To be a candidate for the most efficient toilet regarding the use of water, there are certain requirements that must be met. The most obvious of which is a low amount of water that is consumed with each discharge.
Obviously, when choosing efficiency over power, it is also contributing to the environment, which is always an advantage. Therefore, today, we list, review and analyze several of the best products currently on the market.
The best low-flow toilets – our critics
We research several high-efficiency toilets in the industry to help you find units that comply with Water Sense. These types of toilets tend to have lower than average consumption per discharge. Generally around 1.28 gallons with each color. The old styles used to consume larger numbers, like three gallons, so the difference that can potentially have, when considering the amount of toilets on the planet, is quite large. Even against the standard 1.6-gallon options, they are saving up to 20%.
However, some people mistakenly assume that because they consume less water, the power produced is not as effective. When really, they make better use of the water in the tank to effectively evacuate the waste. Here are some of my favorites.
