  • Toilets

    Help reduce water usage without sacrificing performance.

WaterSense® labeled toilets

Toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30% of an average home’s indoor water consumption.

Recent design advancements have allowed toilets to use 20% less water than the current federal standard while still providing equal or superior flushing power.

So, you can reduce your water consumption without compromising performance by purchasing products with the WaterSense® label. It is used only on toilets that are certified by independent laboratories to meet rigorous criteria for product performance and water efficiency.

Upgrading to WaterSense®

Replacing a standard 1.6 gallon-per-flush toilet with a new WaterSense® labeled high efficiency model can reduce water use by 20% or more. Replacing a pre-1994 model (3.5 gallon-per-flush toilet) can reduce it by 60% or more. That's more than 4,000 gallons per person per year. That would save enough water to wash 100 loads of laundry.

From water-efficient bathroom fixtures to water-conserving dual-flush toilets, bathrooms are increasingly designed with eco-friendly features in mind. It’s easy to see why bathrooms are going green. Bathrooms require the largest amount of water usage in most homes, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Going green in the bathroom not only helps the environment, it also helps your wallet.
