Tenant Restroom

Restrooms provide many opportunities to save water. Use low flow aerators on lavatories (.5 gpm), low flow showerheads (2.5 gpm), and dual flush toilets (0.8/1.6 gpf) or low flow toilets (1.2 gpf). Waterless urinals save significant amounts of water, but require slightly different maintenance regimes, so custodial staff must be trained to maintain them properly. Automatic sensors on lavatories can also result in savings, but automatic flushes on toilets often result in double flushing and are not recommended. Look for durable, water resistant and easily cleanable finish materials with additional green features, such as partitions with recycled content or flooring made from natural linoleum.
