  • Pay more attention to flushing

Keep in mind that flushing takes up a large amount of water. It is a good idea to install a low-flow toilet bowl. Standard toilets use about 7 to 10 liters for each flush. Professional plumbers states that only 6 liters is used by low-flow models for each flush. Given that an average individual tends to flush at least 5 times every day, you can understand the number of liters can save.

  • Adjust your toilet float

According to our experienced plumbers, an improperly adjusted float can be a common leak source. It keeps the fill valve running in case of a full tank. It is easy to detect the issue, given that the valve is not shut off fully and a spillage of water into the overflow tube can be easily identified. In the scenario that that the armature of your flush tank has a ball float, you can make the armature longer by rotating it or unscrewing the ball to reduce the water level, therefore reducing water consumption.

  • Use a fill cycle diverter

This component works via diversion of some water into the tank rather than the bowl, during flushing. This can help fill up the bowl much faster and save you as much as 1.9 liters of water in each flush.
