The American Standard H2Option is one of the most popular toilets on the market right now! It has been a pillar in the dual category since it came out. We believe it is the best way to save water without overlooking the flow!
The H2Option is a toilet with dual discharge option. Two buttons on the top of the tank control different volumes of water. One button releases 1.6 gallons of water that discharges solid waste, while the second button releases .9 gallons of liquid.
Dual-download options allow owners to find a compromise between conservation and convenience, and this is why this is so good!
A large part of American Standard's great appeal is its discharge power. Despite using a small volume of water, H2Option has better performance than many commercial models with regular discharges. It actually has a 70% better waste disposal than the competition!
American Standard combines the action of syphonic jet wash with a pressurized edge to empty the bowl easily after each discharge. In a company demo video, you can see a weird variety of items, from 20 golf balls to 2 pounds of cat litter, disappear down the drain of the H2Option without problems.
While a large part of the demo video is marketing, the fact is that this is very powerful in the download department. Even the liquid waste option contains a bit of force behind it, and runs through the container thoroughly.
Even with such a strong redness, American Standard will still save you a lot of water. The solid waste function uses 1.6 standard gallons per discharge, but the liquid waste function saves more than a third of the water used. You will only use one gallon at a time. Therefore, if you use that for most of your trips to the bathroom, you may be looking for a reduction of almost 33% in water consumption!
This also has a permanent "Everclean" protective surface inside and outside the bowl. This is a great feature, because many who use less water tend to get dirty quickly.
According to most owners (although there are some dissenters), the Everclean surface does its job, which means less cleaning for you. We also discovered that the superfast discharge function kept messes and jams at bay. Absolutely runs the sides of the container to keep stains, films and other dirt at the same time.
However, H2Option uses more water over time than the other two options in this list. Although the light rinse option is certainly low flow, heavy discharge uses more water than many low flow toilets.
