The Stealth ultra-high-efficiency dual-flush toilet is equipped with two flush options: 0.5 GPF (half) and 0.95 GPF (full), with an average of 0.65 GPF. It includes a low-friction ceramic surface and fully glazed 2″ trapway. When the half-flush button is depressed, the Stealth Vacuum-Assist Power Chamber is sealed off to form a suction that prevents the water inside from being included in the flush.
