Where can I purchase a toilet that uses more than 1.6 gallons per flush?

If you have a demolition company in your area you can usually purchase surplus, recycled, salvage or whatever they're calling used building materials these days, fixtures like that. Call them vintage or antique. Cleaned up with new guts installed they're the flusher of all flushers. You can even have them refinished in a color of your chose if desired. I've also heard you can still buy new ones in Canada but you have to smuggle them back in to the USA. Who'd want to risk jail time over a toilet. Talk about being in the "Crapper"!

If your goal is a stronger flush, you might consider a "power-flush" toilet. They cost more, but they do get the job done (available just about anywhere that sells regular toilets). If you've ever been to a public restroom where the flush is really strong, it's probably a power-flush.

you may be able to find one in a surplus outlet for salvaged building supplies.canada has them also.a liscensed plumber wont be able to install one due to the law so it is diy.as for the fist answer,the problem with these new toilets is that most of the time you have to flush twice anyway.

You cannot get them in the US, they have been regulated. You can get a toilet that has a more powerful flush though.

You can adjust yours to use more water. There is a "V" clip on a rod that you need to squeeze to raise it up the rod more. Just raise it, flush, keep doing this until you are satisfied with the flush.

maximum lavatories made for the reason that approximately 1990 are the a million.6 gallon form consistent with flush. They use a minimum of a million/2 of what the lavatories from 25 years in the past used. There are twin flush lavatories out now, extraordinarily in water shortage counties around the rustic (and international) that use 0.6 gallon for urine flush and the finished flush for the monster.

Ditto the other answers.
And, if you have an issue with clogging, you might investigate the higher toilets used in handicapped stalls.
I have three boys at home and, ah, we've had issues with clogging.
My husband got fed up with it and put one of those toilets in and, since it has as he puts it a bigger "poop shoot" it works great.

Check out the restoration junkyards in your area. In their defense though the newest lo-flows work pretty well. Do a bit of research to find one that works well for you.

I think you can still get them in Canada.
