Dual Flush Toilet Reviews
I was motivated in my selection by a concern for water conservation, and I admit that there is some question in my mind about the trade off of the disposal of my perfectly good but waterhog old toilet and the water savings. I have not done the extensive research that would be required to determine the precise effect of my toilet replacement on our happy survival as a species, but since I am an architect I figured it was worth a bit of consumption to educate myself.
Below you will find a comparison of the two toilets that I chose. In summary, they are both fine, except for the problem of not enough water in the bowl to keep waste from smearing the porcelain. The solution to that problem might very well be a device called flushmate. This is a pressure assisted flushing system. According to the manufacturer it forces waste at 70 gallons/ minute, strong enough to clean the bowl with every flush. The pre-flush water level in the bowl is also higher, which helps keep the bowl clean as well. Many different toilet manufacturers offer the flushmate system at 1.6 gal/ flush, 1.0 gal/flush, or less. The flushmate website has links to them.
