Simple solutions to reduce water consumption at home
(NC) According to Environment Canada, a standard toilet uses approximately 18 litres of water per flush. Assuming that each person uses four flushes per day that translates into nearly 30,000 litres per person per year. For a family of four, that's nearly 120,000 litres of water per year. Instead of opting for the traditional expensive and labor-intensive plumbing renovation, homeowners should consider an eco-friendly alternative such as a macerating toilet.
Products such as Saniflo's Sanicompact can cut water consumption significantly. The unit reduces water consumption though a dual flush system, making it perfect for the green-minded user. It uses only four litres of water per flush, saving approximately 24,000 litres of water per person. For a family of four, this saves approximately 96,000 litres per year.
It's also an easy and cost-effective solution. With simple renovation requirements, no need to break the concrete or do intensive construction, the Sanicompact not only helps the environment, but also increases the value of any home or commercial space.
