Waterhouse and Kohler -- perfect partners in sustainability

Waterhouse thinks that just one day isn't enough to celebrate World Health Day -- a day to focus global attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy and foster a movement to create societies focused on well-being.
Extreme weather events, land degradation and water scarcity are displacing people and affecting their health. Pollution and plastics are found at the bottom of our deepest oceans, the highest mountains, and have made their way into our food chain.
Today, we feature the revolutionary water-saving toilet designs from KOHLER.

"There’s is a lot of science behind toilet flushing,” said Dan Halloran, Senior Principal Engineer. “But all the customer truly wants is a clean bowl.”

When the design team took the plunge into swirl flushing, they set out to combine a complete flush with water efficiency. Some existing swirl-flushing toilets don't allocate enough water for flushing, leaving residue in the bowl. Others are guilty of allocating too much, thereby wasting water. Halloran's team was determined to find the "just right" balance.

The design team leaned on Design for Environment principles to look for efficiency during the consumer-use phase. They studied air flow and tweaked system configurations until they found the balance they were looking for, pairing Kohler's powerful AquaPiston® flushing engine with Revolution 360® technology. The team went a step further with CleanCoat™, a surface treatment that repels water and debris and prevents hard water stains.

The result? A toilet that flushes completely each time and stays cleaner longer. That means less toilet scrubbing for consumers and less water use for the environment. "As long-time Kohler engineers," Halloran said, "we consider this technology some of our best work."

Some of the highlights from the KOHLER collection:
San Souci one-piece toilet from KOHLER.
A 1.28-gallon flush provides significant water savings of up to 16,500 gallons per year, compared to a 3.5-gallon toilet, without sacrificing performance.
Upgrade your Corbelle toilet with the addition of the ContinuousClean system which harnesses the antimicrobial cleaning power of off-the-shelf white tablets to automatically fight germs with every flush and keep your bowl clean longer. Also featuring Revolution 360 swirl flushing technology, the Corbelle with ContinuousClean raises toilet cleanliness to a new level. ContinuousClean dispenses a consistent amount of toilet bowl cleaner with every flush to keep your bowl cleaner between flushes. Simply place a cleaning tablet in the tank compartment, set the desired amount with the adjustment dial, and the system does all the work, evenly mixing fresh water with the cleaning agent and dispensing cleaning solution into each flush via the rim jet.
Sculpted with flowing and balanced curves, the Veil® one-piece toilet pairs bold minimalist style with the comfort of personal cleansing. Upgraded to a 17" seating height, this Veil® dual-flush toilet meets ADA code requirements. Pump-assisted flushing delivers peak flush performance every time. A full suite of convenient features includes heated seat, night-light, hands-free opening/closing and automatic flush, plus a touchscreen remote. With emergency backup flushing at the touch of a button, you're always covered in the event of a power outage.
