Low Flow Toilets – How to Choose the Best Low Flow Toilet

How low (flow) can you go? It turns out you can go very low, 4 liters per flush, and still get excellent results. How to choose the best low flow toilet comes down to, how do you know what toilets will work? You have two options. You can go with a R&B recommended brand like Kholer, American Standard, or Toto, which are locally accessible, excellently rated and good quality. Or, if you have a different model in mind, you can check its function online. The name of the program is Maximum Performance or MaP for short. It is a website and organization lead by the Canadian Water and Waste Water Association, dedicated to testing and rating low flow toilets. You can search by manufacturer, model or type, and see how your prospect measures up. Look for a rating of 600 grams of waste removed or better. I looked up some brands that we have removed for customers like Eago and Cascadian; 250 grams for Cascade, and non-existent in the case of Eago. Eago toilets were not tested because the manufacturer chooses not to participate in the evaluation process. 

Still want to shop around? MaP has a report called MaP Premium List of Qualified Toilet Fixtures. This report has a list of the top rated toilets. Whether you go with the recommendation of an experienced professional, or research your own choices, you can now be sure that your compliance with ‘low flow’ doesn’t mean ‘no flow’. Remember to phone R&B when you’re ready to buy from our toilet supply and install a warranty program.
