Can One Flush Make a Difference?

Absolutely! In the United States federal law requires that new toilets must not exceed 1.6 gallons of water per flush (gpf).The high efficiency toilet (HET) category has set a standard in North America with 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf). Caroma’s HET’s go even further: The average flush of the toilets in Caroma’s standard collection is 1.06 gpf, while the Smart Series features an industry breaking .96 gpf!

Just think. If just one person uses a high efficiency toilet for one year then they will save around 330 gallons of water (based on the average three times a day flush). Further, if your toilet is from the 1980s, when new toilets were regulated to use 3.5 gallons of water per flush, you would save 2,410 gallons per year by switching to a HET toilet! One flush CAN make a difference.

The numbers simply add up. If five people replaced their old 3.5 gpf toilet, over 12,000 gallons of water or the equivalent of 300, 20 minute showers would be saved. One flush does make a difference, but if 2,000 people with new toilets switched to a HET toilet, in one year you would be able to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool with the water saved: 660,430 gallons! If 822 people using the old 3.5 gpf toilets changed to a Caroma HET toilet, we could fill an Olympic pool with the water saved!

Caroma’s Latest Introduction Sets New Conservation Standard

Caroma has launched its most water conscious toilet yet – the Sydney Smart. This latest addition to the company’s line of dual flush toilets, and already WaterSense approved by the EPA, offers the lowest water use of any toilet available in America.

Caroma is the world leader with innovative, high efficiency toilets. The Caroma Smart (TM) Technology is leading-edge and has been developed and mastered over the last decade to deliver the ultimate of design, water savings, and performance. Sydney Smart, Caroma’s newest dual flush, is the first dual-flush toilet utilizing 0.8 gpf for the half and only 1.28 gpf for the full flush, therefore provides significant water savings. With the built-in lower flush option, typically used four times more often than the larger flush, Sydney Smart provides the highest water savings of any high efficiency toilet (HET) available, as it calculates to an average of 0.89 gallons per flush.

Like all Caroma toilets, Sydney Smart uses Wash Down flushing instead of siphon action and has a trapway nearly double the industry average. Caroma engineers enhanced the water dynamics from the flush valve to the bowl to ensure that a small volume of water would successfully evacuate the bowl and all the way through the drain line. The Smart models maintain Caroma’s reputation for clog-proof performance.

The continuing drought in the South, California’s new legislation mandating high efficiency toilets and the eco-movement are forcing Americans to consider water saving strategies like those developed in Australia, where droughts are measured in years, rather than months.  Dual flush toilets are credited as one of the chief ways per capita water consumption has been cut 25 percent over the last decade.

Since introducing dual flush toilets twenty-five years ago in Australia, Caroma continually has advanced the performance of its products.  The Smart technology, setting a new benchmark for water efficiency, was used in product installed at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and later incorporated into the line in 2004.  The Sydney Smart arrives here after years of market acceptance in Australia and Caroma’s Asian markets.

The Sydney Smart is an EPA-approved WaterSense toilet, meaning it is among the most water-efficient and best performing models on the market.  Caroma is the industry leader with 41 Water Sense models. 

Caroma, a wholly owned subsidiary of GWA International Limited, a Brisbane, Australia-based company, is at the forefront of water efficient plumbing, and exports products to 39 countries. Its development and constant improvement of dual flush technology have led to dual flush toilets outselling single flush toilets around the world.
