Caroma: Greening Your Home, One Flush at a Time

August 7th, 2011 | Posted by tjones in Green Products | Living Green | Water Conservation

You might be surprised at how much water your toilet consumes over time!  Fortunately for environmentally-conscious homeowners everywhere, companies like Caroma are leading the way in water conservation in the bathroom.

The United States EPA launched a partnership program in 2006 that seeks to promote water efficiency around the country.  According to Watersense, more than 240 millions Americans rely on public water consumption for their every day use, accounting for more than 43 billion gallons per day.  A family of four uses up to 400 gallons water per day on average.

The EPA reports that if the average home retrofitted itself with WaterSense certified toilets and faucets, we could save more than 120 billion gallons and more than $800 million dollars annually.

GREEN DEPOT SOLUTIONS

Green Depot carries Caroma brand toilets, including Caroma Dual-Flush toilets and sinks.

Caroma is a manufacturer with a history of water efficiency.  The company was founded in 1941, and has since become the market leader in reduced-flush water efficiency products, citing its “total commitment to water conservation.”

Dual-flush toilets give the user the ability to choose more or less water when needed, by pressing one of two distinct buttons.  Smaller flushes use about 0.8 gallons, and larger flushes use 1.2 – 1.6 gallons.  All Caroma products are certified by EPA-Watersense as a water-saving device.
