  1. Waterless urinals provide a huge water savings. I don’t understand why there are not rules mandating their use or incentives to encourage more of them. There is a savings of 15,000 – 40,000 gallons per year with each waterless urinal installed. In 2006 developers proposed using them in Philadelphia’s Comcast Center high rise for a savings of 1.6 millions gallons of water per year.

  2. I agree, Waterless Urinals should be mandatory, especially in public buildings. Also, if you are serious about saving water, want a toilet that really works and is affordable, I would highly recommend a Caroma Dual Flush toilet. Caroma toilets offer a patented dual flush technology consisting of a 0.8 Gal flush for liquid waste and a 1.6 Gal flush for solids. Caroma, an Australian company set the standard by giving the world its first successful two button dual flush system in the nineteen eighties and has since perfected the technology. Also, with a full 3.5″ trapway, these toilets virtually never clog. All of Caroma’s toilets are on the list of WaterSense labeled HET’s http://www.epa.gov/watersense/pp/find_het.htm and also qualify for several rebate programs currently available as well as LEED points. Please go to http://www.caromausa.com for more detailed information or visit http://www.ecotransitions.com/howto.asp to see why they actually work. Best regards, Andrea Paulinelli

  3. Investigate before buying…make sure the toilet does the job.

    Toilets: Comfortable and efficient

    Trends include more comfort-height models, which raise the rim from the usual 14 inches to as much as 17 inches above the floor. The added height makes getting on and off easier, especially for aging boomers, who have helped boost sales. But their added comfort is likely to appeal to younger buyers, too.

    Dual-flush requires discretion. Dual-flush models we tested did a fine job of thoroughly removing liquid waste when we used their optional water-saving, 0.8-gallon mode. But none of these toilets are meant for solid waste in that mode.”
