The Zurn 1.1 gpf low-flow toilet system (Zurn Models Z5615.395 and Z5615.396) represents a change from 3.5 gpf for the zoo, which receives more than one million visitors per year.
“I didn’t know how well 1.1 gallons would flush and was concerned we could have sewer issues because of the ultra low-flow,” says Jason Radesic, general maintenance plumber for Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. “Boy, was I wrong! The flush is very powerful and quick and the bowl wash could not be any better.”
Radesic says the decision to install this Zurn EcoVantage 1.1 gpf ZTR Sensor Wall Bowl System was based on the fact that the zoo could replace the existing 3.5 gpf units and save 2.4 gpf for each one. That aligns with the Zoo’s mission to save water wherever it can, and he says management likes the modern appearance of the new Zurn fixtures.
Zurn launched the Zurn High Efficiency Toilet and Carrier System (HETC)—a solution that combines the Zurn EcoVantage 1.1 gpf ZTR Sensor Wall Bowl System with the Zurn EZCarry High Performance Carrier System.
Together, the Zurn HETC system achieves water-savings and line carry performance unmatched in the commercial plumbing industry. Third-party verified testing conducted by Professional Service Industries Inc. (PSI) reveals the Zurn High Efficiency Toilet and Carrier System evacuates waste more than twice as far as industry-standard 1.28 gpf systems.
