You have never asked yourself that? You have never given it a bit of thought?
Well, then I am a bigger eco geek than you, because I got all excited and HAD to blog today when I found this guide. It is a independent test of all of the low flush WC’s, or at least a place where you can download all of the tests and reports. It is test data divided into single flush gravity fed, single flush pressure assist, and duel flush, so you can download the testing for the kind of toilet you want to get. The research is sponsored by Canadian government agencies, and water conservation agencies and water utilties from the states. This means the testing and results are free of industry influence. Apparently the results are accurate due to the fact that “A soybean paste having similar physical properties (density, moisture content) to human waste was used in combination with toilet paper as the test media.” (Some one did that research, and then wrote that wonderful line as part of the report, I love scientists!!) It is so good to have real data to help you in making such an important decision!!
And when you replace your old water waster, don’t forget to recycle it, it could be made into a solid surface countertop, and they are actually pretty nice!
