Ever wondered what performance testing was done on popular toilets?

Posted in Acceptance testing by testing in London on June 19, 2009

From Readers Digest

In 1994 Congress decided to conserve water by requiring toilets to use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush. It was a good idea, but when manufacturers came out with their first water-saving models, they hadn’t yet figured out how to make toilets perform as well as before (most toilets at that time used 3.5 gallons or more). So homeowners like you got stuck with toilets that require two or even three flushes to clear and clean the bowl. These wimpy toilets plug up more often too. Their design is poor and there isn’t much you can do to improve them. The only real solution is a new toilet.
