The bathroom is arguably the most important room in the house. Research has shown that people spend a significant portion of their lives in the bathroom, and as such what kind of toilet, tub and sink are in their bathroom actually makes a difference. On that note, things like walk in tubs, water efficient toilets and efficient sinks can help with saving water and saving money on utility bills.
One of the best ways to save money on water bills is to use modern toilets. On a side note, somewhat comically, there is a restaurant chain in Taiwan called Modern Toilet, which sells food and drink in bathroom themed toilets, bathtubs and urinals. Regardless, finding efficient toilets can be a challenge. However, switching to more water-efficient toilets can actually save homeowners up to $100 a year in water and wastewater bills.
With pressurized toilets, there is an inner tank in addition to the outer tank. The inner tank is completely sealed and when water is fed from the water line, the air inside the tank gets compressed. When the toilet is flushed, the water is forced outside with the pressure of the compressed air. This helps save water, as less water is used and the water that is used is used more economically.
The first American patent for a toilet was granted back in 1857. We’ve come a long way since outhouses, although finding efficient toilets is still a challenge for some homeowners and even commercially as well. Some business buildings look for more efficient toilets, which can help them save more money as there is more bathroom traffic in a business building than a typical family home.
At the end of the day, toilets are very important. Homeowners really care whether or not they have the right kind of toilet, and with the amount of time people spend in their lives in the bathroom and on the toilet, it makes a difference, and not only does it help people be more comfortable, it can save money.
