ecoTransitions Inc., a Watersense Partner, has partnered with Caroma USA to distribute WaterSense labeled high-efficiency toilets (HET) in Georgia.February 2008 – ecoTransitions encourages Georgians to actively conserve water and decrease their monthly water bills by offering high efficiency Dual Flush toilets. From its newly opened Distribution Center, ecoTransitions broadens the selection of water conserving toilets available in Atlanta. “In a time of a dwindling water supply in Georgia, it is time to look at the No. 1 water-wasting feature in every house”, said ecoTransisions owner and Georgia resident Andrea Paulinelli. “Toilets are still the biggest water users in our homes. When we think about conserving water and long term savings, retrofitting our toilets is the single best solution.” Most of ecoTransitions Caroma High Efficiency Toilets (HET) are listed on EPA’s Watersense list and qualify for the rebates currently offered by many counties and the City of Atlanta. Because water use reduction is an integral part of LEED™, credits can be obtained as well. Caroma toilets employ an integrated dual flush mechanism, letting the user select either a full flush (1.6gpf) or a half flush (0.8gpf). The patented technology can save up to 72% (approx. 18,000 gallons) of annual water usage compared to the traditional 3.5-gallon flush and up to 40% (approx. 4600 gallons) compared to today’s standard 1.6-gallon single flush toilets. A sophisticated redesigned bowl and a larger 4 inch trap allow waste to easily be pushed down with less water. The larger trap way eliminates clogs caused by excessive paper waste in the bowl. Other key strengths include: Elegant Design – Contemporary European design fits with just about any bathroom décor. Well-rounded corners and an easy closing seat provide easy cleaning. Installer-friendly – most Caroma US toilets can be roughed in at 10″ to 12″ with the use of a plastic offset connector. A larger footprint makes for easier replacement of old toilets. Virtually Maintenance Free – Dual Flush Technology eliminates the need for flapper, ball cock, chain and handle failure issues. Complete Fixture Range – The current US line includes a mix of toilets and lavatories for residential and commercial applications. ecoTransitions Inc.
