Caroma Celebrates Earth Month With 50% Off Promo

April 16, 2010

Caroma announces the “One Flush Makes a Difference” promotion in honor of Earth Month. Until the end of April, customers can visit www.caromausa.com/oneflush to receive a coupon for 50% off the list price of any Caroma toilet at participating retail locations.  

All Caroma dual-flush toilets include two buttons for flushing; the half flush which uses 0.8 gpf for liquid, and the full flush which uses 1.28-1.6 gpf (depending on the model) for solids. They also come in a variety of stylish modern designs that add to the décor of any bathroom. 

For customers looking to learn the potential advantages of installing a high efficiency toilet, Caroma offers free downloadable water saving and conservation calculating files at  www.caromausa.com/calculator. Using these files, the following examples were created to illustrate the effectiveness of high efficiency toilets:     

  • If one person uses a high efficiency toilet for one year, they can save approximately 330 gallons of water (based on the average three times a day flush). If the toilet is from the 1980s, when new toilets were regulated to use 3.5 gallons of water per flush, 2,410 gallons per year could be saved by switching to a HET toilet.
       
  • If five people replaced their old 3.5 gpf toilet, over 12,000 gallons of water or the equivalent of 300 twenty-minute showers could be saved.

       
  • If 2,000 people with new toilets switched to a HET toilet, in one year an Olympic sized swimming pool could be filled with the water saved: 660,430 gallons!

       
  • If 50% of the 238 million toilets in the U.S. that are high-flow (3.5 gallons per flush or more) were converted to a dual flush toilet, 1.4 trillion gallons of water could be saved per year!

    “Caroma feels so strongly about water conservation that we are happy to offer customers 50% off our highly efficient dual-flush toilets during Earth Month,” stated Derek Kirkpatrick, Caroma North America General Manager. “Caroma believes one flush can make a difference in the world and we’re committed to proving it.”
