Should I be looking for a toilet with a small tank so it uses less water?

    A low-flow toilet can help you save a lot of water each year.  Toilets consume an average of 20 gallons of water, per person, per day. Upgrading to a low-flow toilet (1.6 gallons per flush) you can lower your annual water usage from 27,300 gallons to 12,500 gallons per person!

    Another alternative is dual-flush toilets. This type of toilet uses different amounts of water for different kinds of waste. Liquid waste requires less water than solid waste,and on top of that the whole system just uses less water in general because it uses a different mechanism than standard toilets. Thus, it is possible to save up to 68 percent more water with a dual-flush toilet than “a conventional low flow toilet.”

    If you don’t want to invest in a new toilet, though, you can also fill up a plastic bottle with water and leave that in the tank. This method is an easy way of using less water per flush on a standard toilet.
