I noticed that Joc mentioned the toilets with the flusher for number one and number two, they are called dual flush toilets, they flush at different gallons per flush rates- the number one is only .8 gallons per flush where as the number two is 1.2 (or 1.1) gallons per flush. For LEED points you actually have to count them as though you had two seperate toilets (therefore they aren't always the best choice). There used to be an ultra-low flow toilet that only used .8 gallons per flush but that was done away with because of the problem with flushing number two.

Just thought I could share my college education with others!! After all it cost enough to receive I should put it to good use. wink
