Surrey, British Columbia – Caroma, the worldwide leader in high efficiency dual flush toilets for commercial and residential use, showcases a selection of the WaterSense labeled toilets throughout its catalog.  Committed to water conservation technologies for 70 years and remaining dedicated to promoting sustainability, Caroma leads the industry with 47 WaterSense labeled toilets, more than any company in the market.       


Using the award-winning Smartflush® technology, Caroma toilets surpass both the U.S. federal requirement of no more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush (gpf) for new toilets and North American high efficiency toilet (HET) standard of 1.28 gpf.  All Caroma toilets include a large fully-concealed trapway that virtually eliminates blockages and two buttons for flushing; the half flush which uses 0.8 gpf for liquid, and the full flush which uses 1.28-1.6 gpf (depending on the model) for solids.  With an average flush volume of 0.9 gpf, Caroma toilets boast the lowest water consumption in the market today. 


Profile Smart

Recipient of Popular Mechanics Product Breakthrough Award, the Profile Smart is one of the most unique and innovative products to reach North America.  The Profile Smart is a multi-purpose fixture for the bathroom that combines a handwash basin and faucet with a dual flush toilet for the ultimate in water conservation.  After using the toilet, the system directs fresh water through the integrated faucet for washing hands.  The water then drains into the toilet tank where it remains until it is used for the next flush.  In addition to the high efficiency dual flush technology featured in the Profile Smart, the fixture also creates a sustainable use for sink water that typically goes down the drain. 



From the classically refined to the richly rewarding, the Adelaide collection exudes elegance and features a stylish European look.  As WaterSense labeled toilets, the Adelaide Standard 270 and Adelaide 270 Cube are dual flush toilets that boast 1.6/0.8 gallons per flush.  Available with an easy height bowl (16.5” high) as well as a standard Adelaide 270 bowl, both are floor mounted two-piece toilets with round bowls.  The Adelaide 270 Cube features a more rectangular shaped tank for a more modern look in the bathroom.  Available in above counter, drop-in, with a pedestal and wall mounted installation; Adelaide sinks are also a perfect addition for anyone looking to add a new level of sophistication to the bathroom. 



With an emphasis on shape, form and functionality, the Brisbane toilet combines circular geometric lines, intersecting rectangles and dual flush technology to create a high efficiency toilet with the utmost in style and design.  Made of vitreous china and designed for easy cleaning, the Brisbane toilet meets the needs of the modern bathroom designer and the wants of the stylish yet busy homeowner.  With Brisbane sinks also available in above counter, semi-recessed and two wall mounted options, a stylish and uniform look can be achieved when combining the toilet with a complimentary sink.

Beginning with the worldwide introduction of the two-button dual flush toilet system in 1982, Caroma has been known for developing breakthrough bathroom technologies to support water conservation.  Since the introduction of the 1.6 / 0.8 gallon (6 / 3 liters) dual flush system in 1993, Caroma has been considered the global leader in reduced flush technology.  Unlike low-flow toilets first introduced to the US market, Caroma toilets are high-performance, and extremely environmentally responsible. 


Can One Flush Make a Difference?

Absolutely!  If just one person uses a high efficiency toilet for one year then they will save approximately 330 gallons of water (based on the average three flushes of water per day).  Further, if your toilet is from the 1980’s when new toilets were regulated to use 3.5 gallons of water per flush, you would save 2,410 gallons per year by switching to a HET toilet! If 2000 people switched to HET toilets, in one year they would be able to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool with THE WATER SAVED: 660,430 gallons.  If 50% of the 238 million toilets in the US that are high-flow (3.5 gallons per flush or more) were converted to a dual flush toilet, 1.4 trillion gallons of water could be saved per year!
