New 1.1 gpf toilet systems, which combine a vitreous china toilet fixture with either a manual or sensor-operated high-efficiency 1.1 gpf flushometer, are now available from Sloan Valve Company. The new combinations provide consistent, reliable performance designed to help architects, engineers, contractors and building owners achieve their goals of lowering water usage while maintaining performance expectations.
These new toilet systems represent Sloan’s most water efficient products, using 14% less water than the company’s current lowest combinations at 1.28 gpf, and 31% less than the 1.6 gpf EPA standard. Furthermore, these max-efficiency plumbing products can contribute to LEED® Credits for water use reduction. The new combinations provide effective, low-maintenance flushing in public restrooms while reducing water consumption.
As the broadest 1.1 gpf product range available, Sloan offers three water-efficient flushometer options. Sloan’s latest innovations in this flushing technology are Royal® manual valves and ECOS® and SOLIS® electronic valves – all paired with Sloan floor-mount, floor-mount ADA and wall-hung bowls for a total of 9 different combinations. The flushometers include:
Royal: Sloan’s best-selling model, this manual flushometer provides years of exceptional reliability and performance.
ECOS: ECOS battery-operated, sensor-activated flushometers provide hands-free operation while delivering significant water savings. ECOS flushometers include an override button for manual use.
SOLIS: SOLIS utilizes solar panels with battery back-up to help power the flushometer, effectively doubling the battery life. SOLIS flushometers include an override button for manual use.
