A pressure assist type. Several brands are made. Most rely on the
water pressure to pressurize the tank when refilling. Most work well seldom
clog and cost plenty. They also tend to require more maintenance.
Newer quality designed and made toilets do very well without all this
stuff. Look for fully glazed traps with at least a 2 inch size. The
American Standard Cadet (there are several models) seems to be very well
liked and it is not expensive.
I have owned a Flushmate for 10 years with limited "maintenance"
issues. The company stands behind there product and the one problem I
did have was resolved by calling there 800 number. I would suggest
anyone with a problem should call there technical service department
since the Flushmate has a 5 year warranty. Plus most of the time it is
only a simple adjustment. I have looked at the Champion but I think it
was overrated. After contacting A.S. they had limited information
related to the claims they gave on there website.
I have had an flushmate pressure assit and an amdrican standard champion.
Both handle "large loads" in a single flush. If I had to choose, though, I
would go with the flushmate. I didin't mind the extra noise and like the
force with which it flushed..
