Water usage in toilets

By Nicolas Boisnic on August 28, 2013

Public toilets can account for 15 to 40 per cent of total water usage, depending on the type of business. A single toilet in a public amenity area is typically used 50 times per day, meaning savings of 50kL a year are readily achievable.

To better understand the water saving potential of toilets, it is important to understand the current system type in place at your facility. Various toilet flush types are presently used, including:

1. gravity tanks
2. flush valve operated systems
3. pressurised tanks

Savings per person 11 kL/year
