Toilet Flushing (at home)

Toilets use about 30% of the total water used in a household. An old style single flush toilet can use up to 13 litres of water in one flush.

New, more water-efficient dual-flush toilets use only six litres for a full flush and four litres with a reduced flush.

There are around 45 million toilets in UK homes, using an estimated two billion litres of fresh water every day. Over seven million of those toilets use 13 litres of water, and approximately five million are the latest low-flush models.

Water Efficient Toilets

Many toilets today feature a dual flush option to help you save water. These types of toilets have a split flush button giving the user the choice of pressing a small button or a large button depending on how much water is required to clear the toilet bowl. Look for dual flush toilets if you are considering purchasing a new toilet for your home.
