Stealth™ Toilet - the inside: ©Niagara Conservation Corp. You thought a 1.6 gallon tank was saving you water... although it's kind of weak with a flush. But the folks at Niagara Conservation Company have invented a new toilet flushing system that only uses .8 gallons of water on each flush, saving the average family about 20,000 gallons of water a year. Meet the Stealth.
The Stealth uses a hydraulic technology to save water. When you flush the Stealth, water is forced high in the bowl by the vacuum created in the tank. This enables more thorough cleaning of the bowl. As the water leaves the tank, it leaves another vacuum that depressurizes the trapway, resulting in a suction force that that pulls the wastewater into the trapway.

The filling cycle of the Stealth forces the air to the top of the tank chamber and down the transfer tube into the trapway, also pushing more water into the bowl due to the pressurized trapway.

If you would like to see an actual demonstration video of a lot of fecal-looking material being flushed down the Stealth successfully, I'll leave the link to it below. I don't have the stomach to include it here....
But what you would probably like to witness are these savings from installing the Stealth in your home.

The Stealth has no expensive parts to replace and it's capable of operating with varying water pressure levels. For more information about the toilet, visit Stealth.
The video that demonstrates, in no uncertain terms, how effectively the Stealth works can be found at Inhabitat.com. Remember, I warned you about it.
