What’s the Damage to the Wallet?

Dual flush toilets can vary in price, from affordable models starting at $200 to high-end ones that can set you back $1,000 or more. Installation costs are generally comparable to regular toilets, but remember—you’ll recoup some of that investment through water savings.

The Pros and Cons—Let’s Be Real

The Good Stuff:

Water Savings: These toilets can reduce water consumption by up to 67%. A win for the environment and your water bill!

Customizable Flush: Control the flush based on waste type. A smaller flush for liquid waste, a full flush for solids.

Tax Incentives: Some states offer tax benefits for installing water-saving fixtures. Hey, every little bit helps!

What to Keep in Mind:

Learning Curve: Some people need time to get used to the dual buttons.

Initial Costs: While not necessarily a con, the upfront cost may be higher than a traditional toilet.

Maintenance: More mechanics could mean a higher likelihood of needing repairs, although these toilets are generally quite reliable.
