Kohler Persuade

The Kohler Persuade Two-piece Comfort Height Toilet with Dual Flush.

If you ever told us that we’d be excited about buying a toilet… I mean, who gets excited about buying a toilet?

But we did!

Kohler’s new Persuade toilet not only looks quite nice, its dual flush mechanism will enable us to save water (up to 6,000 gallons annually!) and money.

From Kohler: “The Persuade toilet with Dual Flush technology provides significant water conservation while maintaining exceptional flushing performance. A two-button actuator offers .8- or 1.6-gallon flush options for light or bulk waste, saving as much as 6,000–25,000 gallons of water over traditional 1.6- or 3.5-gallon toilets. The concealed trapway and flush-to-wall installation enhance ease of cleaning. With its clean, simple lines, the elongated compact design offers an ideal solution for the contemporary bath or powder room.”

And because of its high-efficiency, the Persuade carries the WaterSense label. WaterSense is a program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures consumers receive a product that reduces water usage, while still meeting strict performance guidelines. In some states, buying the Persuade qualifies customers for a tax rebate (paying up to a third of the total purchase price), because it reduces demand for municipal water, and preserves precious groundwater supplies. But alas, not here in the Yellowhammer state. And as much as we love Alabama, we really think the powers that be ought to start doing a bit more for water conservation on the home front than they have been.
