The real problem these days is faucets. Since they know they have to
restrict the flow anyway they use tiny internal piping so there is
nothing to drill. We have some Delta bathroom faucets with that
problem. The leader going up to the spout is 1/8" OD. I bought a
Price Pisser kitchen faucet that really sucked and after a while with
tech support they sent me an "experimental" cartridge that I suspect
is just the Canadian one. It made the flow a lot better.
Ah'm tellin ' , ah'm tellin' !! Well , OK , I'm not . Our main waste
elimination device is an older long oval unit . I do have a half gallon
bottle in the tank ... we're looking for an antique unit with a
wall-mount tank for our master bath , we already have a 1911 claw-foot
tub and an antique washstand converted to use a top mount bowl and
faucet . I even managed to keep most of the top drawer as a functional
unit . I should post some pics on photobucket , but I'm lazy .
The first ones on the market were terrible and often needed2 or 3
flushes. but. . .
We remodeled a few years ago and the 1.6 gpf do a fine job. If the old
ones still worked I'd not swap them out, but don't be afraid of the new
ones. Get the comfort height too. We also put in three of them at work
about 10 years ago, ever a miss.

You're right about that. We had maybe a 3.5-gpf toilet when we
moved in here. You could barely get it to handle pee. We
replaced it with a new 1.6 gpf, and I think that sucker could handle
a bucket of golf balls. Trapway design has come a long, long way.
