What is a Flapperless Toilet?

This is revolutionary flush technology. I love it when manufacturers think outside the box. It's about time someone redesigned the gravity flush toilet. This is so simple you have to wonder why it hasn't been done sooner. Maybe the flapper manufacturing companies had something to do with keeping the simplicity of this design off the market?

Standard toilet designs contain rubber flush balls that can leak due to improper seating or normal “wear and tear” from corrosive minerals in the water. This is not the case with a “true” flapperless toilet, which has NO sealing devices that control the flow of water from the tank to the bowl. A “true” flapperless toilet eliminates all such sealing devices and resultant concerns for the water conservation industry. In the Niagara Flapperless® tank, water is self-contained in either a 1.28- or 1.6-gallon “tipping bucket”.

There has been some confusion in the industry regarding flapperless toilets. A number of manufacturers with unconventional flappers are attempting to define their flexible seal as “flapperless”. Any flexible seal controlling the flow of water from the tank to the bowl can eventually deteriorate and leak. As a result, the user will waste water or, alternatively, have to replace the flexible seal, possibly increasing the consumed water amount per flush and compromising water conservation gains – something that is crucial we avoid, given the growing need to save water.

True Flapperless Technology: The only gravity-flush toilet that controls water flow with the use of patented “tipping bucket” technology, eliminating rubber flappers and flexible seals in the toilet tank.

The Niagara Flapperless® “Tipping Bucket” technology contains no flush balls or flappers. It’s virtually maintenance-free and will never leak.

As a conservationist company, it has been an ongoing challenge to keep the user from unintentionally or intentionally converting a 1.28- or 1.6-gallon per flush (GPF) toilet to a higher amount of consumed water per flush after the flexible seal has been replaced. A “true” flapperless toilet addresses this issue. The user will not have the responsibility of detecting possible leaks from a flexible seal within the tank and the additional challenge of locating the right replacement part – simply because with a Niagara Flapperless™, there is no maintenance involved, and no leaky seals to replace – EVER! A “true” flapperless toilet will remain a permanent 1.28- or 1.6 gallon per flush fixture!
