High Efficiency Toilets – The Modern Era in Indianapolis
Having determined in my last post that the water closets of old may not have flown over too well in Carmel, Fishers or Zionsville, we now ramp up to today.
In earlier American times the plumbing was still largely outside. The early cousin to the port-a-john that we see today was the outhouse. Much like the castle toilet we considered earlier, the outhouse was still a bit chilly in the winter, but eventually the toilet made its way indoors.
When plumbers and technology finally reached the place where it is today, the toilet moved inside the domicile and gained the ability to flush. But, nowadays with the concern about conserving water, even the basic flushing toilet isn’t enough.
Enter today’s high performance toilet. Since 1992, U.S. law has mandated that new toilets sold in the United States be low-flow or low-flush, which means that they consume no more than 1.6 gallons per flush. Before that time, typical toilets sold in the United States used 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush.
So now it’s low-flow or no go! But, that’s a good thing. Just remember that, as holds true in most things in life, you often get what you pay for. The same holds true with water closets.
So if you have a toilet that isn’t performing the way you’d like, it just might be time for you to give us a call.
