Hi Reuben and folks,

I’ve spec’d lots of toilets for faith communities and I like what I see in this one. The right height is key, as is the single button flush. Dual flush confuses and scares many older people not on the green/environmental bandwagon. It’s a big deal in churches, as I’ve found out. Single flush, solid finished trapways and you are in good shape. 

I can’t speak to the performance per se of this unit, but their others have performed pretty well in my personal experience. 

I would also recommend that if you are putting something like this in a faith building to figure out the ballpark water savings per day/year and have them make up a sign promoting the savings on $, the savings on the environment and that they care about stewardship. Many decisions like this in places like that go unnoticed by the majority of the folks who attend. Let them know that the decision makers care about the planet, and make everyone feel good about your role and helping them get there.

Cheers

Stephen
