Positive effects of a high-efficiency toilet

Installing water-efficient fixtures, especially a high-efficiency toilet, saves money, supports the environment and adds dollar value to your home. With a variety of styles to choose from, upgrading from traditional flush toilets to high-efficiency models is easy.

Styles

According to the Southern Nevada Water Authority, there are three types of high-efficiency toilets (HETS): dual flush, pressure-assisted and gravity flush. Each style has advantages and drawbacks. The size of the household will determine which system conserves the most water and saves the most money on a monthly basis.

Dual-flush toilets incorporate the best of both worlds in terms of water conservation. With this model, users have the option of choosing between a pressurized system to remove liquid and a gravity-assisted system to dispose of liquid or solid waste. Some dual-flush models offer two push buttons on top of the tank or dual-flushing handles on the side of the tank.

The liquid-only flush uses significantly less water than the solid waste option. For example, an estimate of water usage per flush runs around 0.8 gallons for liquid waste and 1.6 gallons for solid waste.

Ultra low-flow toilets use approximately 0.8 gallons per flush regardless of liquid or solid removal. The low water flow works in conjunction with a pressurized vacuum process. Once the toilet is flushed, the force of the water on the trap creates additional suction to help pull liquid and solid waste from the bowl.

Urinals, rebates and more

Waterless urinals may seem like an odd choice for a residential bathroom at first look. But waterless urinals offer the ultimate in water conservation, putting these fixtures high on the eco-friendly list and making them very popular among green-living enthusiasts. These low-flow, high-efficiency toilets come in a variety of styles and colors, so they fit nicely into traditional bathroom decor. Estimates on water conservation run as high as 40,000 gallons per year, depending on the frequency of use.

Homeowners who install high-efficiency toilets may also qualify for state or county rebates, which only add to the savings on water bills and the property value increase.

Whichever style you choose, the advantages far outweigh any additional costs. For more high-efficiency toilet information, check out these facts from the Environmental Protection Agency.

He found the leak quickly and did a quality repair to a poorly joined pipe by the builder. I am very pleased with the work provided. He went the extra mile and also replaced the pine straw that was removed for the repair. Work was NOT cheap but I got what I needed - immediate response and repair. I recommend if you are in a pinch.

Steven was very knowledgeable and educated us on septic tanks. We luckily had gravel drainage so he recommended cleaning out our septic tank completely and putting biodegratible in the drainage field.

We luckily had gravel drainage so he recommended cleaning out our septic tank completely and putting biodegratible in the drainage field. He was here from 4:00-6:30 and explained everything to my husband. In the past when we had our septic tank pumped they did it incorrectly. I feel confident in Steven’s work and we have a 12 month guarantee. It was costly but for what he did worth every penny. Thank you Steven for your expertise job.
Steven was so awesome and very knowledgeable of the system that he taught me a lot. He did a good job alone and I would recommend and already did to someone else. I like the fact he drove a long way and there was no charge for him to come out! I will use him again in another 4-5 years if he...

Ken H was excellent! He was professional and efficient in diagnosing my problem with my water heater. He offered various options for replacement and went out of his way to get the job done the same day. I would highly recommend him and Rooter Plus!
Great customer experience, with experienced staff. I called the office for water leakage on Sunday morning and they schedule me with Technician arrival in 30 mins.

I called the office for water leakage on Sunday morning and they schedule me with Technician arrival in 30 mins. Jason reached on time, investigate the problem and able to find the source of leak in few minutes, which was definitely tricky and I believe only an expert eye like Jason can capture it. He walked me over the issue, fixed it and saved my Sunday morning. RooterPLUS is on my speed dial now for any plumbing issues.
It is usually unlikely that you see someone young working hard and have a good attitude along with it. Robert definitely displayed that while he was at work today and I had the pleasure to meet him and tell you about it. Keep up the good work Robert it will pay off!
