When you think about ways to upgrade your home, there are the “fun” upgrades like granite countertops and hardwood floors. However, other upgrades are more functional than fun, such as electrical or plumbing work. That’s what a low-flow toilet is—all work, no play.
Benefits of Low Flow Toilets
So, what are the benefits of upgrading to low-flow? Consider these five for starters.
- Water Conservation – Obviously, this is one of the biggest benefits of low-flow toilets. Saving water is good for the environment and can be a benefit locally and globally.
- Monthly Savings – If one of these toilets can help the environment and can help you save money on your water bill each month. That’s a win-win scenario. In many cases, these toilets may pay for themselves in just a couple of years.
- Today’s Low-Flows Are Better Than Ever – If you have avoided upgrading because you thought there would be more clogs or other issues, don’t fret! The toilets today usually come with a choice, allowing you to flush low-flow when appropriate and choose a full force flush when needed.
- Easy Retrofit – You don’t have to redo your entire bathroom to switch to a low-flow. In many cases, this is done with a simple retrofit kit.
- Helps with Resale – Once you decide to sell your home, you have a feature in place that you can advertise as good for the environment. That could be exactly what it takes to make the sale and get the price you want in resale.
With all these benefits, it only makes sense to consider this upgrade. If you have any questions about what it would take to install a low-flow toilet in your home, reach out to the residential plumbing services experts at Stahl Plumbing. We look forward to working with you!
