It took me a while to decide which toilet to buy. We first grabbed a toilet with a dual flush with differing gallons per flush for solid waste and liquid waste. On our way to the check-out, there was a display of two other toilets that were not in the toilet aisle. The one on display was a .8 gallon per flush toilet! We ended up going home with that one – Glacier Bay 2-Piece Ultra High-Efficiency Elongated Toilet in White Model # N7717B/N7715T SKU # 169564. I picked one that was EPA approved with a WaterSense sticker. It was going for $150.
This toilet was $50 more than what I originally picked, but 1.2 gpf vs .8 gpf was worth the $50 to me. Over time it will save a lot of water. Toilets consume a lot of water for every flush. According to the EPA, toilets are second to outdoor water use. Since people don’t just change out their toilets unless they were ratty to begin with, I want to make sure that several years down the road when even more efficient toilets are being sold, my toilet is still doing a good job conserving water.
Here is a video about the toilet! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBRH-H-Sg2E
