Plumbing professionals and contractors are on the forefront of implementing residential and commercial water efficiency plans. With toilet fixtures, it is critical that plumbers make correct recommendations.
The consequences of bad recommendations include call-backs, complaints and non-compensated work.
MaP enables the plumbing professional to make the right choice with accurate documentation. Because MaP participation from the manufacturer is voluntary, not all toilets on the market are listed. To date, 2,340 toilets from 90 brands have been tested and listed in the MaP online database.
For the commercial application, MaP tests have been conducted on 365 flushometer combinations, 241 of which are High-Efficiency Toilets (HETs). All of these tested combinations are accessible through our Flushometer database.
Over a 5-year period, competitive pressure and MaP testing has resulted in hundreds of high-performance 21st century models being introduced into the marketplace, for which manufacturers must be given great credit!
In 2003, the average North American toilet MaP test score was 350 grams (12 ounces). By 2008, the average MaP test score nearly doubled to 675 grams (24 ounces).
