Original Press Release:
Sloan Packages High-Efficiency Toilet Flushometers with Vitreous China Fixtures
Sloan Valve Company's new High-Efficiency Toilet (HET) Systems, which package 1.28 gpf Flushometers with vitreous china fixtures, combine the performance of both the toilet and the flush valve to ensure true, water-efficient systems.
Specifiers have a choice of manual Flushometers and sensor-operated Flushometers, which are battery-powered, hardwired or solar-powered. Sensor-operated models include the Sloan ECOS(TM), a battery-powered electronic dual-flush Flushometer that automatically initiates a water-saving flush cycle based on time spent in sensor range, and the solar-powered Sloan SOLIS® dual-flush and single-flush Flushometers.
The two manual models are the Royal® Flushometer and the UPPERCUT® dual-flush Flushometer.
The HETs, together with Sloan's High-Efficiency Urinal (HEU) Systems that package china fixtures with urinal Flushometers utilizing as little as a pint of water to flush, reduce facilities' water usage even further and contribute to LEED® water-efficiency points.
