hi. i have a regular gravity fed toilet. i like the idea of these new(ish) pressurized water toilets that look like regular toilets but have a pressure vessel in the tank. is it worth replacing a perfectly fine gravity toilet with one of these? what are the benefits? and cost savings in terms of water use?

I have also been considering buying a pressurized toilet and I have done a lot of research on this subject and I have found that this type of toilet saves alot in water but you must get a High-Efficinecy toilet! When you think about it if you have to keep flushing over and over to make it work you will use alot more water! I have also found that the Dual-Flush is also a great water saver! Dual-flush toilets are technically high-efficiency models that save water by offering two separate flushing modes one for solid waste, and one for liquid. The liquid half-flush option uses just 0 .8 1.1 gallons of water per flush but if you deside to upgrade your toilet to a High-Efficinecy or a Dual-Flush toilet with high pressure you will use about 20% less water.
