4 Benefits of a Dual Flush Toilet

Dual Flush

Dual flush toilets are categorized as High-Efficiency Toilets (HET). They are different from the ordinary single flush toilets because they come with two handles or two buttons to release different levels of water. While the high-volume flush uses up to 1.6 gallons of water, the low-volume flush uses 0.8 to 1 gallon of water. This is so low compared to the 8 gallons of water used by the traditional toilet flush. It also relies on gravity to flush down waste from the toilet. Installing a dual flush toilet can be very beneficial, both financially and environmentally. These benefits include:

1. Money Saving

Water usage is essential and holds a huge part of the household costs. Since you can choose to either use the low volume flush or the high volume flush, you will end up using fewer gallons of water as opposed to the conventional toilets that release the same amount of water during every flush. Lower water usage in your home saves you money on your monthly water bills.

2. Low Maintenance

Since these toilets use gravity to remove waste, their designs help to avoid clogging. Therefore, you will avoid all the headaches of plumbing and plunging, thus leading to low maintenance costs.

3. Environmental Conservation

The use of low-volume flush when flushing liquid waste and high-volume flush when flushing solid waste allows for the conservation of water. Water is increasingly becoming a scarce resource hence everyone is encouraged to preserve it. Therefore, installing this type of toilet goes a long way in preserving the environment

Final Word

Installing a dual flush toilet is more or less the same process as installing the conventional toilets. Replacing your conventional toilet with a dual flush may seem expensive now, but it will save you money in the future. Better still, our team can install converter kits that can turn your toilet into a dual flush.

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
