Water is an essential resource to human survival. With this Pandemic all the humans across the globe are thinking of ways to have sustainable existence. This brings attention to saving water. The maximum amount of water used in our daily chores gets flushed through our drains. Researches suggest that we flush out more water in our toilet than in any other activity through the day.
Considering this wastage of water, people are thinking ways to minimize the water through the flush. There are options like half flush or low flow but that also wastes a considerable amount of water. It is seen that portable toilets save a lot of water and this is the reason behind the rise in its popularity. More and more people are opting for portable toilets for their domestic use.
125 million gallons of fresh water is saved annually in the US by just adopting portable toilets. Data released by the Environmental Protection Agency about the wastage of water suggests that maximum wastage happens while flushing.
However, a portable toilet gives an advantage of about 400 uses in a month with just 20 gallons of water. This is a huge saving as every flush in a low flow toilet costs about 1.6 gallon of water. The older ones are even worse as they take upto six gallons in each flush.
People are now opting for these toilets in their private properties and saving huge amounts of water. The saved water can be used for other purposes such as in the kitchen and to wash. Campgrounds are increasingly choosing these new technology portable toilets for the same reason.
