After the realization that natural resources such as water needed to be conserved, many changes have taken place and the home front was not left behind. One of the places where so much water is consumed is the toilet; with every single flush traditionally dispensing of between 3.5 and 5.0 gallons of water. The late 1980s saw the introduction of the water saving toilets which are to be found almost every where today. This water saving toilet dispenses approximately 1.6 gallons of water with every single flush, which is such a big improvement form the previous ordinary toilets.
Whereas the old toilets which generally had larger bowls with trap passageways that were also larger in diameter depended solely on the large volume of water, new conservation laws demanded that things had to change. In the past, just a single flush was provided sufficient water that adequately cleansed the bowl and siphoned any waste into the drainage lines outside the house. The water saving toilet however, has to do with only 1.6 gallons of water and this has to be enhanced with sufficient hydraulic engineering in order to accomplish the same simple task with less water. Care must be taken though so that you acquire a water saving toilet that is up to the task. There are a few of these modern toilets that are not done too well and people will end up flushing two or three times, thereby beating the purpose of having a water saving toilet in the first place. In order to forestall this emerging problem engineers working on toilet water saving solutions have had to come up with toilet designs that employ sufficient energy so as to avoid any repetitive flushing.
Newer models of water saving toilets are emerging in the market and they now have the ability to maximize the power and cleansing ability of each single drop of the available 1.6 gallons of water per flush. Many of these new designs have employed some pressure mechanisms in the smaller tank. The existing pressure of the water supply line is used to compress air into a bladder mechanism that is fitted inside the smaller tank so that when the flush is activated, water rapidly gushes into the bowl and more often than not you will rarely need to flush more than once. Since the water saving toilet forces the water and waste rapidly down the drain, you also solve the problem of a likelihood of a sewer pipe clog
