I am trying to decide on a Caroma Dual Flush or these 1.0 GPF toilets I've been reading about, unfortunately I don't see any information on here regarding these models.

Does anyone have any experience with them, they seem to save more water than the dual-flush:

I've used a 1.0 gallon pressure assist.
I flushes things right down using the Flushmate pressure assist.
Most of the time, the cartridge seals between uses.

It's a little lacking in bowl wash. Most of the water goes through the trapway, not much for the bowl rinse.

In the next room, you notice the flush more than with a gravity setup.

As far as looks go, the Caroma and the Aquia look nicer.
Those have wash down bowls with a 2" flush valve gravity dual flush tank.
The Aquia and the EcoDrake 1.28 leave a cleaner bowl.

that's awesome thanks for the advice.

i guess the 1.0s aren't ready for prime-time just yet.
