Water conservation is one of the most fundamental ways to improve our environment, and one of the biggest water users in your home is the toilet. That’s aggravated by the fact that there are still tens of thousands of the old three and a half gallon toilets out there using even more water than necessary.

But, if you’ve priced the new water saving toilets, you know you’ll have to spend several hundred dollars to replace each toilet in your home.

The solution may be a simple conversion kit. It replaces the inner workings and handle of an existing toilet, and converts it into a dual flush unit. These kits cost about thirty dollars each, so converting the whole house is more feasible, and the whole process usually takes less than 15 minutes, and you can do it all yourself.
