More Information: Install low-flow toilets
 Money Saver!Takes some effort!

You'll use 1.6 gallons per flush compared to a standard toilet which used 3.5 gallons. For an investment of about $145-$165, you'll see big long-term savings on your water bill.

If you're not ready to take that step yet, put a few bricks in the tank of your toilet to reduce water used.

The average American household generates 75,000 gallons of waste water every year. According to the Rocky Mountain Institute, much of what we consider as wastewater from sinks, showers, baths and dishwashers could safely be reused in toilets. Since as much as 45 percent of the water we use is flushed down the toilet, this could significantly reduce household water consumption.
