Offering the epitome of efficiency

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

With today’s current “eco” water standards, the term “high-efficiency” toilet often brings to mind a rather inefficient flush, usually requiring a reflush to “finish the job.” The Bathroom Store understands that to be truly high-efficient, a product can only conserve water if it works effectively.

The company’s main brand, TOTO, has always been a pioneer in water conservation, using extensive research and design to ensure powerfully flushing toilets and other eco-minded products. TOTO is the only plumbing manufacturer to receive the EPA’s Water Efficiency Leader Award, an award given to those that foster an ethic of water conservation.

In 1987, a 1.6 gallon-per-flush (GPF) legislation was passed in Massachusetts, giving manufacturers two years to comply. Most manufacturers simply reduced the size of their tanks, which resulted in poor performance and multiple flushes. TOTO had already optimized the performance of its toilets since they had been designing and developing low-volume flushing systems in Japan for almost 100 years. In fact, the brand’s rigorous flushing tests are more extensive than current industry standards, ensuring outstanding one-flush performance and true water savings.

Replacing older, larger water-use toilets with newer models can result in significant water and sewer savings. It’s a myth that more water will make a toilet work better. TOTO’s high-efficiency toilets use less water than ever, yet outperform many of the older, water-guzzling toilets.

Further research and development brought forth the Double Cyclone Flushing System which, like a cyclone in nature, harnesses the power of water and gravity to create a more powerful, balanced and effective flush — the result being maximum waste removal and cleaning action.

The Bathroom Store is proud to be the first in Hawaii to introduce the new TOTO Ultramax II 1G. This product is the industry’s first single-piece, 1 GPF ultra high-efficiency toilet that offers the company’s state-of-the art Double Cyclone Flushing System. The new gravity-fed, one-piece 1G Double Cyclone marries flawless performance and exceptional bowl-cleansing action to give ultra high-efficiency water savings (35 percent compared to 1.6 GPF toilets), creating a clean, green flushing system that saves money, water and time.

If you replace a 3.5 or 5 GPF toilet with a 1 GPF TOTO toilet, you can save about 16,000 to 28,000 gallons of water per year. Even going from a 1.6 GPF to a TOTO 1-gallon flushing toilet will save at least 3,500 gallons every year.

The 1G’s bowl and concave rim come coated with SanaGloss, TOTO’s nanotechnology glaze that seals its porcelain with an ionized barrier, creating a slippery, non-porous surface. The 1G utilizes two nozzles (instead of rim holes) that use water more efficiently for better rim and bowl cleansing. The included Soft-Close seat ensures that your “business” remains “silent.” All of these features are beautifully wrapped together in an ADA-approved, comfort-height toilet.
