TOTO Engineers the Plumbing Industry's First WaterSense Labeled High-Efficiency Commercial Flushometer Toilets.

Company's 1.28 gpf EcoPower Flush Valves and Commercial Flushometer Toilets are System-Engineered to Provide Maximum Performance and Water Savings.

TOTO's handsome chrome EcoPower flush valves (also available as concealed units) generate their own power each time water spins a small internal turbine when the unit is flushed. Stored in a series of capacitors, this auto-generated electrical energy powers the flush valves' sensor eye, microprocessor, and solenoid. There is no need to hard wire them to a building's electrical system (which significantly increases installation cost) or for routine disposable battery replacement (an ongoing maintenance expense harmful to the environment).
