Older toilets (like those installed before 1994) can use between 13 to 20 litres of water per flush. An average person flushes the toilet 5 times per day. Replacing a high-volume toilet is one of the best ways to reduce water use and save money.
New toilets are very efficient. WaterSense guidelines make single flush toilets use only 4.8 litres or less. Dual flush toilets use 6 litres, with a reduced flush of 4.1 litres or less.
Never use the toilet as a garbage bin! Items can block your home's plumbing system and lead to costly repairs for both you and the City. Find out what goes where!
