Finding the Best Water Saving Toilet

Bathroom safety for seniors.

Residential toilets, before the 1950s, would use up to 7 gallons or more each time they were flushed. Their efficiency increased somewhat during the 1960s, requiring only about 5.5 gallons per flush, and later to about 3.5 gallons in the 1980s.
