    POWER FLUSH TIOLETS

    I,m adding a Second floor bathroom
    The toilet is in the far corner with a shower in the center and a sink on the near wall
    I,ve used 3" PVC DWV pipe all the way to the main stack the sink and shower are 2"
    Are Power flush toilets still the Newest Technology?
    I hate the thought of future problems and have not purchased the toilet yet
    All 3 units are vented and the piping has a proper pitch

    The whole reason I,m wondering is That I have noticed the toilet drains seem to be getting smaller as of late
    Thanks
    DON"T mess with the US
    I thought I had been there and done That.
    ITS ALL ABOUT LEARNIN!
    I thought it would be better by now

    A second floor bathroom wont need a power flush toilet. The best option is a 1.6 gpf Gerber Viper or Avalanche, or one of the high end Kohler toilets with a 3" flush valve. Benefits of a pressure assisted toilet are lost when they are installed above grade.

    Pressure assisted flush is still considered new technology.

    Unless you must go with a rear outlet toilet due to the construction limitations, I would avoid the pressure assist toilets.
    It's an upside down world we live in.

    Can't stand power flush toilets, been replacing bladders, and installing recalled parts all year.
