under proposed bill HR208 the government is attempting to phase out all high powered toilets starting in 2013 with models achieving 1.6 gallons per flush, and 1.0 gallons per flush respectively by 2015. personally, i think Washington has no business telling me how to do my private business. granted the newer toilets make a satisfying flushing sound but they take FOREVER to fill back up. and sometimes they don't always work and it takes 2 or even 3 attempts to eliminate the floater. moreover not every leftover is created equal. what might go down easily in one state might not in another. the federal government has no authority to intervene because its power to regulate only extends to commerce that crosses state lines. and i don't it can travel that far.

i urge everyone to vote against HR208 proposition poop.

low flow toilets are the bee's knees. i **** full-sized submarine torpedos, and they never have a problem flushing. sometimes i see the toilet magically breaking my present in two to get the job done. i'm sure high flow toilets cannot do this magic.

One thing I've never understood is why in the U.S. we don't have the dual-flush toilets they use in other parts of the world. They have one flush for liquid and another for solid. Makes total sense and uses less water where less is needed.

Haha... he called the sh!t poop!

This is what I was going to say. The dual-flush part, not the haha part.

You mentioned high powered toilets...does this include those turbo-charged ones? We don't have any tall buildings here in Magnolia (or much indoor plumbing, either), but when I have visited them big casinos down on the river, their toilets on the upper floors are like little tornadoes, swooshing everything away and scaring the bejabbers out of anyone nearby.

Sanitation is an interstate issue for us here in the deepest part of south Arkansas, because while it might not flow far, it does flow downhill, and just downhill from us is Louisiana. You can look it up.

If any of you guys have visited Japan, now there's a place that does toilets properly. The Toto Washlet, a work of genius.

It's a very fastidious country. They don't mind investing in a good toilet.
