Dual Flush toilets save water and money

Flushing a toilet is one of the major uses of water in the home, accounting for up to 30% of all water usage.

A single flush toilet can use up to 13 litres of water per flush and over seven million of these are installed in UK homes.

Reports indicate that using a dual flush as opposed to a standard system can actually save 70 per cent of water usage than a standard flush.

The dual flush is designed specifically to save water by giving you the option to flush for solid or liquid waste. For liquid waste a minimal amount of water will be used compared to the larger flush, therefore you can choose the appropriate flush each time you go, instead of using a full tank flush when its not required.

Over 50 per cent of water can still be saved even with the full flush option, which uses just 6 litres, while the half flush will use just 4 litres.

The water saving is so big that some countries suffering from water shortages have even passed laws to make sure dual flush systems are installed to help reduce the amount of unnecessary waste. And with emphasis on the environment still a priority, you can do your bit for the environment while also saving on your water bills.

The dual flush comes in an array of models and designs, and companies who have realised their popularity are competing to make them look as nice as they can. Modern and novel designs, there will be something to suit everyone’s tastes – another positive for choosing them with your new system.

One important point to note is that the systems can be difficult to install, as they are more complicated than a standard toilet installation. This just means you will need to ensure you get a professional and qualified plumber to install it, ensuring it is done correctly and hassle free.

Being more environmentally aware is extremely important at a time when natural resources are constantly strained. Reserving what we have is essential and, although initial installation costs will be higher than a standard system, in the long run the water savings and cost savings you will make year on year will outweigh the early outlay.
