Full Answer

Niagara toilets work using a hydraulic system that uses pressurized air to force water downward. This cuts back on the amount of water that needs to be funneled into the toilet bowl for each flush. It also makes the toilet quieter, eliminating the loud sound that accompanies water being forcibly sucked down the toilet. The highest selling Niagara toilet is the Dual Flush model. Rather than having a single flush handle, these toilets have two settings: one for getting rid of water waste and another for flushing solid waste. The first setting uses drastically less water than the second.

The Niagara Conservation Corporation has been in business for over 30 years. The corporation makes a variety of products for the home that are designed to reduce energy and water usage. The company is headquartered out of Fort Worth, Texas.

    How do I fix a toilet when the tank will not fill?

    A:

    Most home toilets use the gravity flow from the pressure in the tank to create a siphon to empty the contents of the bowl. If the tank doesn't fill, then the toilet won't flush. The problem often takes just a few minutes to fix. You need pliers and a bucket.

  • Q:

    How does a flushing toilet work?

    A:

    Flushing toilets use gravity and an increase in the height of water in the bowl when the user activates the flush valve to move water and waste through an "S-bend" into a drain pipe and out of the home. These simple devices have relatively few moving parts and, in most cases, offer many years of trouble-free service.
