Water saving toilet


Hey guys. I was pricing toliets today and I saw one that uses 1.28 gallons vs the standard 1.6. To me this seems like a very small saving, but im no expert. Any of you have any luck with them?

Some are really good - some not. But it's the direction they're heading
do a google search for reviews on the model you're looking at
