How Much Water
Does a Toilet Flush Use?

Shower water usage

With the advent of domestic water rates in Ireland it is useful to understand how much water we use when we engage in normal day-to-day activities. For example do you know how much water an average flush of the toilet uses? And how much does that cost in terms of Euro and Cents?

Toilet Flush Water Usage and Cost

Modern cisterns (those installed in the last ten years) use six litres per flush. Older toilets can use up to 12 litres. Using an average of eight litres per flush, and ten flushes per day, this uses 80 litres of water. At current Irish Water rates this will cost you €64 per year. This is almost definitely a conservative estimate for most households. Some estimates put the amount of all domestic water used by toilet flushing at a staggering 30%.
