HILLSBORO, ORE.—Caroma, a leader in high efficiency toilets (HETs), urinals, and bathroom sinks, has increased its number of WaterSense Labeled toilets to 47, more than any manufacturer, according to the company. WaterSense is a partnership program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to make it easy for Americans to save water while protecting the environment.
The WaterSense program is designed to identify high performance water efficient toilets that can preserve precious water resources by reducing water use in the home. Being WaterSense labeled means a toilet saves at least 20 percent more water than the current federal standard of 1.6 gallons per flush.
All Caroma floor-mount toilets have passed testing, including the 2009 introduction of the Profile Smart with integrated sink and the 2008 introductions of the Sydney Smart and Sydney Low Profile ranges. The Profile Smart and Sydney Smart use 1.28 gallons for a full flush (solid waste) and 0.8 gallons for liquid and paper waste, averaging less than 0.9 gallons per flush. Caroma’s other high efficiency toilets use only 0.96 gallons per flush. Caroma Smart technology saves the average family of four nearly 30,000 gallons of water every year compared to the common five gallon toilet and more than 5,000 gallons per year compared to the nationally mandated 1.6 gallon toilet.
Headquartered in drought-stricken Australia, Caroma has been a leader in water conservation for more than 25 years and continues to develop innovative technologies that conserve water without sacrificing performance. The Caroma Smart technology is used in the Sydney Smart range, the recently introduced Profile Smart with integrated sink, an upcoming product announcement in August 2009, and is also used in the high efficiency Cube3 Ultra one pint urinal and the H2Zero waterless urinal (introduced in October 2008).
