Considering a dual-flush toilet? Here’s what you should know before you shop:
These are water-saving toilets that let you pick between a full 1.6-gallon flush and a smaller flush of about 1 gallon.
Basically, you use only the water needed, which can save resources and operating costs. The original dual-flush toilets had two side-by-side flush buttons on top of the tank, which were unsuitable for bathrooms with shelves or cabinets built above the commode. Side-lever dual-flush toilets well-suited to such rooms are now available. This two-step trip lever looks just like a traditional lever and is easy to use. You can press the main part of the lever for a full flush or just press the end tip to activate the water-saving flush.
And since it operates in the same manner as a traditional toilet, houseguests probably will not have to call out from the bathroom asking how to flush the thing.
This new side-mount dual-flush handle can give you a lot of leverage when you’re looking to save water.
