More plumbing products are earning the Environmental Protectino Agency's (EPA) WaterSense label each year. From EPA, here are some numbers of note to help entice your clients into upgrading some of their fixtures.
$90: Average annual savings a family of four could see by upgrading to a high-efficiency toilet (HET). Homes built before 1992 may still have 3.5 gallon-per-flush (gpf) toilets. Upgrading to an HET with 1.28 gpf would be a savings of over 60%.
3,000: Gallons of water a faucet can waste in a year if it drips at a rate of once per second
200: Gallons of water a leaky toilet can waste in just one day. The EPA says that a toilet leak can be detected by placing a drop of food coloring in the tank. If the color shows up in the bowl without flushing, there’s a leak.
