In response to Re: The 1.6 GPF standard. Is it a law? Who watchdogs it?

: It is a federal law and it is self administering, since manufacturers do not make residential 3.5 gpf toilets. The only way to get them is to go to Canada and bring them back.

: : Is this 1.6 GPF a federal law? If so, who administers it? Is the EPA involved? I've heard that Congress is considering eliminating the restriction on the grounds that it is self defeating because people have to flush two and three times to get rid of the waste. Any info regarding these questions would be greatly appreciated. Dick Quaintance

The toilets on the toilet report work fine. They do save water and give you a lower water bill at the end of the month. I replace many older water wasting toilets with better 1.6 toilets

The person responsible for the bill you mention, is having a hard time proving that silly notion that the new toilets can't work. Many work fine. Would you rather, that land be set aside for waste disposal treatment and dispersal, and more water resevoirs set up and purified? Have you ever had to ration water in Summer, you know, don't flush your toilet, but once a day? Yeech!
