Rear outlet UHET toilet
Niagara Conservation’s Stealth rear outlet ultra-high-efficiency-toilet gives renovators and remodelers a solution that doesn’t require tearing down walls. The UHET is EPA WaterSense-labeled and was awarded the MaP Premium label for performance and efficiency. It features a push button flush and uses 37% less water per flush than a standard 1.28 GPF model. Compared to the average use of older 3.5-gpf toilets, the Stealth can save up to 15,000 gal. of water per year. Niagara Conservation.

The valve also includes failsafe piston valves and an ADA-compliant, non-hold-open handle that provides an automatic shut off after every flush. American Standard.
