I Hate Slow Flow

When I was in college, our bathrooms has toilets with pressure so great that they could suck a small farm animal down with one flush. Unfortunately, though, “slow flow” toilets seem to have become the norm. As much as I consider myself an environmentalist, let me state for the record: slow flow toilets suck.

And you know, I’m not at all convinced that they’re better for the environment, either. The old toilets used (I believe) 1.5 gallons per flush, whereas the new toilets use about 1 gallon per flush. The difference is, the old toilets only took one flush (maximum two) to finish things off. Slow flow toilets can take up to five. The math just doesn’t add up. And I won’t even get into the issue of clogging.

I’ve been tempted more than once to go out and buy a Ferguson toilet for that “Man’s flush.” -ram

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
