Isn't a hot-dog, golfball, and kitty-litter eating toilet bad news for the sensitive plumbing of most apartment buildings, most of which can't stomach even the finely pulverized waste from a garbage disposal?
We checked in with, Harris Clark, the vice president of Sanitary Plumbing in Manhattan, which serves about 400 co-ops, condos and townhouses. He hadn't heard about the new law yet, but he was not unduly alarmed. It seems that the dual-flush toilet is not necessarily more powerful than your average commode. In fact, most New York City toilets are apparently already capable of flushing 56 chicken nuggets or two pounds of orange peels no problem. And, what's more, our waste pipes can handle it too!
