Why go high-efficiency?

The enactment of the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 1992 set minimum efficiency standards for toilets at 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) and showerheads and faucets at 2.5 and 2.2 gallons per minute (gpm) respectively. Since then, the plumbing industry has introduced high efficiency fixtures that further reduce water use. High efficiency toilets use no more than 1.28 gpf and showerhead and faucet flow rates have decreased to 1.5 gpm.

Switching to high efficiency fixtures has multiple benefits. In addition to conserving and protecting Miami-Dade County's water supply, reducing your water use also helps you save money and energy!

According to the Environmental Protection Agency:

  • With the installation of a high efficiency toilet, a household can reduce its water use by more than 4,000 gallons of water a year. A family of four can save more than $90 a year in reduced water bills and $2,000 over the toilet's lifetime.
  • With the installation of a high efficiency showerhead, the average family could save 2,900 gallons of water per year. If every family in the U.S. took this water saving step, each year 260 billion gallons of water could be saved.
  • With the installation of a high efficiency faucet, the average family could save 700 gallons of water per year. If a family in the U.S. took this water saving step, each year 4 billion gallons of water could be saved.
