Green Lodging News ~ Torn in Two About the Benefits & Challenges of Dual Flush Toilets


Followers of Professor Toilet know that dual flush toilets can be a mixed blessing.  On one hand, dual flush toilets can save both water and money.

Glenn Hasek of Green Lodging News, notes the downside to some models regarding the small area of water in the bowl also known as the water spot:

“…some dual flush toilets do not clean the bowl as efficiently as traditional single-flush versions. Be sure to ask vendors about this. Without getting into too much detail here, you obviously do not want to leave your guests with a bad impression and you do not want to add to the work load of your housekeepers.”

Hasek echoes what the Professor has said before about dual flush toilets.  “Dual flush toilets that use a siphonic design have a water spot the size found in standard toilets.”  Learn more from Toilet Scientist Jim McHale and follow Hasek’s blog at Green Lodging News:
