Tips

O+M Tips

  • Use cleaning chemicals and solutions that are Green Seal certified
  • A two-step process should generally be used if cleaning with antimicrobial products. Clean first and then apply the disinfectant. Wait the recommended time before rinsing (usually at least 10 minutes); perform other tasks while waiting for the antimicrobial to take effect. Most disinfectants are not cleaners, and are usually only effective on a clean surface.

End of Life Tips

  • If in good condition, toilets can be donated to organizations like Habitat for Humanity that will reuse them.
  • To recycle old toilets visit Earth 911 http://earth911.com/ to determine the capacity of local facilities.

For alignment with LEED Standards

  • Water Use Reduction: Employ strategies that in aggregate use at least 20% less water than the water use baseline. toilets with a flush rate of less than 1.6 gpf can contribute to the water use reduction.
