According to the Environmental Protection Agency's WaterSense program, each U.S. household could lower its annual water and sewer bill by as much as $170 by installing a high-efficiency toilet. Visit www.epa.gov/watersense for a list of WaterSense-approved toilets, or try other low-flow models listed here.
With a contemporary design and low profile, the Prestigio 4 is attractive both for its style and water efficiency. The one-piece, pressure-assisted toilet uses just 1.1 gallons of water per flush. The maker says the water savings can qualify most buyers for water conservation rebates. Other features include the Sloan Flushmate IV flushing system, SmartClose toilet seat, a push-button actuator, and three color options.
Offering the lowest water use of any toilet in America, according to the maker, the Sydney Smart dual-flush toilet uses just 0.8 gallons per flush, with an optional larger flush of 1.28 gpf. One of 36 WaterSense-approved toilets in the Caroma line, Sydney Smart is available in white or biscuit in 305 and Easy Height models.
Go clean and green with the Concealed Tank Carrier System, which hides the steel frame for wall-mounted toilets behind the wall, leaving only a dual-flush actuator visible.
