JULY 2016   1.28 Gpf survey; search, sort and compare

IMPORTANT SURVEY: Is it time that 1.28 gallons per flush (4.8 Lpf) become the national standard in the U.S. and Canada?


Background
Most toilets sold today flush with 1.28 gallons (4.8L) or less and yet easily out-perform and out-flush older 1.6 and 3.5 gallon models. Mandating a maximum flush volume of 1.28 gallons would not impact consumer satisfaction but could save hundreds of millions of gallons of water every day. 

Take the survey!

Need to Purchase MaP Test Media?


Maximum Performance (MaP) testing identifies how well different toilet models are able to flush waste and then lists the ranking of each model on the www.map-testing.com website.  MaP testing is done using a realistic test media made of soybean paste having similar physical properties to human waste (e.g., density, moisture content) plus toilet paper.  Using realistic test media allows manufacturers to develop the high-performance, low water-use toilet models that consumers and building owners want.
