From Redfin:

“This is kind of silly, but… who would have guessed that Washington, DC ranks #2 in the nation when it comes to number of residential toilets per capita? According to a new report from Redfin real estate brokerage, there are 98 loos for every 100 people in the DC metro area. DC was topped only by Boulder Colorado, which leads the nation with an estimated 102 toilets per resident.

DC ranks third, behind LA and Chicago, in terms of water consumption based on a day’s worth of flushes. 144.8 Olympic-sized swimming pools could be filled with the water used in a day’s worth of flushes in the DC area.

Redfin real estate brokerage arrived at this list by looking at the most recent household and population data from the American Community Survey, along with county recorder data about the number of toilets present in each residence.”
