It was estimated by Northeastern University's Professor Vladimir Novotny at a 2010 conference presentation that, in the United States, 26 percent of the water used in a household is consumed by the flushing of a toilet. He further estimates that installing better functioning flushers may reduce that usage to only about 10 percent per household. At Fenwick Plumbing Jacksonville FL, we can help you evaluate your toilets to determine if they are high-efficiency units. We are also happy to provide you with recommendations to help conserve water per flush.

The plumbing in your house constitutes an entire system and every part of that system has to be compatible with every other part of that system. This is something that a professional needs to be consulted with to ascertain properly.
