The standard flow for a toilet – not something you think about regularly, is it?
But now that low-flow toilets are pretty much the norm, should you upgrade yours to sell your home?
Should You Upgrade to Low-Flow Toilets to Sell Your Home?
Back in the early 1990s, low-flow toilets became the norm. Toilets that use 1.6 gallons of water per flush are standard now, but are they worth installing in your home just to sell it?
In most cases, yes – provided that you’re looking to sell faster, and not necessarily recoup the costs at the closing table.
Here’s the deal: toilets account for about 30 percent of indoor water usage, and the average person flushes about five times per day. If you switch to a low-flow toilet, the people who buy your home could save about $110 per year, according to the EPA. Buyers love learning about savings – but you may not get all your investment back when you close, because it’s one of the features buyers have learned to expect.
