Water is one of the most precious natural resources we use in and around our home and community. As an individual and community value, conservation can manifest itself through choices made on how we use water through technology, habits and practices. University of Arizona Cooperative Extension (UACE) offers extensive programs, literature and assistance to homeowners and community members on wise water use through workshops, brochures, programs, presentations, classes, websites and individual assistance.
All toilets manufactured after 1993 are called ULFT (Ultra Low Flush Toilets). They use 1.6 gallons per flush. Toilets that were manufactured in 1979 or earlier use 5 gallons per flush, and from 1980 to 1993 use 3.5 gallons per flush. A new generation of toilets that use less than 1.6 gpf are now on the market. They are called "High Efficiency Toilets" or HETs.
