Super stingy toilets cut water use with each flush

Wherever water is at a premium, high efficiency toilets can help reduce water use.

At the 2015 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, William Strang, president of North American Operations for Toto, demonstrated the company's new one-gallon-per-flush toilets.

Strang said the ultra high-efficiency, gravity-fed 1.0 gallon-per-flush (gpf) toilets use Toto's Double Cyclone Flushing System. These toilets provide a 71-percent water savings when replacing a 3.5 gpf toilet. When replacing a 1.6 gpf model, they offer a 38-percent savings. When replacing a 1.28 gpf toilet, they provide a 22-percent savings. Low flow toilets are available in one-piece and two-piece models
