I recently stayed at a hotel that had a regular looking toilet but the flush was quick and very quiet.
I am planning my bathroom remodel and would like to find a unit like this, however i rarely see any reference to this in the specs.
Anyone know of a resource to find this out or have any specific recommendation? I don't want to pay too much...
Your best bet is to call the hotel and ask them for the make and model of the toilet. I can think of lots of toilets that are quick, but not particularly quiet (like Toto); likewise, I can think of lots of toilets that are quiet but not "quick" (i.e. - a weak flush).
Most likelly that hotel has a very expensive flush valve system, but there is a better way to do accomplish a similar result.
Try The Toilet Zilencer. It is a very affordable retrofit valve that goes inside your existing flush valve, which allows you to control the water pressure and therefore the noise level during the flushing process.
