Toilets Questions & Answers

What does the term dual flush mean?

The term ‘dual flush’ refers to the ability of most toilets to have a smaller ‘half flush’ button in addition to the regular ‘full flush’ button. In your toilet, there are two main valves; the inlet and the outlet. The outlet valve, also known as the flush valve, used to only have one button to release water into the pan to flush away the waste. With Australia suffering through numerous droughts over the years, manufacturers have made a conscious effort to try to reduce water wastage, by giving customers the option of a reduced flush if the full flush is not required. Most older toilets can be converted to dual flush, by replacing your outlet valve with a new dual flush valve such as our FIX-A-LOO Hush Flush Outlet Valve
