-If you're planning a bathroom remodel, here's one item you will definitely need. Hello! I'm Linda Eggerss, editor of Kitchen and Bath Ideas magazine. Did you know that in your home the toilet is the fixture that uses more water than any other. Today, I'm gonna show you some fixtures that help you become more environmentally friendly. - The FloWise high-efficiency toilet from American Standard has a Dual Flush design that uses either 0.8 or 1.6 gallons per flush reducing the amount of water use by 30% compared to standard toilets. It is available in a standard or Right Height model which is ADA compliant. The Neorest 550 toilet from TOTO is a high-efficiency, dual flush toilet that also includes several innovative features. There is a remote control lid, a night light, and a sound feature that masks bathroom noises. -This is a green unit. It's a high-efficiency unit for the luxury category. So from a seated position, this will flush at 1 galloon per flush. And for the full flush, it will flush at 1.6 gallons per flush. So the combination over the course of the day is less than 1.28 gallons making it a high efficiency unit. -Caravelle Dual Flush High-Efficiency Toilet from Caroma adds European design to the bathroom. It is also WaterSense-approved being certified by independent laboratory testing for water efficiency and flush performance. The Cimarron 1.28-gallon toilet with Class Five EcoSmart Technology is engineered to provide significant water savings in your home. Its flapperless tower design ensures consistent reliable performance with no tank run-ons. The Logan Square Toilet from Gerber has a decorative design that coordinates with a line of bathroom sinks and faucets. The concealed trap makes it easy to clean and it is also ADA compliant. -As you can see, we have a concealed tank and carrier which is behind the wall that enables this toilet to be wall hung in a residence. With a family of four, Dual Flush-enabled technology----meaning your actuator, 2 different flush----a family of four will save between 10,000 to 11,000 gallons of water per year. -The Duravit Toilet boosts a sleek, contemporary design and the wall mount style toilet makes cleanup a breeze. -You know, if every single one of us replaced our toilet with a high efficiency model like this one, we could save millions and millions of gallons per year. And those are my hot picks for toilets.
