FRANKLIN PARK, IL - An upsell kit that gives contractors and wholesalers a complete method for helping their customers understand the advantages of 1.6 gallons-per-flush pressure-assist low consumption toilets with FLUSHMATE® inside over gravity-type toilets is now available from FLUSHMATE, a division of Sloan Valve Company.

The kit includes a video, brochures, instructions on using the kit, and a complete overview of how pressure-assist toilets work. The video is a short film case history that reflects real problems people have with low consumption gravity-type toilets and how pressure-assist models with FLUSHMATE inside solve those problems. It uses real-life situations, including a showroom episode that shows how pressure-assist toilets stay cleaner with fewer stoppages, eliminate double flushing for true water savings, and offer superior drainline carry. They also eliminate condensation on the tank. The video is designed to be "loaned" to customers to watch in the convenience of their own homes. It gives contractors and wholesalers a chance to talk with their customers again after they have viewed the video, enhancing the sales opportunity.

The brochure that comes with the kit outlines the benefits of pressure-assist toilets. The brochure includes photos of all the fixture manufacturers who utilize the FLUSHMATE pressure-assist operating system, including: American Standard-Cadet™ Gerber Plumbing -Ultraflush®; and Mansfield Plumbing Products-Quantum™. Customers may wish to keep the brochure after viewing the video.

The kit is customized by Sloan for specific needs and contains information on becoming an authorized FLUSHMATE center of information. FLUSHMATE-equipped toilets deliver 1.6 GPF at a rate of 70 gallons per minute, which is almost three times the force of gravity-operated units. This eliminates all double-flushing, which is common with 1.6 GPF gravity-type toilets, and improves the drainline carry (how far waste is carried down the drainline).

FLUSHMATE Operating Systems are manufactured by Sloan Valve Company, the world^s leading producer of pressurized flushing devices. Headquartered in Franklin Park, Illinois, the company has been in operation since 1906, and produces plumbing products for commercial, industrial and institutional markets worldwide.
