Where do you get those new toilets that "Blast" the water out when you
I have seen these in businesses. They look just like a regular toilet. I
looked in one and there was a black round plastic compression tank inside.
I found it....
They are called "Pressure Assist Toilets" or "Pressure Assisted Toilets"
This model looks like it has a remote control, but is just a sensor mounted
on the wall...

you can buy these at any place that sells american standard toilets or plumbing
supply warehouses. Also i have seen them at some of the big box stores like Lows
or Home Depot. Here is a hint here. The Cost of the flush kits to convert it
over and the cost of a new American Standard Flush assiste type toilet are about
the same cost. now these prices was taken about 6 months ago and may have
Kohler makes some models. So does Gerber. Just call dealers and ask them
to order one. Gerber has a high water level and you might want to get their
tall model. In fact Consumer Reports now recommends tall models although it
might be a problem with young kids.
One advantage of these toilets, at least the ones with a Sloan valve, is
that they detect back pressure and cannot overflow. If they feel
backpressure they stop flushing instantly.
Also mine are 8 years old and although I have 4 of them, I've only had to
replace 1 small component in all that time. I would have gone thru many
more parts with a gravity toilet by now.
The Gerber which is newer is reasonably quiet. The Kohler is very noisy.
But it could be that the new Sloan valves are quieter and with a newer valve
the Kohler would be quieter. In any case check Consumer Reports at the
library for their ratings.
