Turn Any Toilet into a Dual Flush Toilet with Tap-n-Flush

dual flush toilet convertorIn some places, dual flush toilets are standard, and save water and money with every flush, but in most of the US, our wasteful toilets continue to send large volumes of clean municipal water down the drain when flushing liquids.

The bad news is that the toilet is the largest consumer of water inside homes, and is responsible for as much as 30% of indoor water consumption. The good news is, you don’t have to replace your toilet to save water, as there’s a quick and easy solution that can save as much as 70% of that water with every flush.

The Tap-n-Flush can convert any toilet to a dual flush toilet in just minutes, potentially saving a family of four up to $100 a year in water costs (and aside from reducing the water bill, it can conserve one of our most important resources, potable water).

Installing the dual flush convertor is quick and easy, and requires no tools or removal of toilet parts, no matter what type of flush valve is in the toilet. Yes, batteries are required (4 AA batteries), but they last up to 3 years, which means that any costs for purchasing batteries are quickly recouped.

“The Tap-n-Flush can convert old water wasting pre-1980 toilets (5 gallons per flush) to a reduced water usage of only 2.2 gallons per flush for a small flush and it converts new Low-Flow post-1990 toilets (1.6 gallons per flush) to use as little as 1.0 gallon per flush for a small flush (usage varies with toilet model).”

The cost for a Tap-n-Flush device is just $29.95 on Amazon, and the company offers free shipping for orders of 2 our more units, so converting your toilets into dual flush toilets is a cheap investment that can pay for itself year after year, while also reducing our personal water footprint. Tap-n-Flush also guarantees that their device will fit your toilet, or you’ll receive a full refund, and the company also donates 5% of their profits to Charity: Water to help bring access to safe drinking water to millions across the globe.
