Water-Saving Toilets

Sign #7 – Water Efficiency - Next time you have to go, you’ll save how many gallons of water by going in this building?

Low-flow toilets and waterless urinals in the PS building save 80,811 gallons of water per year on the SBVC campus. In the men’s restrooms, waterless urinals alone can save an average of 20,000 to 45,000 gallons of water per year. That difference represents a 20-30% water reduction over a traditional urinal every single year.
