Toilets That Flush Well

Toilets That Flush Well

In an attempt to conserve water, a 1994 federal law mandated the use of toilets that utilized 1.6 gallons per flush.  The consumer, who had grown accustomed to the previously available 3.5 gallon toilet, was now faced with a product that didn’t always “do the job”.  In certain circumstances, consumers found it necessary to flush two to three times in comparison to the one flush required with the ever faithful 3.5 gallon toilet.  The idea of the 1.6 gallon toilet was good in theory; however, in practice, it did not work.


     One of the reasons for the lack of output of the original 1.6 gallon toilets was the engineering.  At the time of the implementation of this new law, manufacturers did not have an efficient design to remove solid waste with only 1.6 gallons of water.  Today’s toilets are much improved.  However, as with any product, some perform better than others.


     Two recommended manufactures are the Toto and Gerber.  Any Toto model with the G-Max flushing system will perform better, as will the Viper in the Gerber line. The Toto is available in numerous designs to match any décor while the Vipor is a contemporary design. Both are efficient, reliable products.
