I'm rehabbing a few houses and will have about 6 working old toilets (some
are as new as 5 years old but still the old 5 gal flush type) that is being
replaced by new 1.3 gal toilets. Previously I just put a sledge hammer to it
and take it to the dump. Is there a recycle place I could take it to in the
If you are responsible for maintaing the new toilets you are a IDIOT
for replacing them!
Sorry to be blunt but the old 5 gallon flushers worked fine every time
Whatever new ones you install will have a added decoration:( A nice
ugly plunger sitting nearby for quick use:(
But why is pressure assist necessary? I have the cheapest possible
1.3 gal Toto in my camp and have yet to put anything into it that
won't flush on the first try.

Go install yourself a Toto and see if you still agree with that statement.
The ones I've installed work better than the sole 5 gal/flush model I have
left. It's going very soon...... I used to have a plunger nearby until I
installed the Toto's (Drake model I believe). Now I'm not even sure where
the plunger is these days....I've not had to use it once in 2 years now.
The newer toilets work much better than the earlier versions (low
There are people out there who think old toilets are better. I was
able to sell two old toilets for a modest price quickly by describing
them as pre-1.6 gallon per flush on free online classifieds.
But neither one of these old toilets flushed anywhere near as well as
my new Toto Drake (1.6 gpf).
Whether the new toilets flush well has been determined to be a function,
mainly, of the user's diet. Vegetarians generate a lot of "floaters" (tough
to flush) whereas meat-eaters generate more "sinkers."
Remember, vegetables are not food. Vegetables are what food eats.
