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 provides the kind of research needed to assure the design professional and contractor that their toilet selection is not just about initial cost, but also about fixture performance.
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, 2,603 toilets from over 100 brands have been tested and listed in the MaP online database!.
For the commercial application, MaP tests have been conducted on 441 flushometer combinations, 293 of which are High-Efficiency Toilets (HETs). All of these tested combinations are accessible through our Flushometer database.
Over a 10-year period, competitive pressure and MaP testing has resulted in hundreds of high-performance 21st-century fixture models being introduced into the marketplace, for which manufacturers must be given great credit!
For example, in 2003, the average North American toilet MaP test score was 350 grams (about 12 ounces of solid waste). By 2012, the average MaP test score more than doubled to nearly 800 grams (over 28 ounces)!
