Caroma® Unveils New Green Products for a New Year

Caroma PR , September 21, 2011 at 12:20 PM

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA –Caroma®, the worldwide leader in high efficiency dual-flush toilets for commercial and residential use, will bring their message to Greenbuild about how their WaterSense® labeled toilets and shower products preserve the world’s most valuable resource – water. Greenbuild 2011 — presented by the U.S. Green Building Council and considered to be the world’s largest annual conference & expo dedicated to green building— will be held in Toronto from October 3 – 6, 2011.

“Caroma’s message and belief that one flush can make a difference in the world is taking hold across North America and we are excited to be bringing our message back to Greenbuild,” said Derek Kirkpatrick, North American General Manager of Caroma. “Our One Flush A Day Gives an iPad Away promotion is fun and it educates booth visitors on the advantages of installing a Caroma high efficiency, dual-flush toilet.” Kirkpatrick continued, “If one person were to use a high efficiency toilet for one year, they’d save almost 330 gallons of water. As a tireless supporter of sustainable technologies for more than 70 years, we really hope to open customers’ eyes to how Caroma is changing the way bathroom water is used and conserved.”

Located at booth #2111N, Caroma will feature several of its newest products, including:

 

Caroma Flow Showerhead

The Caroma Flow high-efficiency showerhead with a nominal flow rate of 1.5gpm/5.7L at 80 psi, includes a precision engineered nozzle that pressurizes water to produce a uniform, and soft yet powerful spray of water; maximizing comfort while saving up to 10 gallons more water than the standard 2.5gpm showerhead for a 10-minute shower. Incorporating a unique easy-slide spray adjustment, ranging from a wide coverage bathing spray to a concentrated rinse flow, the Caroma Flow Showerhead is easy to install in both retrofit and new construction projects.

 

Invisi™ Series II

The Invisi™ Series II wall-hung toilet suites hover above the floor, only visibly attaching to a wall. Plumbing is hidden inside the wall to create a more spacious and luxurious look for bathrooms. With the tank, flush-valve and trap designed to work as one optimized system, all Invisi Series II suites flush with less water without impacting performance. They include two buttons for flushing; the half flush which uses 0.8gpf/3L for liquid, and the full flush which uses 1.28gal/4.8L for solids, for an average flush of 0.9gpf (3.6L).
