Modern toilet

If you are in the market for a modern toilet, there are a number of water saving toilets out there right now to fit your needs. Since Thomas MacAvity Stewart invented the first vortex flushing modern toilet in 1907, modern toilets have become sleeker and more efficient as the decades have gone by. Nowadays, pressure assisted toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush according to US law, but prior to the 1950s, each flush used 7 gallons of water or more.

Contemporary toilets have made life for much of the world much cleaner and more sanitary than ever before in history, but nearly 2.5 billion people across the globe are still without what many of us consider a basic necessity of life. Indeed, while many of us wonder about the best water efficient toilets might be for our modern lifestyle, over one billion people around the world still defecate in the open, with another billion using only pits in the ground to relieve themselves. Remember this as you look for the best modern toilet for your lifestyle, and consider how lucky we are to be able to take this type of thing for granted!
