Learning About Dual Flush Toilets

January 21, 2016

You probably thought a toilet was just a toilet. You probably thought that exciting things never happen in the toilet world. That is probably because you have never heard about dual flush toilets. These innovative toilets have actually been around for a few years, but they are starting to gain more popularity than ever. You may be asking yourself, what exactly is a dual flush toilet? What are the benefits of owning one, and what do I have to do to get one?

Dual Flush Basics

Dual flush toilets are exactly what they sound like! They are toilets which can perform two different flushes. Each of these flushes delivers a different amount of water to the toilets. There is a low-volume flush option, and a high-volume flush option. Flushers decided the type of flush they want depending on the waste they need to dispose of. Most dual flush toilets feature an elegant button design in which you can select the type of flush using a single button.

Why a Dual Flush Toilet?

Was your first thought upon hearing about dual flush toilets, “So what? Big Deal?” The benefit of dual flush toilets is that they can lower the amount of water that a toilet uses by over 50 percent! That is huge amount of savings. The low-volume flush option can be used most of the time, and it delivers a fraction of the water that a high-volume flush delivers. The water savings is so significant that some countries like Australia have passed laws stating that all new toilets must be dual flush toilets.
