  • Why go high efficiency?

    Toilets

    A household can reduce its water use by more than 4,000 gallons a year with the installation of a high-efficiency toilet. A family of four can save more than $90 a year in reduced water bills and $2,000 over the toilet's lifetime.

    Showerheads

    After the toilet, the shower is the largest water user in the home, consuming up to 30 percent of total household water.

    Using a high-efficiency showerhead can save up to 2,900 gallons of water in one year for the average family.

    Water-wasting showerheads have flow rates of five to eight gallons per minute. Using this type of fixture would send about 25 to 40 gallons of water down the drain and into the sewer during a five-minute shower.

    By contrast, high-efficiency showerheads use only 1.5 gallons per minute, or 7.5 gallons for a five-minute shower, reducing water demand by at least 50 percent.

    Faucets

    With the installation of a high-efficiency faucet, the average family could save 700 gallons of water per year. If every family in the United States took this water-saving step, four billion gallons of water could be saved each year.
