Sustainability

Water is a dwindling natural resource that is gaining increasing importance throughout the world due to drought and other scarcity concerns. The standard flow rate for water closets set by the EPA in 1992 is 1.6 GPF. Caroma toilets use as little as half as much water averaging as low as 0.8 GPF. In big buildings this can mean 100,000s or even millions of gallons of water saved per year.

Financial Savings

In many scenarios a Caroma retrofit can result in an ROI under 2 years. This depends on local water costs, existing fixture flow rates and labor costs. In NYC, for example, water costs $10/1,000 gallons and many buildings still use older 3.5 GPF toilets.
