Dual Toilets Dual Toilets
If you are considering renovating your home or you are building a new home, one major consideration is the environment and going green. If this is the case you might want to consider installing dual toilets in your home.
How dual toilets work
Standard toilets work by using one flush to rid the basin of any waste. A dual toilet has two settings; one for liquid removal and one for solid removal. They have become popular in several countries and are frequently at use in municipal restrooms.
The settings on dual toilets are very easy to understand. With liquid waster removal, the handle is pushed to the first setting. For solid waste removal, the handle is further rotated to the second setting. The liquid waste removal setting uses approximately 0.8 gallons of water as compared to 1.6 gallons used for standard toilets.
Advantages of dual toilets
Dual toilets use about 50% less water per year than standard one-flush setting toilets, thus wasting less water and saving money on utility bills. Some states recognize the importance of conserving our natural resources and experience water shortages. Check your local jurisdiction on the rules, as some states offer rebates to those wishing to change or install a new dual-flush toilet.
