Down the drain
Every time a toilet is flushed, around 9 litres of water disappears down the drain. If each member in a family of four uses the household toilet three times a day that’s 108 litres of water!
What a waste
Over 70% of a household’s water use happens in the bathroom with toilet flushing account for 30% of this*. That’s a lot of wasted water!

How does it work?
