquid waste and a 1.6 Gal flush for solids. Caroma, an Australian company set the standard by giving the world its first successful two button dual flush system in the nineteen eighties and has since perfected the technology. Also, with a full 3.5? trapway, these toilets virtually never clog. All of Caroma’s toilets are on the list of WaterSense labeled HET’s http://www.epa.gov/watersense/pp/find_het.htm and also qualify for several rebate programs currently available as well as LEED points. Please go to http://www.caromausa.com for more detailed information or visit http://www.ecotransitions.com/howto.asp to see why they actually work better than any US toilet.
