Plumbing Toilets – Did you Know
Prior to 1980, gravity toilets were exceedingly inefficient consuming more than five gallons of water per flush (gpf). These old toilets used sheer quantities of water volume to scour solids from the toilet bowl, moving waste into the drain piping. However, between 1980 and 1992, manufacturers began improving the water efficiency of toilets, reducing consumption from 5 gpf, down to 3.5 gallons per flush. In 1992, President Bush, and Congress signed into law the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) requiring plumbing manufacturers to further reduce toilet flush volumes down from 3.5 gallons, to 1.6 gallons per flush, or a 54% reduction in water use. To achieve such a dramatic reduction in water consumption, manufacturers traded water volume for water velocity, and in some cases pressure. Increasing water speed assists reduced water quantities in cleanly moving solids from the toilet bowl into the drain waste plumbing. Toilet producers approached the problem of reduced water differently, some changed the shape of the bowl, others introduced a siphonic trap, and still others developed pressure assist toilets using compressed air. Each innovation resulted in less water volume per use, while maintaining flushing performance as measured by clearing of solids and clogging. The Alliance for Water Efficiency estimates 18.2 trillion gallons of water have been saved since the introduction of the EPAct. Since 1992, advancements continue to improve water efficiency of toilets with some high-efficient toilets (HETs) models operating on as little as 1.08 gallons per flush. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) now offers a WaterSense certification and label for HET toilets meeting a maximum of 1.28 gpf while still meeting other flushing performance standards including bowl surface cleaning, and drain line waste transport.
An initiative at Princeton University finds, the average household flushes the toilet 5 times per day, and nearly 27% of water used in a home is for toilet flushing. This means high-efficient toilets have the ability to save a lot of water and dollars. According to the EPA, replacing an old high water volume toilet, with a high-efficient wastersense certified toilet, can save 13,000 gallons of water annually, and save more than $140 per year.
