Down the Drain
The Energy Policy Act of 1992, where water use reduction in plumbing fixtures became a reality at the national level, unknowingly began a debate of drain line transport efficacy. Fast forward to today, the plumbing market transitions towards 4.8 Lpf / 1.28 gpf toilets, and continues to push the envelope by reducing consumption levels (to 1.1 gpf for example)…and the debate continues.
Although reducing the water usage of plumbing fixtures prompts the emergence of low flow, high efficiency toilets that support water conservation, unintentional consequences such as the lack of water pressure is negatively affecting the drain line function.
