New York City residents, rejoice – toilets in new city buildings will soon have the capacity to flush 20 golf balls at a time. The New York City Council is now requiring all new buildings to install dual-flush toilets – and it appears that second-level powerful flush setting is really, really powerful. Watch the video of the American Standard taking its first of many full-on flushes ahead.
The city plans on installing the Dual-Option Siphonic Dual Flush Toilet in all new city buildings, and according the above video, the toilet can, swallow everything from 56 chicken nuggets to a pound of orange peels to even five large hot dogs with just a standard 1.6 gallon flush.
Of course, most people won’t need such a strong flush – which is why the toilet also offers a 0.9 gallon option – but whatever the specs, we applaud any initiative that’s sparked in the name of water efficiency.
