How it Works

Toilets with FLUSHMATE® Inside Perform Better, and are the Preferred Choice of Today's Consumer!

Today, more and more consumers are finding that pressure-assist technology developed by FLUSHMATE® will deliver the performance they were used to - while using less than the required 1.6 gallons-per-flush (6 liters).

FLUSHMATE®- equipped toilets use pressure (not gravity) and have proven themselves to be the superior alternative to gravity-type low consumption toilets.

How It Works

The FLUSHMATE® system traps air and as it fills with water, it uses the water supply line pressure to compress the trapped air inside. The compressed air is what forces the water into the bowl, so instead of the “pulling” or siphon action of a gravity unit, the pressure-assist unit “pushes” waste out. This vigorous flushing action cleans the bowl better than gravity units.

The FLUSHMATE® Curve

There are many benefits to FLUSHMATE® performance:

  • At start of flushing cycle, water delivery is maximized to produce powerful pushing action.

  • Toward end of cycle, remaining water forms large water surface area

  • Entire cycle is approximately 5 seconds

Superior Drain Carry Performance

The graph shows that as water volume is decreased, drainline carry capability also decreases -- except for the toilet combinations which are achieved by flushometer tanks. Test conducted according to ANSI standard procedures as discussed in APSE Research Report 91-01.
