this dual-flush toilet from American Standard. The big flush is 1.6 gallons and the small flush is just 1.0 gallon.
Since I'll be living on a lake I'm trying to be sensitive about how much nitrogen and phosphorus I add to the lake. I plan on getting my septic tank pumped more often than strictly required for the health of the septic system. But for that to make a difference I need to minimize how much water I push through the entire system.
