In preparation for our final inspection we had lots of odds & ends to finish… Such as installing the toilet in the half bath.
So this is what a dual flush mechanism looks like. The blue button is the half flush which drops the stop once about half the water leaves the tank.
The mechanism is very similar to our ToTo daul flush toilet upstairs. Since this was a last minute decision, we had a smaller budget then upstairs so after much research we selected this American Standard toilet for under $200. So far it seems to work great.
It’s pretty amazing in the last 2 years how many more dual flush toilets are on the market compared to last time we did the research. It’s an area that we are way behind Europe on and it makes a huge impact on water conservation… so it’s great to see.
We didn’t go with an elongated seat to minimize the toilets footprint in this small room and in general this toilet is much smaller than the old one making the room feel a little bigger.
