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.

This is what our customers are saying about the Flushmate system:

"I love how this system "takes it down" and the sound is very satisfying, too! I loved my Gerber with the FLUSHMATE III for 10 years, 2 months & 10 days. So much, that when I sold my last house, I took it with me and installed a cheapie toilet."

Michael G. - San Jose, CA

"My husband is a general contractor and we always specify FLUSHMATE products to our Plumber."

Helen F. - Divide, CO

"I like FLUSHMATE; they deliver what’s promised and more. Very few products can say that. It doesn’t clog, never needs more than one flush, and it stays clean. We were constantly replacing parts on our other toilets."

"We're tickled to death with our new FLUSHMATE!"

Mr. & Mrs. Gary J. - Bowling Green, KY

"I have used FLUSHMATE products for about 10 years. In the past when I have had problems I have always found your customer service to be very responsive and helpful. It is a pleasure to deal with a company that provides excellent service and when your representatives say they are going to do something they do it."

"It has been a joy to have your products and to deal with your company."

"Thanks for all your help in the past."

Gerald C. - Fresno, CA

"My FLUSHMATE flushes perfectly. It only takes approx 30 seconds for the tank to fill and does it quietly. Thank you very much for your service. I like my FLUSHMATE toilets and gladly show how they operate to my friends or visitors to my home. Just for your information, I stayed at the Sunset Station Casino Hotel in Henderson Nevada recently and to my surprise I found they have FLUSHMATE toilets in all their hotel rooms. They have approx 1800 rooms there. I even asked one of the building maintenance men how they like the FLUSHMATE toilets, to which he replied “it was one of the best plumbing devices he has seen; no dirty tanks, no flapper and broken chain linkage to repair.” I did notice that there was absolutely no water deposit in the bottom of the tank in the room I was staying in. Thank you for manufacturing your superior product!"

Richard F. - Fort Mojave, AZ

"There is a long story that I won't bore you with, but I was in a hotel about two years ago and noticed that the toilet REALLY flushed. I took the back off the toilet and there was your logo on the unit. Last month I stayed in another hotel in St. Thomas, and there you were again. I decided to buy one. I love it!"

Larry V. - Louisville, KY

"Your customer care service should be a model for other industries which continue to fail miserably, generally speaking. It has been very refreshing to call your people and acquire prompt assistance with delivery of replacement parts and installation advice. Thanks again for being a caring company."

Oscar F. - Las Vegas, NV

How It Works

water flows to vessel vessel ready to flush air pressure empties valve

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.

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.
