In response to Re: 1 gallon per flush
Hubert Lim: I cannot of course comment on the efficacy of the 1gpf toilet that you mention. I do have some minor reservations about what happens after the solids are evacuated from the bowl with such a reduced volume of water.
Sanitary waste collection systems rely on the water to not only adequately flush the bowl, but also provide a means to carry the solids through the maze of drainage piping beneath the floor.
With such a small amount of water to convey the waste through the underground piping to the municipal sewer tap, there is an inherant probability of stoppages in those drainage lines.
Water borne waste systems require a sufficient flow of water to achieve that purpose. I would be interested in any follow-up studies or additional information on this new low flush toilet.
