Renovating things around my home is something that I have always done in one way or another and the current remaining project is the hall bathroom as we are replacing the toilet for a new one. I have been contemplating this for quite some time and I just made the decision to go ahead and invest in a dual flush mode as I have heard from countless people that they are the absolute best option to have at the moment. I know that my friends and colleagues have been raving about them for years and my only regret is that I had not invested in them sooner since I have read about how much money they can save you in the long run on your utility bills.
Of course, before I decided on a brand to invest in, I was advised to check out sites for the best toilet reviews, as well as sites that featured the best composting toilet brands, which were quite numerous, I have to admit. Once I had reviewed these sites, I was able to discern which were the most popular models based on reviews left by previous users and their recommendations. I already know that dual flush options reduce water used, save resources, and ultimately lower water bills. I understand also that the Environmental Protection Agency has a scheme for certification for those toilets that are currently using 80% or less of 1.6 GPF per federal regulations. I mean, why waste water when flushing if there is a better solution out there? The following toilets are the ones I discovered to provide the best for most households.
AMERICAN STANDARD TOILET
With a 1.0 gallon per flush for a partial flush and 1.6 gallons per flush for a full one, the American Standard H20 options operated by two chrome plated push buttons at the top of your tank. Thanks to its Siphonic flushing, you get highly efficient action, with the H20 Option meeting specifications and is certified by WaterSense. Some users note that this model is not compliant with the ADA, but it is, however, flushed tested to the 100% level by the factory before it is shipped out and I love the fact that it comes with a warranty of five years as it gives users more security about investing in a product.
TOTO WASHLET WITH INTEGRATED TOILET MODEL
Described as a single piece, compact, skirted toilet with combined bidet, this is one of few on the market that meet all ADA regulations, but there are some reviews I read that showed that previous users noted that it did not meet the requirements of levered flushing. This issue is circumvented, however, via a flushing mechanism that operates automatically and this technologically advanced toilet has receive dits certification by WaterSense.
Not to be overlooked is the Tornado flushing system that utilizes nozzles that come in a series to elevate the flushing capability and use only minimal water. These features ensure that the toilet bowl remains cleaner for longer and means you won’t have to worry as much about cleaning it manually every few weeks or months. The lid both closes and opens automatically, which triggers the automatic flush. Some users also note how they love that it comes with a heated seat and that the bidet adjusts for both direction and temperature.
KOHLER WELLWORTH DUAL FLUSH TOILET
You save floor space on this dual flush toilet that is rounded and thus suitable for small bathrooms and even powder rooms. Just because it is slightly smaller than other options, that does not compromise the efficiency of flushes. In fact, it boasts a Class 5 flush system which removes lots of waste with one flush and it still is certified by the EPA for consuming low levels of water. Kohler has long been known as a brand that produces some of the best toilets on the market, and this model can remove waste using only 1.28 gallons of water per flush. This alone makes it stand out as a top choice for consideration. Some users may complain about the price, but it is still one of the more affordable options and comes highly recommended.
