Bathroom Blogfest 09: Flushing this economy will take more than the average toilet


This post is part of Bathroom Blogfest 09.    Professor Toilet is proud to be one of 21 bloggers invited to participate in this third annual event, celebrating all aspects of bathrooms.  This year’s Bathroom Blogfest theme is “Flush the Recession and Plunge Into Forgotten Spaces.”

MaP Your Way Around Clogged Toilets

To flush the likes of this economy, it takes a high performance toilet, independently tested to remove at least 1,000 grams of solid waste on just 1.6 gallons of water or less.

That’s more than 2.2 pounds of stuff you really do not want to be plunging.

Maximum Performance Testing (MaP) is an independent report of toilet flushing performance developed by John Koehler and Veritec Consulting.  The 15th edition was just published last week, available free through the Alliance for Water Efficiency.

The EPA requires that WaterSense labeled toilets be able to flush a minimum of 350 grams in the MaP test.  At present, MaP test is the main, if not only, independently recognized test designed to gauge this rather important parameter.

Professor Toilet, thank you for sharing such heavy wisdom with us. I for one am relieved that an independent report of toilet flushing performance has been developed. This is an area where science, efficiency and testing matter for peace of mind.


Great information, Professor Toilet! We are having performance issues with our home toilet, so this report will be most helpful!
