ABOUT DUAL FLUSH TOILETS
Dual flush toilets offer very substantial water savings by providing two flushing buttons: one giving a full flush, the other giving a partial flush. The user can opt for full flush or partial flush as appropriate. The dual flush toilet was invented in 1980 by Bruce Thompson, of the Australian toilet manufacturer Caroma. Dual flush toilets can save the average household 67% of their water usage.
With the encouragement of the Environmental Protection Agency's program to reduce water consumption, manufacturers now supply an increasing range of dual flush models. These are available in a wide range of contemporary and traditional designs.
