more about toilets

The inevitable post about toilets | Almost Passive House: "Peter Yost recommended the Niagara Stealth, which he installed in his house more than a year ago. The Stealth ($300) is a single-flush, vacuum-assisted toilet that uses a mere 0.8 gallons per flush (most dual-flush toilets use that amount for only the small flush, and more for the big flush). It's very quiet (Peter let us test his) and by all accounts works great. We even asked a disinterested plumbing supply rep about it, and he told us that a customer with multiple rental properties is gradually buying them for all his units because it's saving him so much on water, and the tenants haven't had any complaints."


  1. We haven't installed our toilets yet, but I keep hearing good things about that model from people who have it.

    1. Now you've got me wanting to replace our adequate low-flush toilet. I'm falling prey to eco-consumerism!

      You're building a new house, so you really should put in something that will age well. I'll wait a few years, and then I might replace ours.
