...the incredible flushing power of those toilets at the value resorts and, if I remember correctly, the moderate resorts too?
What's that all about?!
Just a tap on those buttons and WOOSH!
Anyone else shocked every time they flush the toilet?

(I hope this isn't a totally inappropriate thread, but I've just been itching to ask this one!)

Yes, In fact my BIL had one the first ones I ever saw. It was a test model and he put it the new home he was building for his family.

They are often referred to as Turbo-toilets.

The high performance of this pressure-assisted toilet is achieved by using compressed air inside the tank, which creates a turbo-charged flushing action.

These toilets conserve on water and usually only one flush is needed-- to get the job done-- if you know what I mean. ;)

Actually your name for it is very fitting since one of the Brand names of these toilets is........Gerber Ultra Flush 21-312 .

How's that for coincidence? :laughing:

hahahaha. I KNEW we couldn't be the only ones! Although, since it's me and my sister, I'm feeling a little boy-ish admitting we call it that.... :lmao:

Oh... so many jokes, so little time!

But seriously, I'm glad that they are environment-friendly. I had a feeling that was why the toilets had such gusto, but now I am certain.

Strange question but is anyone else every afraid to flush those toilets at night? I'm afraid I'll wake the whole place up b/c it's so much louder than a regular toilet.

Turbo toilet!!! :rotfl: I've been reading about toilet noise on different boards and sites at the Value resorts but hadn't heard about them being super powered.

That's just too funny. :crazy:

I'm afraid to flush in the middle of the night... I hate waking everyone up with a shuttle launch in the john.

I hate these toilets. We don't flush them in the middle of the night and I have a hard time with the button. I don't know how kids manage to flush them because it takes a lot of force for me to do it.

My boys call them "turbo toilets" also!!! :lmao: It's guaranteed that one flush will do the job!!!

haha. OH my gosh, I am totally worried about flushing them at night! Probably will wake up the whole complex, you know?!
I, too, have a hard time pushing the button, but I'm not sure if it's because of strength or out of pure terror because I know what is coming! I kind of stand away a little and try to stretch my arm out to touch the button for as little time as possible. I wish it was kind of a tap and go situation, but it definitely isn't. I don't care how many times I use them and how many times I've been to WDW, they still scare the crap out of me(and you can take that as literally as you'd like)!

they are like that at the GF, too. I am afraid I am going to break my finger trying to push down on those buttons! and so LOUD! As soon as i push it I run out as fast as I can so I don't go deaf! :rotfl:

I was just thinking about it and the first time I saw one of these MONDO POWERED toilets, I wasn't even sure HOW to flush it. Had to look around for a bit before I found the button.
