Did you know that you could save between 30-50% of your toilet’s water usage for only $79? Me neither. Most toilets in use today are single-flush versions, meaning that no matter how much waste you put in the toilet the same amount of water is used to flush it away. That doesn’t really make sense to me when liquid waste requires so little water and solid waste requires more – why do we send the same amount of fresh water down the toilet with each? At a minimum of 1.6 gallons per flush, over 55 BILLION gallons of fresh water are flushed each day into the sewer. That’s a lot of wasted water! The toilets in my apartment are 1.6 GPF units as well, but because they are single-flush, I went looking for something simple I could install on them to make them dual-flush…and I think I found a good one.

The Perfect Flush from Brondell says that it can reduce the amount of water you use in your toilet by up to 50%, is easily installed in a few minutes, and saves you from having to buy a new dual-flush toilet that would cost a lot more. At $79 bucks, if this works as well as they say it does, it’s almost a no-brainer to install in the house. What do you think? Or do you already have a dual-flush toilet? Not sure why every toilet made and installed isn’t already a dual version, but hopefully someday they will be.

Might have to give this a shot after the holidays.

And no, in case you are wondering, they didn’t contact me to write about them – I just dig the idea. You guys know I always tell you when a company sends something along!

  1. I just got a brand new water saving toilet last week. I wanted a dual-flush but couldn’t find one.
    I’de be curious how well this product works.

  2. I love the Perfect Flush! I bought new Toto 1.6 gal toilets about 4 years ago at $400 each. There was no way I was taking them out to put in dual flush toilets. I bought the Perfect Flush for $99 (seems like they lowered the price!) and it works great. It is a really easy way to save a lot of water…

  3. Oh believe me JenO, I would love that for sure! But even if they don’t, I will probably buy one after the holidays and give it a go.

  4. I HOPE they read this and decide to send you one to review! I would love a couple of these for my house, but I can’t afford to buy them unless I know they are going to work!

  5. Dual flush toilets have been standard in Europe for over 10 years. Wonder why it took us in the U.S. so long to catch on?

  6. @Gadgeta is right.

    I believe one of the main reasons in the US still is, that resources, i.e. water and electricity, are still cheap (compared to Europe). People simply don’t have to conserve.
    Higher prices sometimes drive newer and more modern products; same with automobiles.
    OT: only 61 new Cadillac Escalade registered in Germany last year – that’s how many you can see in CA in an hour 😉

    Happy new year – Cheers
