    I am trying to decide on a Caroma Dual Flush or these 1.0 GPF toilets I've been reading about, unfortunately I don't see any information on here regarding these models.

    Does anyone have any experience with them, they seem to save more water than the dual-flush:

    I've used a 1.0 gallon pressure assist.
    I flushes things right down using the Flushmate pressure assist.
    Most of the time, the cartridge seals between uses.

    It's a little lacking in bowl wash. Most of the water goes through the trapway, not much for the bowl rinse.

    In the next room, you notice the flush more than with a gravity setup.

    As far as looks go, the Caroma and the Aquia look nicer.
    Those have wash down bowls with a 2" flush valve gravity dual flush tank.
    The Aquia and the EcoDrake 1.28 leave a cleaner bowl.

    that's awesome thanks for the advice.

    i guess the 1.0s aren't ready for prime-time just yet.
